Xavi: Barcelona can't leave happy

Xavi’s FC Barcelona secured a round 16 spot in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday after they beat Intercity by 4:3.

Xavi’s men were rescued by Ansu Fati’s extra-time winner to help them edge out Intercity.

Speaking to the press after the match, the Barcelona manager had these things to say

“We conceded a lot in a game that we had very much under control,” he told a post-match press conference. “We haven’t blocked centres, we haven’t defended the area well.

“We can’t leave happy. The game has been pretty good, but we have to be more forceful. In defence it can happen, but the game had to be finished and there has been a lack of forcefulness.

“But we had to dominate the game, and we were good in the rhythm. We have interesting things, but we have suffered a lot. We’ve gotten too complicated.

“Today I’m happy with the game. We are lacking forcefulness. But we are in a good moment of play. I have to think about what we can improve.”

Barcelona will discover their last-16 opponents in Friday’s draw, with the tie to be played following the LaLiga clashes against Atletico and the Supercopa tie against Real Betis in Saudi Arabia.
