Xavi Hernandez has declared that Barcelona were far better than Real Madrid after last night’s 1-1 draw.
Real Madrid needed Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty to rescue a point at home against Barcelona.
The Spanish international said : “Barcelona were much better than Madrid. It is a shame that we did not take the three points because we would have secured the league title,”.
“The draw does neither side much good. The team are always more ambitious and we wanted the three points. We controlled the game well and were good at the back but we made it hard for ourselves at the end.”
