UEFA Champions League UCL: Xavi Satisfied With Draw Against Napoli

Barcelona’s manager, Xavi Hernandez, expressed his satisfaction with the point his team earned from Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Napoli in the Champions League last-16, but he couldn’t shake the conviction that the first leg game should have been won.

After Robert Lewandowski scored the game’s first goal in the sixtyth minute, Barca missed multiple chances to extend their lead and were caught off guard when Victor Osimhen equalised from Napoli’s lone on target fifteen minutes later.

On March 12, Barcelona will play host to Napoli, the Serie A winners from the previous season.
