Barca boss Xavi rues 'glaring errors' after Real Mallorca draw

Xavi Hernandez has bemoaned his side's 'glaring defensive errors' in the 2-2 draw with Real Mallorca in La Liga action on Tuesday.

Barca had to come from behind twice to salvage a point and ensure they remain unbeaten this season. Xavi was not happy with his side's performance.

"I think the problem has been that they went ahead due to our mistake, and when we were better and when we should have turned the match around before the end of the half, another mistake came, and the match became very complicated," said the Barca boss.

"They are errors that should not occur, especially in this type of tight and intense match. We have had four or five very clear chances, but the problem has been that we have conceded two glaring errors.

"We must improve in defense. Last year gave us a lot of solidity. Today we have not been bad but there are two specific errors that should not happen. Because of that we lost two points today."
