Xavi was impressed with the performance of Ilkay Gundogan in the 2-0 win over Cadiz.

Gundogan was dominant in the middle of the pack, and provided the assist for Pedri’s 82nd minute strike.

The German also registered five more key passes and registered a high passing accuracy.

The 32-year-old also drew 5 fouls and won all of his 4 ground duels.

Xavi has hailed Gundogan as the cornerstone in the Barca team.

“Gundo is a cornerstone for the team. He has the Barca DNA. He never loses possession, makes the difference with the ball and always takes the right decision,” Xavi told the media after Barcelona beat Cadiz 2-0.

“We signed him to make the difference.”
