Barcelona manager Xavi believes his team was fortunate to win 3-1 against Villarreal in La Liga play on Saturday night.

In the final minutes, late goals from Memphis Depay and replacement Philippe Coutinho sealed the victory, and Xavi stated it was a crucial step forward for his new squad.

With three points at El Madrigal, the Catalan giants have six points from their first two league games under the former Spanish international.

“We did not dominate the game as we expected but we played against a great team”, as per reports from Marca.

“We were lucky in parts as Villarreal did not deserve to lose.

“It has taken a lot from us on the night.

“We have been fortunate with Memphis’ goal, but these are three golden points for us.”
