Xavi Hernández has been very critical after the suffered victory of FC Barcelona against Getafe, in which his team did not offer their best version on the pitch

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona achieved to win to the Getafe, but did not convince. The culés came of consecutive exhibitions and, in the return to LaLiga after two weeks without action, signed a quite argued triumph in which it did not see the best version of the team and in which only the individual performances marked the differences on the terrain of game.

Xavi Hernández has celebrated the victory, but no how has presented his team. In room of press has recognised that it was a very dense party and that, in the attack, remained to half gas. It threw of self-criticism and sent a message to improve the feelings and avoid the suffering in the next parties, because the calendar will not give rest.

"I think that we have not been well, we have been dense. We have not attacked well. We have defended well. It is difficult to attack with a line of block so low", began saying, adding that "we have not been fine. Hay That improve. But the victory is importantísima. We have left the goal to zero. It is not the best split home on our part".

"We carry us three points without playing well. In the second part has been missing us aggressiveness in the rival goal"

It has insisted, besides, in the exhaustion of the team, although it rescues the importantísimo triumph: "we Have noticed the mental tiredness of the Supercopa. We have paid it. It is an important triumph but without being at all well. It is necessary to be honest. We have been well without ball, but have not generated. It has cost us. We carry us three points without playing well. In the second part has been missing us aggressiveness in the rival goal, in the first have been better".

Xavi has done reference to that also 'okay' the effort of the Getafe, that "has done well the things. It has been aggressive. To us it has been missing us aggressiveness in attack. We have defended well", rescuing that they are "three glorious points without playing of the all very" and that "playing and suffering also wins . There are days denser. But the team believes, is generous... There are positive points but have not been fine in attack".

Proper names of the party

On the performance of Ter Stegen, again providencial, the trainer culé said that "we are seeing to the best Marc from does time. Has confidence, is happy. The stop of the one against one is spectacular. It is a leader. It is trascendente in the game, no only stopping. Also with the feet. I gladden me a lot by him".

Of Raphinha, that assisted to Pedri, stood out that "it is determinant. It has done the pass of goal, the other day marked and gave a pass. It is necessary to minimise the losses and know choose when risk. But all the confidence for Rafa. If it angers it is normal, I also did it. Has good predisposition".

On Ansu Fati, that did not have opportunity to shine as '9', signalled that "it has worked a lot, but has had few occasions because there were a lot of men of the Getafe backwards. It has helped us in defence. They close . They did us go in by out. The circulation has not been good. We have been dense. But he has been well. But in general we have not been well, we have not generated the normal occasions and have not been hit".
