Xavi in an interview with BarçaTV:
Physically and especially in defence, Atletico Madrid are very strong. It won’t be easy, but Neymar’s goal could prove decisive.
I feel fitter than ever. I am more excited now than when I started out, because there are more demands and it’s harder with each year.
Tata Martino is a natural leader and he communicates a lot. He gets his message across clearly and he’s easy to understand. He’s adapted really well to our philosophy and he’s a born winner.
