At the end of the match, Xavi gave the reasons for his bloodshed. “We had to show ambition at that time,” he said at a press conference. We lost too many balls, the pressing was not high enough. We have to be self-critical because we have not been at our best level. We have to improve to be successful this season. »
In the final, Barça will meet Real Madrid, who also won on penalties from Valencia on Wednesday evening.
