Xavi insists he is ‘not angry’ about Barcelona’s draw with Benfica

    Barcelona manager Xavi has denied he is angry that his side failed to beat Benfica, even though the 0-0 draw means they must likely beat Bayern Munich away to progress to the knockout stages.

    It was the new Barça head coach’s first European game in charge on Tuesday night but despite playing some attractive football, they could not score. Things could have been even worse for La Blaugrana too if Haris Seferovic had converted an extremely presentable chance at the death.

    The point means Barcelona are second in Group E, two points ahead of Benfica – who play basement-dwellers Dynamo Kyiv in their final game. If the Eagles secure the victory that is expected of them, a draw will not be enough for Barça to clinch second, due to head-to-head record.

    Despite this, after the game Xavi insisted that he was not frustrated by the result, also backing his players to get the job done on matchday five.
