“Barcelona’s match against Inter Milan is a final” – Xavi Hernandez says
Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez has described the club’s Champions League second leg game against Inter Milan as a final.
Barcelona are looking to avoid another defeat and avoid elimination from the UCL group stage for the second consecutive seasons.
After a 1-0 loss at the San Siro, the Spanish Giants host Inter Milan at Spotify Camp Nou and Xavi can’t stress enough how important the game is.
Xavi said in a pre match press conference :
“We need to go out for everything and need to be positive,”
“We have to try to not feel the pressure and enjoy the game.”
He continued :
“It’s an amazing scene seeing the Camp Nou full, it’s something to enjoy and if they win, even better. If they win the match it will change the dynamic of the group,” said the ex-Barca midfielder.
“We’re expecting similar to what we saw in the other leg; Inter Milan are very defensive, normally very far back with their medium block.
“We’ve been working hard in our training to work on their block and I think we’ve improved from the Barca of the last 15 minutes in Milan.”
Barcelona must make sure they win tonight, a defeat or a draw would be disastrous to their qualification hopes.
