Why Barcelona Lost 2-0 To Bayern – Xavi

Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandes, has said his side lost to Bayern Munich in the Champions League because they were not clinical in front of goal.

Both sides clashed on Tuesday night at the Allianz Arena in Germany with Bayern winning 2-0, thanks to goals from Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane.

This made it the seventh time Barcelona has failed to record a win against Bayern in Germany.

“When you let teams off the hook in the Champions League, against sides of this level, you end up paying,” Xavi told Movistar.

“We were better. We had six or seven really clear chances, but Bayern are not so forgiving.”

“The first goal is a mistake from a set play in terms of marking and the second goal is because we didn’t make a foul,” Xavi added. “They do it to stop transitions. It’s about competing.”

“The result does not reflect the game. You dominate, create more chances and you end up paying for not being clinical.

“But we will take the positives and even though it was a negative result, we can learn from the errors. It’s a step back. We did enough to draw if not win, a defeat is not deserved, but we made mistakes in the two boxes.”
