I’m very upset – Xavi criticizes Barcelona players after Valencia draw

Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez has criticized his players for being profligate in front of goal, as they drew 1-1 with Valencia in LaLiga on Saturday.

The result extended the Catalans’ winless run to three matches.

João Félix opened the scoring at Mestalla for Barça, but Hugo Guillamón drew the hosts level in the 70th minute.

However, Xavi’s men had chances to win the game late on, but Ferran Torres and Raphinha both squandered them.

Barcelona ended the game with an xG of 3.06 compared to Valencia’s 0.48.

“I am really upset and really sad because we created many chances. We missed many opportunities. I think that’s what has happened all season.

“We dominate the games. We played so well today. It’s a pity because we are not being efficient. I think we had five, six or seven great opportunities today and we didn’t score them.

“It’s what has happened all season. We need to keep going, it’s just one point, which is not enough for us. It’s a pity because we played so well to win this game,” Xavi said after the game.

Barça are now six points behind leaders Girona, who can move nine clear with a win over Alavés on Monday.
