Barcelona shared the spoils with Athletic Bilbao, as both sides played out a goalless draw on Sunday night.

Speaking after the game, Xavi hailed his side’s solid defensive showing as the only positive outcome from the game.

“The only positive [from the Athletic draw] is that we have defended well,” Xavi told the media.

Barcelona indeed put in a very solid defensive display, as Athletic Club attempted only two shots on target.

Barcelona failed to take advantage of the slip-up by Real Madrid, as the Blaugrana are 8 points behind Real Madrid and a point behind Girona who were beaten by Mallorca.
