Barcelona head coach Xavi Hernandez admits that Real Madrid are the most in-form team in Spain ahead of their Supercopa semi-final clash on Wednesday.

Barcelona have struggled to meet up with the various competitions while Los Blancos are flying high topping LaLiga Santander table, and the newly appointed head coach feels his side has been handed a difficult task. 

“I see a Barcelona  under construction and a Real Madrid side in a very good shape, but that doesn’t mean anything,” he said at his press conference.

“We have faced them in all situations. It will not be easy to impose our game because they are the most in-form team in Spain.”

Xavi further explained that Barcelona is a work in progress, that he has seen improvement since he took over as the head coach.

“I see good things in the team. We have to be self-critical, yes, but I see good things,” he noted.

“In other aspects, we are good. We have to continue building this project. Tomorrow is a good test to know where we are.

“Players like Pedri, Ferran [Torres] and [Ronald] Araujo are important to the team and I am happy to have them back.”

The Barcelona boss believes that a win over Real Madrid could signify the turning of a corner for his side.
