In an extensive interview conceded to "ESPN", Xavi Hernández has desgranado the actuality of the Classical that will confront this next Saturday to Real Madrid and FC Barcelona in Santiago Bernabéu, ensuring that the culés arrive in a big moment of form and expecting that Leo Messi can play against the eternal rival, when being "the best player of the history". "I am of the Barça, expect that they win everything. I think that the teams are of a similar level if Messi does not play. The Madrid has injuries, but his injuries are not so important like the one of Messi. It is difficult to win in the Bernabéu, very, very difficult without him, but think that the Barça is in a good moment", has commented.

Xavi Hernández always has undone in praises to the Argentinian. "Messi stands out like the best in the best moment in the history of the football. But it would not be so good without Ronaldo and would not have won all these Balloons of Gold. And I do not think that Ronaldo had won all those also. They promote the one to the another. The difference between the two is that whereas the two are big goleadores, Messi is much more involved in the game of the team".

The one of Terrassa thinks that Leo Messi already has converted "in a man". "It is shy, but when it has you confidence can see how is he and is one very good person. It is a joker, one of the biggest in the changing room. It is inventive, very ironic in his humour. It is intelligent and is skillful. Above all else, he is a winner". On the FC Barcelona, did not expect that it could play so well without Messi. "They have arrived to a spectacular level without Messi. Have intensity in defence, presionan, do not give time to that the another team think. The Barça will win trophies this season, trust this. The things see very well for the next parties; have a good feeling".

Xavi Hernández, on the contrary that a lot of fans, bases in two statistics to leave clear that the Real Madrid is "very strong". "They are very organised, with two lines of four. Physically, they are strong. The people says that Benítez is defensive and yes, they have received fewer goals (seven) that any another team. But also it has annotated more (26) that any another".

And, finally, Xavi has described how lives a Classical from inside. "It loves me, it is the best party, is the rivalry of football in the purest form. Play in the Bernabéu is as be a gladiator that goes in to the Coliseo. It is the eternal rivalry, an inspiration to feel that all the world is in your against. It does not treat only of football. It is like a village against the village of at the side, that is it everything for all the people. And then you begin to play, annotate and only see to 200 fans in the high of the terracings and celebrate with them. It is beautiful, one of the best feelings in the life".
