“Now people won’t say we lack goals. Now they say we’re lucky. Let’s see what they say next week,” Xavi told the media following the away win against Villarreal.
The Barcelona coach went on to explain why the victory was important despite his team not putting in the best of performances.
“Today was a victory of spirit, which is very welcome. You also have to win when you don’t play well or don’t play too well. Today we played worse than the other day against Benfica, where we deserved to win but it didn’t happen.”
Xavi has got two wins in two matches in La Liga so far. The Villarreal win were also the first three points the Catalans got away from Camp Nou in the 2021-22 season.
Next up, Blaugrana will face Real Betis on Saturday, December 4.
