“It’s hard to highlight something today, but I’ll say that our intensity,” Xavi added.
“Everything was done well, and the understanding of the match was good.”
“Dembélé had suffered a lot in his first years here, but I always said it. He has great abilities, and he deserves everything that is happening to him.”
“There are no wingers in the world that can cut inside to both sides like Dembélé can,” Xavi concluded.
Barcelona will face Bayern Munich in the next UEFA Champions League match.
