Barcelona defeats Sevilla and wins, extending their lead atop the La Liga standings to eight points.

Xavi probably had visions of the old Barcelona tiki-taka passing, with his own midfield presence directing play.

By throwing the ball towards the penalty area, Xavi changed his team's strategy, swallowing his ego and requesting that his players be more incisive.

Barcelona easily defeated Sevilla in the second half by winning 3-0 to extend their lead over them in the La Liga standings to eight points.

Barcelona took advantage of the opportunity created by Real Madrid's mistake earlier in the day to extend their lead.

They were desperately trying to come up with an attacking plan, but there wasn't one, as Jorge Sampaoli once sent Ivan Rakitic up front as a False 9.
