Xavi praises team after comeback win against Osasuna

Barcelona beat Osasuna 2-1 with just 10 men.

The Catalan giants lost their star striker Robert Lewandowski to a first-half red card.

Surprisingly Gerard Pique received a red card after arguing with referees and following them down the tunnel.

But goals from Raphinha and Pedri secure three points for Xavi’s men last night.

“I am really proud of the team, of the family that we are inside the dressing room,” Xavi said.

“Everything was against us today: the refereeing decisions, the goal, going down to 10.

“We were intelligent. We took our moments well and were clinical with the chances we had. We were solid in the second half, worked hard and we will be leaders during the World Cup break. It’s a team win today. I am very proud.”

Xavi also gave his thought on Robert Lewandowski red card in the first half of the game.

“I am told their goal is a clear foul, a block on [Alonso] at the corner,” he said.

“The red card? In my opinion it is dubious. But it doesn’t matter what I say. What’s important is what the referee thinks, who won’t speak today. I think they should have to come out and explain decisions because a lot is at stake.”
