Xavi frustrated after Barcelona's draw with Galatasaray

The Catalan giants drew against Galatasaray at Camp Nou.

Xavi will meet the Turkish giants next week to earn their place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

The manager was not happy with his squad’s performance in the first-leg and believes his team lacked the intensity to squeeze out a win.

Barca will be facing Osasuna this Sunday before meeting Galatasaray again on Wednesday night.

“Given that we were playing at home this isn’t a good result. In the second half we were a little bit better but when you drop intensity things get a bit more even between the teams,” Xavi said.

“But I told you yesterday. This is the Europa League and the rivals are here by their merits. It’s a tough, quality competition and we need to be humble in our work.

“Right now it’s all square – we’ve not lost everything thanks to this result, nor have we put ourselves in a winning position. We go to Istanbul needing to win to go through – just like when we went to Naples.”
