Barcelona coach , Xavi Hernandez, does not think about the hunt for the Spanish League title. Barcelona is very late because it is 15 points from Real Madrid.
Barcelona won 4-0 over Athletic Bilbao in week 26 at Camp Nou, Monday (28/2/2022). Thanks to this victory, Barcelona poked Atletico Madrid in fourth position even though with the same number of points.
“At the moment we don’t rule anything out, knowing that Madrid are strong,” Xavi said of Barcelona’s chances of winning.
Although the chances of winning are very difficult, Xavi did not want to relax the spirit of his squad. Moreover, Barcelona is on fire , scoring a win with four goals in three matches in a row.
“We have to move up in position. We are still fourth and we have to move up to third. A calm week will come to prepare for the match against Elche,” he stressed.
Barcelona ‘s front line problem is now starting to be resolved. The arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a solution. The ex-Arsenal scored five goals in three games.
Memphis Depay is also recovering from injury. While Ousmane Dembele showed an attractive game by scoring one goal and providing two assists.
“The opponent is an extraordinary team. I think we played a serious game. The feeling is really good and that’s what we’re working on. I’m very happy,” he said.
Xavi also again praised Aubameyang, who is now a mainstay of Barcelona ‘s attack line .
“Obviously players with goalscoring instincts have joined – Aubameyang, Adama Traore. We have Dembele back. Memphis is back from injury and scoring goals. Luuk is back and scoring goals. Scoring four goals against Athletic is not easy at all.”
