Supercopa, FC Barcelona: reactions full of pride from Xavi and Gerard Piqué


Eliminated after extra time by Real Madrid in the semifinals of the Spanish Supercup (3-2), FC Barcelona bombs the chest.

The Clasico has kept all its promises. And after a great evening of football in Saudi Arabia, Real Madrid qualified for the final of the Spanish Super Cup by eliminating FC Barcelona after extra time (3-2). Despite the defeat, the smiles were rather out of the side of the Blaugranas, like Gerard Pique at the end of the game.

“We played well, we took risks, we went looking for the game, they took the game on the counterattack, they entered the box with a lot of players and scored a goal, but playing like that , we will win. It’s very easy to talk when the game is over, but after seeing what we saw after the 2-2 draw, competing like we did against Madrid is something that has to leave us with the head held high”, rejoiced the central defender.

Undisguised pride

Xavi, too, felt a sense of duty, despite the elimination. “I’m sad, angry, because we could have won. With the exception of the first twenty minutes, because we play with complexes, we were competitive, I think we were better than Real in the game. We did not know how to manage the transitions, we had suffered against “, he launched before insisting.

“We can be proud to have been competitive, it’s a step forward despite the result, we are on the right track. But a defeat in a Clasico, it’s sad. These are stupid mistakes, losing balls where we did, we were not always responsible with the ball, we must be more. We have to believe it. We lost complexes and we proved that we could fight with everyone. We can leave with our heads held high ”, he concluded. Despite the elimination, the new Barça may have been born tonight.
