Xavi Hernandez opinion on ElClásico victory

Xavi Hernandez believes that a Barcelona victory in El Clasico would be a “big blow” for Real Madrid

From a Barcelona perspective, Sunday’s match against Real Madriopid is their most important El Clasico fixture in La Liga for some time.

A victory for the Blaugrana would put them twelve points clear of Carlo Ancelotti’s side with 12 games of the season to go, which would be a huge margin for Los Blancos to chase down.

Speaking ahead of El Clasico, Ancelotti was keen to play down the match’s importance in the title race. In his own pre-match press conference, Xavi Hernandez did the same, stating his belief that there is still a long way to go.

“Whatever happens tomorrow, it won’t be definitive. There’s still a long way to go, but winning would mean a big blow for Real Madrid.”

Barcelona are closing in on a first La Liga title in four years. A victory for Xavi’s side would surely out one hand on the trophy, as they target a domestic treble this season.
