After beating Real Madrid 4-0 before the international break, Xavi Hernandez’s swift rebuilding of a side that drifted under Ronald Koeman seems to have taken it to another level.
Indeed, when Xavi returned to Camp Nou in November, few could have imagined the idea of Barca finishing second. Seemingly cut adrift mid-table and reeling from Lionel Messi’s departure, the club looked in total disarray.
Now, however, they are three points behind second-placed Sevilla with one game less. Win that and there might even be an outside chance to close in on Madrid in a title challenge.
