Xavi claimed that ‘the best team won’ as Barcelona beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the first Clasico of the season.

Goals from Neymar and Alexis Sanchez helped the Blaugrana beat their bitter rivals at Camp Nou on Saturday.

“We witnessed a great match and the best team won,” he told the club’s official website.

“Alexis is a great player, very important for us, and I have a lot of confidence in him. This goal will give him a lot of confidence.

“A six-point advantage is significant, we’re still undefeated and that’s important.

“We played better than Madrid. We weren’t brilliant but we saw a good Barça and they also played well. We can improve.”
