The party of the FC Barcelona in The Ceramics is not to throw rockets, all the contrary. The team left the feeling, more than ever, that there is a lot of work by in front. The result was, perhaps, very been bulky for what really was the clash between 'groguets' and Barcelona, but this time the fortune and the goal, that so much resists , was of the side of the Barça of Xavi Hernández.

The Barça empataba in the 88' 1-1 and finished winning 1-3. Luck or 'the flower' of Xavi that follows without knowing the defeat with the culés in his first three parties. However, the egarense has done reference to that there is a lot of work by in front and that the team has to go to by more than what has showed against the Villarreal in The Ceramics, because suffer so much to win is not the way to be followed.

"We have suffered a lot in the second part and in the ends of the first. It is a rival of level Champions. It has cost us go out of his high pressure. It has cost us a lot", it began saying the trainer culé, the one who added that the clash was the indicated for the direct game and highlighted that "we have dominated less than what I believed. We have played against a gentleman instrument. We have had the luck that did not have the day of the Benfica".

"They are three points of gold. It is a triumph that is blessed water"

It was a victory more than complicated, as it has stood out Xavi: "The tie is of a kickoff of silly band. They are three points of gold. It is a triumph that is blessed water. The Villarreal has not deserved to lose today. It has been a very equalised party", commented, underlining that it was the party, "of the three that carry, the one who less have dominated and less have deserved to win. But it is a victory tremenda that gives us some brutal morals. The players have given it everything".

"The referees a day can help you and another prejudice".

Xavi has not wanted to 'wet' in the played controversy of the party, the possible penal of Gerard Hammered by hand inside the area: "I will not speak of the referees. It is a difficult work. I am not to judge if they are hands or no. In addition to the referee, is the VAR. It is difficult to be referee. Have my greater respect. A day can help you and another prejudice".

It has stood out the work of the Villarreal, that in moments 'suffocated' to the culés with the high pressure: "it Has had a very high pressure. They arrived very well and have subjected us in the second part. We have to improve. We carry us three points of gold. We have to play better. We have to dominate more, surpass the pressure... But we are in the good way. We will give it everything, will not be by sacrifice and work. They are three vital points".

Of the flower of Xavi, has commented that "we already will see if have flower in the next parties. The triumph is not luckily. The second goal is a tactical situation that had worked. We have won to a big rival, and have failed clear occasions. Also we could speak of the flower of the contrary...".
