The 3 errors of Xavi Hernández in the Clásico against Real Madrid

The FC Barcelona signed one of the worst weeks in its recent history by losing the Clasico against Real Madrid just days after nearly being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the group stage. And one of the culprits is Xavi Hernández, who made serious mistakes in the match at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Here we tell you the three main mistakes of the Spanish coach in the match against Real Madrid.

The 3 errors of Xavi Hernández in the Spanish Clásico

-Missense initial alignment: The Spanish coach opted for several pieces that they left to duty. He used Baldé as a left-back, even though he doesn’t trust him in big Champions League games (it doesn’t make sense). He gave continuity to Sergi Roberto as a right back, when it is clear that he does not have the conditions to mark one of the best wingers in the world. He continues to give ground to Dembélé and Raphinha when their recent matches are very weak, despite having Ansu Fati on the bench. An initial approach where he left his team very exposed and ended up paying him.

-Continuity of Dembélé and Raphinha: The French and the Brazilian were among the worst players on the team and it took a long time to get them out to change the scene a bit. Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres entered and changed the game, showing that they have the conditions to be important. One more demonstration of his weak reading of the meeting.

-Few variables from the board: His team was never able to impose their game and Xavi never opted for a change from the board. The changes were late and piece by piece. Nothing positive to get out of his field management, losing the tactical battle against Carlo Ancelotti. He is still very green for the demands of a project that needs to win from minute one to recover economically.
