Xavi- Winning LaLiga brings Stability

Barcelona is the favorite to clinch the La Liga title, as they are on a mission to move 15 points clear from Real Madrid when they welcome Girona at the Spotify Camp Nou on Monday night.

Barcelona was knocked out from the Copa Del Ray in the semi-finals second leg against their rivals Real Madrid 4-0 (agg 4-1) and they have a chance to avenge that defeat by extending their lead in the league table.

Xavi Hernandez received a lot of criticism after being humiliated at home by the reigning La Liga champions on Wednesday, however, the Blaugrana coach came out to clear the air.

“I don’t get it. Winning La Liga is the bee’s knees. We have won five Champions League in our history. Which is really good, but it is demanded that we win it?

“Winning La Liga brings stability. I remember former Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said after winning the Champions League that the objective was to win La Liga.

“From the inside, we value really highly what we are doing against a really strong Madrid. Winning La Liga is being minimized when for us it will be extraordinary,” he said.

The Barca coach is hopeful that the 4-0 loss against Real Madrid will boost the morale of the team when they play Girona as they shift their focus to the league. Barca has been consistent in the league having won 23 games, lost twice, and drawn twice.

Barca is missing vital players in the squad, with Dembele and Pedri being the most critical players who are out due to injury. Despite that, the absence of Dembele and Pedri has not affected the team's momentum so far.

Xavi is putting his faith in Ausu Fati and Ferran Torres to do the job and the duo has not disappointed so far.

Fati and Torres found themselves on the scoresheet against Elche in their previous league clash. The two have been on the receiving end, with a lot of criticism from the Culers supporters, however, have rectified that with a well-class performance that saw Barca win 4-0. Barca fans will hope they will put on a similar world-class performance against Girona.

Second-placed Real Madrid lost their game against Villarreal on Saturday, having taken the lead but could not hold the Villarreal threatening attack. The loss has seen them drifting away from Barcelona and close to their Madrid rival Atletico Madrid, who are currently occupying third place.

The two Madrid sides are two points apart,  Atletico Madrid won their game against Rayo Vallecano 2-1.
