Xavi compares current Barcelona team to Pep's City

Xavi, the head coach of Barcelona, thinks his team can attack as effectively as Manchester City, the Premier League champions

La Blaugrana is under the leadership of Xavi as they pursue their first La Liga championship since 2019.

On the strength of an amazing 2-2 draw against Manchester United at home in the middle of the week, the Catalans are continuing to advance and compete for honours in the Copa del Rey and Europa League.

A Champions League qualifying spot is Xavi’s ultimate goal, and he is certain that his forward players can trouble any defence they come up against in the upcoming weeks.

“We and City are perhaps the best offensive teams in Europe. It’s amazing that some people think I’m a defensive coach, according to Marca’s reporting.

This weekend, Barcelona hosts Cadiz while rival Real Madrid plays 24 hours earlier. If Real Madrid wins, the difference between the two teams may be cut to five points overnight. The contest is finely matched going into the second leg at Old Trafford, where Xavi’s team will play in the Europa League last 16 play-off.
