Xavi expects good finish
Xavi is adamant that Barcelona can still enjoy a great end to the campaign despite Saturday's 2-1 El Clasico defeat to Real Madrid.
The Spain international playmaker was disappointed with the Nou Camp reverse, which has left the Catalan giants seven points adrift of Jose Mourinho's side with only four games remaining.
However, with the midweek Champions League semi-final second leg against Chelsea - which they trail 1-0 - and the Copa del Rey to come, Xavi believes that the season can end in success.
"This is not a delicate moment, but one filled with hope," Xavi told reporters at a press conference. "We have in our hands the possibility of having a great season.
"We may have lost the Liga title, but we have won three titles this season. We also still have the Copa del Rey final and there is the possibility that we can reach the Champions League final
"We are competitive, but this team also knows how to lose. That is the way we are.
"We did not have a bad match against Madrid, but we were not excellent either. We could not take advantage of the chances we created."
