Ahead of Sunday’s La Liga game against Alaves, Barcelona head coach Xavi Hernandez has revealed he has detected the issue with Barcelona.

Barcelona head into the game against Alaves following a poor performance in the Champions League defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Xavi said: “We want to get back to our game and recover our good sensations. If we stay true to our identity and do things the right way, the results will come. We have to push ourselves to the maximum, because this is Barça.

“The players are ready. They’re mentally prepared. This is a fantastic group. I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms and this is one of the healthiest and most united I’ve ever seen. We are highly motivated.

“We’ve detected the issue. We have to get back to positional play and be more meticulous than ever. That’s how we’ll get better.”
