Xavi Hernandez's future as coach is up in the air from July 1, although it does seem that he will have to continue his career as a coach without having left a good impression at the Champions League level

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Xavi Hernández will finish his stage like trainer of the FC Barcelona when finalising the current season and except a performance that for now does not seem too possible, the egarense will close with a balance no too positive in the Champions League. Unlike his period like player, Xavi has not been able to dominate the maximum competition of clubs and the tie of this Wednesday in front of the Naples perhaps was the ideal sample.

And it is that as we explained in FCBN, the reading of the party of the Catalan did not seem the best regarding the changes that made, and the moment in which it did them, putting perhaps in risk the triumph, and later even the tie that finally finish achieving his Barça. And it is that in which it was his party 15 like trainer in Champions, Xavi looked for grieve his seventh victory, one that finally did not arrive.

Results that have not accompanied the project of Xavi in the Barça

Instead, the Barcelona trainer had to conform with his third tie in the tournament since it is trainer of the first team culé, remembering that his stage initiated it already almost deleted in phase of groups of the 2021/22, and where could not with the Benfica and later fell in front of the Bayern of Munich of conclusive way. Since, and happening also by the six parties of first phase of the past season and the current, Xavi only could achieve 6 victories in the 15 already mentioned parties, only one of them of round of 'KO', which was the one of this Wednesday in Naples.

The balance for now is of the same quantity of triumphs and defeats, with six, in addition to three ties that complete the register, remembering that for example it fell in his visits to Shakhtar Donetsk or Amberes, and finished empatando in front of the Inter of Milan in the Spotify Camp Nou, in a party that finish condemning to the team to play again the Europe League. Like this, and to favour of what can offer the draw, the Barça and Xavi look forward to to achieve this seventh victory to advance to quarter-finals and at least improve slightly the feelings of the míster.
