Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez remains optimistic in terms of performance. Despite having to defeat rivals like Real Madrid

Azulgrana lost to Real Madrid 2-3 in extra time in the Spanish Super Cup semi-final. last wednesday After a 2-2 draw in normal time, the team from Catalunya missed the final.

“I’m sorry,” Xavi said after the ufabet game.

“Looking at the performance in the first 20 minutes, I think we played with complexity. I’m thinking about the timing and the results of the matches that are happening right now. But after we were freed from that complexity I think we were a better team and in the end we got into the game.

“If you try tossing a coin and guessing it will turn heads in Barcelona’s favourites. no one said anything but it leaves tails 

“I think we are on the right track. Today we have some key players recovering. We say goodbye to the champion but also freed oneself from some complexity.”

Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema twice gave Real Madrid the lead but both times Barcelona pegged them back, with Luuk de Jong equalising before half-time and then Ansu Fati heading in to force extra-time.

Fede Valverde scored the winner to send Madrid through to Sunday’s final, when they will meet either Atletico Madrid or Athletic Bilbao, who play the second semi on Thursday.
