Xavi Hernandez was joined to the pre-game news conference by Jordi Alba ahead of Barcelona's match against Benfica. The Blaugranas were defeated 3-0 by the Portuguese team in their previous meeting and now face a must-win situation in order to avoid a knockout game in Munich.

Alba discussed the new manager, his methods, and the team's mentality ahead of tomorrow's game.

“The derby gave us a lot of confidence. We deserved to win, we suffered, but the feelings are very good. Tomorrow is a final and we have to take advantage of playing in front of our fans.”

“I have a huge respect for Xavi, as a coach and as a friend. He will help us. It has already been seen this week that the team has changed.

“Xavi has put a lot of emphasis on having talks with the players, he wanted to know everyone’s opinion.”

“I think it’s normal for a group to have rules, whatever you want to call it- Order. I think everyone is responsible for what they do and it will surely help us a lot.”
