Barcelona midfielder Xavi claimed a draw would have been a fairer reflection of the match after Sunday´s 1-0 defeat at home to Real Madrid.

Lacking injured playmaker Lionel Messi, Barcelona struggled to break through the Real defence and they found chances to net an equaliser few and far between. Nevertheless, Xavi said: "We are saddened by the result. We think it would have more fair to have been a draw.

"Neither of the two teams have had a good game. We have not made the most of any of the chances we have had. We have not been comfortable. They have worked hard physically, and we have had a lot of problems creating chances."
