The two league victories of the Barça with which the ‘It was Xavi Hernández’, Espanyol 1-0 and Villarreal 1-3 have allowed them to add 23 points. Although he is still far from the head, 7th, he does approach several of the teams that were ahead. It is the case of the Real society (3rd with 29 and one more game), which from having 11 points of advantage has gone to 6 when drawing 0-0 against Valencia and falling 1-0 against Espanyol. There are also 5 points trimmed to Seville (27), which before landing Xavi was 10 above and now has 5 because he drew 2-2 with Alavés and fell against Madrid (2-1).
However, the two great rivals for the title have maintained their wide differences of 10 points, in the case of Real Madrid, leader with 33 after winning 1-4 in Granada and 2-1 at Sevilla, and 6 points in the case of Athletic (2nd with 29), who did not fail even against Osasuna (1-0) and Cádiz (1-4). They are also ahead the Betis (5th with 27 and one more game) and the Lightning (6th with 24 and one more game).
Xavi Hernandez gave two days of celebration to a squad that, after yesterday’s recovery training (more intense for those who did not play on Saturday), will rest Monday and Tuesday. The players will return to work on Wednesday at 11 a.m. to prepare for Barça-Betis on Saturday, December 4 at 4.15 p.m. at the Camp Nou
