LaLiga: Why Barcelona lost 3-2 to Real Madrid – Xavi

Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has said his team’s mistakes cost them in the 3-2 defeat to Real Madrid on Sunday.

Xavi’s men took an early lead through Andreas Christensen’s header, before Vinicius Jr made it 1-1 from the penalty spot.

Barça took the lead again with 20 minutes left through substitute Fermín López.

Vázquez drew Madrid level for a second time, before Jude Bellingham’s late winner opened an 11-point gap between the two LaLiga rivals.

“I am proud of the team, especially in the second half,” Xavi said.

“We tried. We were good, but mistakes have cost us the defeat.

“Normally, based on how the game went, we win. We deserved the victory. We created more and defended well. We controlled the game.”
