OGUN, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Coach Xavi of Barcelona set an unwelcome record after Barcelona’s squad was defeated 3-2 by Antwerp in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Having qualified for the last 16, and still go through as group winners, it was still an embarrassing defeat for Xavi and his men.
According to the outcome, Xavi has led Barcelona to the most Champions League losses in the shortest possible period of time.
He now has six defeats in 14 games, at a worse rate that Luis Enrique (6 in 33) and Pep Guardiola (6 in 52 games).
Barcelona go through to the last 16 but there will be concerns over just how far they can go after another disappointing result and performance.
Prior to the match, Antwerp had not managed a single point in the group, but they defeated Barcelona with three goals.
The outcome is a continuation of Girona’s loss over the weekend, and it means that Xavi is now under increasing pressure.
