Although it does not be used to to be his style after a so enclosed victory, Xavi Hernández himself showed satisfied this Sunday by the victory of the FC Barcelona in front of the Athletic of Madrid (0-1). The triumph in the Metropolitan did that the culés closed the day like the only leader of LaLiga and thus the míster commented in press conference that "no only are three points, is a victory that gives us a lot of morals for what remains us of League, because we have given a hit on of the table to be candidates".

Remembering the defeat of the Madrid in front of the Villarreal, the technician of the Barça 'threw' of his style and equally recognised that they did not offer his best version. "Against the Espanyol said that we deserved more and here carry us the points without playing so well. We have not won with a so excellent game like which did in front of the Espanyol or the Intercity, but carry us three points of gold. The message is that we also can win without playing well, because no always go to be able to play well", explained Xavi.

The reality is that Dembélé could advance to the Barcelona team in the first time and from there the Barça had to devote to defend this advantage. By this, Xavi did not doubt in standing out the capacity of "suffering" of his footballers: "we Have won being a team and a family". "The first half hour has convinced me, because we have dominated and have understood that had the superiority by the centre. Like this it has arrived the goal of Dembélé, in a driving of Pedri that has supported in Gavi", added on the beginning of the party.

The one of Terrassa equally wanted to value the have achieved the three points without the presence of Robert Lewandowski. "Also it is important to win without Lewy, because it is a key piece. We have missed him in the pressure. Ferrán Has done this work when it has gone out, but Lewy is a very important player for us", detailed.

A variant of the míster

The Barça surprised with his initial system when opting by not going out with a trident of three pure attackers. On this Xavi explained that "when you change the system, the footballer does not finish to feel of the all comfortable. We have changed our usual 4-3-3 in attack by a 3-4-3, because it thought that it would give us more possession and pulcritud in the game, but the Athletic has us presionado and has hampered us the exit of balloon".
