Barcelona defeated Real Betis 5-0 on Saturday, in what was a five star performance from Xavi’s side.

Barca boss Xavi Hernandez, has insisted that nothing has changed about his side’s style  of play. However, he also admitted that the team’s style has improved drastically due to the experience of new signing Joao Cancelo.

The Portuguese has brought life to the right side, as he even covers central areas, giving the Blaugrana numerical superiority in the midfield – while still bombarding the right flank in a Dani Alves manner.

“We attack the same way. It hasn’t changed. What has changed is the names. The profile changes, but our way of attacking is the same,” Xavi told the media ahead of the Antwerp clash.

“But Cancelo has his individual qualities, he understands it.”
