Xavi named a much-changed side from Barcelona’s 5-1 win over Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League. The coach highlighted that he would be making changes in the side throughout the season as there are always chances of suspensions and injuries.
“It’s a good win at a difficult place to come. It keeps us up there at the top of the league,” said Xavi. “Whoever plays, there’s no drop off, we’re in a good place and I’m happy with the result.
“The main thing was getting the first goal. We were patient but we just lacked that final ball, but in general I’m happy with what I saw. We’re going to be making changes in the side throughout the season as we need to control minutes, there’ll be suspensions and injuries too.”
After half-time, Barcelona didn’t wait much to get the breakthrough. Frenkie de Jong fired into an open goal after Cadiz keeper Jeremias Ledesma deflected a Gavi cross into the path of midfielder de Jong in the 55th minute.
Lewandowski then came on as a substitute and carried his fine fine. The Polish striker netted one after 10 minutes to put Barcelona in command. There was a half-hour stoppage to treat an ill fan before the resumption of the match. Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele piled up miseries on Cadiz before the final whistle.
