Xavi had a lot to say to DAZN after the game.
He commented: “The summary is simple, 60 very good minutes from us and we scored a goal, 20 good minutes from Madrid and they scored two. Efficiency makes the difference, we had chances and we controlled it, it was to make it 2-0. It changed the game. Madrid’s victory today is unfair. .
“We didn’t go much for high pressure. It was difficult for us and we have a great team with a strong side in front of us. It’s a shame because what we planned was done.”
Speaking about individuals, “Gavi was sensational, he is the soul of the team. He played as a pivot and did good things, he didn’t lose balls, he won tackles and he gave us something fundamental. The strength of the team.
“Bellingham made the difference today, he scored the second from a lateral cross from the back and it was an act we talked about, it was a mistake, it was an equalizer and it was a grab… It was his efficiency today. He made the difference.”
