The Xavi era is well underway, and it’s looking quite familiar

    The overriding sentiment from Barcelona’s 0-0 draw at home to Benfica on Tuesday night will probably be frustration.

    Frustration that Frenkie de Jong’s header was just too central to beat Odysseas Vlachodimos, frustration that Ronald Araujo found himself just offside before volleying the ball into the back of the net, and frustration that a dominant display didn’t result in the victory that would’ve sealed Champions League progression.

    While there is reason to bemoan the missed chances and ask ‘what if?’, the prevalent feeling should undoubtedly be hope.

    Why? Because Xavi is home. And boy, does it show.
