Barça win final game under Xavi

2024/05/26 22:24

Xavi's stint as Barcelona ended with a victory as the Catalan side won away to Sevilla.

Barça were already guaranteed to finish second place going into this game with the club already looking to the 2024/25 season with Hansi Flick reportedly close to taking over as manager.

It took just 15 minutes for Barcelona to open the scoring at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. Robert Lewandowski latched on to the end of João Cancelo's ball to make it 1-0 with the Polish striker's 26th goal of the season.

Quique Sánchez Flores' side equalised with just over a half hour gone as Boubakary Soumaré played a throughball that Youssef En-Nesyri latched on to and diverted past Marc ter Stegen from a tight angle.

Both sides had great opportunities to go into half-time in the lead with Dodi Lukebakio having a headed effort bounce off the post. Then just a few minutes later it was the visitors who hit the post through Cancelo.

Shortly after that Lukebakio had another great chance for Sevilla on the break but his effort went just wide of the target.

The winning goal eventually came in the 59th minute when Fermín López had an effort from the outside of the box that caught Orjan Nyland out at the near post.

That win means that Xavi ends his Barcelona managerial stint with a win and a final record of 90 wins, 24 draws, and 29 defeats in 143 games.

As a football fan, I am grateful for Xavi's successful last game as Barcelona's manager. Despite already securing second place and looking towards the future, the team showed determination and scored early on. Excited for the upcoming season with Hansi Flick potentially taking over!

As a Barça fan, I am thrilled to see Xavi's time at the club end on a high note with a win against Sevilla. It's disappointing to finish second, but I'm excited for the future with Hansi Flick reportedly taking over as manager. Great game from Lewandowski and Cancelo, but we need to tighten up our defense.
