XAVI IS AWARE THAT ELIMINATION IS NEAR: We have little chance, we no longer hold our fate in our hands!

Barcelona football coach Xavi Hernandez said that the situation is complicated and that his team cannot decide on their own placement in the round of 16 of the Champions League, ahead of the match against Bayern Munich.

We have to prove that we can compete against such teams, regardless of what will happen in Milan. We have a small chance, but we know it will be very complicated. We no longer hold our own destiny in our hands – Xavi said at the press conference.

Barcelona players will play on Wednesday at 21:00 on their field against Bayern Munich, the game of the fifth round of Group C in the Champions League. With four victories, the German team has already qualified for the round of 16, while Barcelona is third with four points, three less than the second-placed Inter.

Before their match, Barcelona will already know if they remain in the competition for the knockout phase of the Champions League, as Inter will welcome Viktoria Plzeň from 6:45 p.m. and if they win, they will advance together with Bayern, and Barcelona will play in the Europa League in the spring.

Whatever happens, we have to keep this mentality. We feel confident. That’s good. If we don’t qualify, we have to continue – Xavi added.

He said that he has prepared something for the upcoming game that could improve the attack, but not disrupt the game system.

Barcelona football player Eric Garcia said that the team enters the game “as if it were the final”.

Even when we know the result of Inter, we will play to win. We have to follow the plan from the game in Munich, we have to play like we played there. The result was not good, but the game plan was – he stated.
