Xavi Hernandez (FC Barcelona coach, after the 2-1 defeat against Real Madrid): “It's a shame, because we started well. The key to the game is efficiency. I think Madrid's victory today is unfair. They are much more efficient than us, that's the big difference. We played well, but that's football when you're not effective. (On Bellingham's goal) The action at the end is unfortunate. It was a bouncing ball, Modric couldn't control it and it fell to Bellingham.
He's a great player, he made the difference today. I think we deserved a lot more. (How to explain the drop in speed after the equalizer) They pressed high, they won more second balls, there was fatigue too, a lot of things. The summary is simple, 60 very good minutes where we scored a goal, 25 minutes for Madrid and they scored two. (comments collected at a press conference)
