LIGA - Barça: Xavi admits not deserving victory at Villarreal

2 win out of 2 matches for Xavi Hernandez in La Liga. The Spanish coach has gained his second league victory since his arrival on the bench of FC Barcelona before the last international break, and this on the home ground of Villarreal (3-1).

A success acquired in the second half, which allows them to return to three points of the top 4. The former blaugrana midfielder spoke after the meeting, admitting that the yellow submarine could have known a better fate if Barça had not had the bit of luck necessary for this success.

“We dominated less than I expected but in the end we found the goal with Memphis,” said the 41-year-old technician.

"We played against a great team, at Champions League level, very well prepared tactically and we defended well but they scored on a stupid throw-in. These are three golden points. We have to be honest and we have been a bit lucky. Villarreal didn't deserve to lose, unlike us on Tuesday, but we have to appreciate the victory. It's great on very difficult terrain. The players deserve it.”
