The Blaugrana had a wild night at Estadi Ciutat de València yesterday when Luuk de Jong netted a winner in the stoppage time.
The match ended 3-2 to Barcelona and Ter Stegen saved a crucial penalty to keep them in the game.
De Jong came off in the second half to score the winner and Xavi praised the duo for their impact in the game.

“The first half hasn’t been good at all. The team seemed mentally and physically fatigued. Playing on Thursday still weighed us down. In the second half we were much better,” Xavi said.
“One of the keys is Marc’s save and another is Luuk’s goal. These are details that ultimately count. That’s why we have a great goalkeeper and a great striker. They’ve made a great effort.
“In the end we need the whole team. Tired people, with a lot of minutes, we are giving rest and rotations. Hence the changes. The dynamic is very positive and we have to keep going.”
