UEFA Champions League Barca Is Prepared To Die Against PSG- Xavi

Barcelona’s manager, Xavi Hernandez, stated on Monday that his team is prepared for a fight against Paris St. Germain in the second leg of their Champions League quarterfinal and that they are willing to endure hardships in order to progress.

Barca defeated PSG 3-2 in the first leg of their French match last week, but Xavi stated his team will need to play almost perfect to advance to the semifinals for the first time in five years.

“It’s going to be a major football war,” Xavi told a press conference on Monday.

“We are not a team that speculates, we will want to take the ball away from PSG and win the game.

“Hopefully we’ll be at our best. They’re going to demand a lot from us.”

Barca’s triumph in Paris was their first in the Champions League knockout round in four years, and it gave them a lot of confidence as they went on to win six straight games across all competitions.

Since their 5-3 home loss to Villarreal in La Liga in January, which precipitated Xavi’s announcement that he was quitting as manager at the conclusion of what appeared to be a challenging season, they have gone undefeated.

Now, after 13 competitive games without a loss—including a dominant display in the French capital to snap PSG’s 27-game winning streak—Tuesday’s test seemed to have come at the ideal moment.

“Happy to be where we are, proud to be where we are.

I think it’s a good moment and I’m excited. We feel it already,” Xavi said.

“We have to control our emotions, our temperament… It’s a game of heads or tails.

“We want to be in control with the ball, and we want to show the best side and personality of the team.

“We need our fans to be loud because PSG will make us suffer, there’s no doubt about it, and we have to be a team to beat them.

All of us, together.”
