FC Barcelona Coach Xavi Criticized Big Data Claim Celta Vigo Win

FC Barcelona coach Xavi criticized for 'we could be leaders' comment after win. Fans want results, not excuses; data supports claim.

FC Barcelona's head coach, Xavi Hernandez, has recently come under fire for a comment he made regarding Big Data following his team's 2-1 victory over Celta Vigo. The Blagurana took a 1-0 lead just before half time with a goal from Robert Lewandowski, but quickly lost their advantage when Jules Kounde deflected an Iago Aspas shot past goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen just after the start of the second half. The match concluded with a controversial 97th-minute penalty from Lewandowski, cutting Real Madrid's lead over Barcelona to seven points.

During his post-match press conference, Xavi was asked about his team's upcoming Champions League clash with Napoli. In response, he revealed that he had received data from Big Data, suggesting that they could be league leaders if they capitalized on everything they generated but lacked clairvoyance in the final third.

This statement has been met with ridicule from fans and journalists alike, with many expressing frustration with Xavi's excuses and optimistic outlook in the face of a potentially trophyless season. However, a reporter managed to track down the data Xavi referenced, revealing that Barcelona was indeed leading in expected points in La Liga, albeit by a narrow margin.

Despite the team's current standing, Xavi remains confident and optimistic about their upcoming match against Napoli. He expressed a "good feeling" about the trip to Italy and emphasized the team's positioning and defensive performance. While the future remains uncertain for Barcelona, Xavi's unwavering positivity has sparked both praise and criticism from fans and critics.
