Barcelona coach Xavi hailed his players for the ‘deserved’ win.
“No, it’s not final. We are neither more nor less champions tonight; There’s still a lot to play for. But we are very satisfied. It is time to assess what these players are doing.
The Liga form is extraordinary. We have been highly criticized at many times and today I was very proud. A lot. I repeat: it is time to assess what these players are doing.
“Sergi Roberto is one of the most underrated. At this club we don’t value things and I don’t know what else to say about Sergi. He is an example as a player and he was an example as a teammate. He has worked, stolen, arrived in the area … he always complies and for me, he is a guarantee.
The so-called use!ess Kessie just scored the winning goal for Barcelona in the El Clasico.

“This is one of the best days. But there have been worse, like Bayern’s 0-3. Today has been goosebumps. From the beginning to Kessié’s goal, who is a worker and deserves it. Enjoy it and let the people enjoy it.”
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti:
“We played a good game, we deserved to win. There remains the question of the goal that was disallowed.
