Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez has claimed his Barcelona side were the better team during their 1-0 victory over Real Madrid.

Speaking to Diario AS, Xavi Hernandez said: “Content. We have felt good. The least important thing is winning, but we Cules love beating Real Madrid. The first half was excellent, the second less good. The team looks good physically.”

“I saw a good Barca, but we have to be more reliable [in the box]. We were better than Real Madrid. I am satisfied, beyond the result.

“I even managed to enjoy it on the bench. We are creating a great amount of excitement amongst Cules. For us it is an important victory.”
