Xavi Hernandez debuts with victory
Xavi Hernandez has started his adventure as Barcelona coach with a victory.
The Catalans triumphed minimally 1: 0 against Espanyol at the “Camp Nou”. In the match valid for the 14th round in La Liga.
The first half ended as it started, with no swinging gates. Although Barcelona had full initiative.
The only goal of the match came in the 48th minute of the match. When Depay concretized the penalty he won himself.
Afterwards, Espanyol had many chances to draw. But lacked luck. They even hit the post twice, but the ball tonight did not want to enter the gate of Ter Stegen.
Thus, Xavi remains with sweet taste from the first match as coach of the Blaugrana, who now have 20 points and are ranked sixth. Eight less than the leader, Sevilla.
On the other hand, Espanyol remains 11th with 17 points in total.
