Despite the victory, Xavi described the side's performance as being too slow and tedious for his liking, Goal reported.

“I have to be very honest, we were not good at all. We need to minimise our poor matches like these ones," he said.

Xavi admitted that the team had played better for much of the season, but needed to work on these poor games if they were to challenge on multiple fronts this season.

Barcelona are still in the UEFA Europa League and have a date with Manchester United next in that competition.

They are also in the running for the Copa del Rey glory. Barca's next game in the competition is against Real Sociedad in the quarter-finals of the cup on Wednesday, January 25.

Having already wrapped up the Spanish Supercopa title, Xavi will be looking to bring more trophies back to Camp Nou.
