He has a very difficult task in front of him to save Barcelona. Will Xavi succeed in snatching the qualifying ticket from “Allianz hell”?

On Tuesday night, with the return of the most prestigious European Championship nights after the international break, Barcelona became in an embarrassing situation, after its match against Benfica ended in a goalless draw, in the second match of Xavi Hernandez as Barcelona coach, and the first for the Spanish coach in the European Championship.

Despite Barcelona’s good performance in the Benfica match, the team still faces the same big problem, which is not taking advantage of opportunities and scoring from them. Barcelona presented a very acceptable match given the team’s current conditions, but they were not lucky to score.

While Bayern Munich leads this group with 15 points, ensuring its qualification to the next round, the difference between Barcelona, ​​who is second with seven points, and Benfica, who is third with five points, is only two points, in the fifth round of the group stage.

Barcelona needed to win against Benfica in order to ensure the team’s promotion to the playoffs of the Champions League, but after the match ended in a draw, the Catalan club became in a difficult position, and the team’s last chance now to qualify is to beat Bayern Munich on its home ground in the last round. From the group stage, or there is another option to qualify, which is unlikely and difficult to happen, for Benfica to lose their last match against Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv, bottom of the group.

But seeing Barcelona’s performance against Benfica suggests that the team has motivation, enthusiasm and a desire to win, despite the loss of many opportunities in the match by the Catalan team. Xavi’s men did not show signs of despair and surrender, unlike what we were watching with former Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman.

Team players fight until the last breath of the match, even if they can’t score. This is something that counts for coach Xavi, and we saw this in the coach’s first match in the Spanish League against Espanyol in the Catalan derby, which ended with Barcelona winning 1-0, where Barcelona showed a strong personality in the match, an enthusiastic start and great control, except for the last 20 minutes of the match. The team retreated a lot, and Espanyol almost scored a draw, had it not been for luck standing next to Barcelona.

However, we witnessed that enthusiastic start a lot in the team with each new coach appearing in his first matches, after which the team returns to its low level and the weak spirit of the players again. But it may be different this time for several reasons, which is that the coach this time is the legend of the club, an example, and a reference to many of the young players in the team.

This may be a reason for the team players to try to give everything under the leadership of coach Xavi, with the presence of distinguished young players such as Pablo Jaffe, Fati, Nico Gonzalez, Ronald Araujo and the golden boy Pedri Gonzalez, and other promising players, this team can do a lot and start a new era.

Xavi has many difficult tasks in front of him, including trying to improve the teams in terms of the final touch in the attacks, and certainly with the return of Ansu Fati from injury, the attack will improve a lot.

Xavi’s next challenge is for the team to prepare physically, psychologically and mentally for the last round of the Champions League match against Bayern in two weeks, in a very difficult, but not impossible, task. We will see how Xavi will attend that match through the Spanish League matches in the coming period.

Will Barcelona achieve the difficult task and win its terrifying nightmare in recent years, Bayern Munich, on its own stadium, or will it enter surrendering and waiting to hear the happy news from Portugal of Benfica’s stumble against Dynamo Kiev?

The most important question remains: Will we witness a resounding surprise and see Barcelona outside the Champions League for the first time in 22 years, in the tragedy of 1999, or will the Catalan club get rid of that nightmare that has been chasing it since the beginning of the season and pass to the next round as if nothing had happened?
