Xavi: “For the attitude, effort and sacrifice, we deserved more”


Xavi’s statements to CNN Portugal and Eleven Sports after Benfica’s 0-0 draw with FC Barcelona, ​​in a game for the fifth and penultimate round of the E of the Champions League, played in Barcelona, ​​Spain.

For the attitude, effort and sacrifice, we deserved more. Due to the intensity and commitment of my team to the game, we deserved the victory.

Now there is no scenario other than winning [em Munique]. The three points give us the ranking. Let’s attack, play with today’s personality and try to dominate the ball.

At the end of the game, Benfica had a very clear opportunity from Seferovic, in what was the only mismatch of our defense. We were superior to Benfica, we deserved the three points. But it’s football. We tried everything, created chances, but we couldn’t score. One point is not enough.

I’m very happy with the team’s effort and solidarity, but we lacked a goal that allowed us to qualify now”.
