Xavi: We must move on from Celtic defeat

Xavi says Barcelona must move on from the 2-1 defeat at Celtic and concentrate on Spartak Moscow without dwelling on the surprise result.

The Blaugrana were beaten by the Scottish champions at Celtic Park on Wednesday night, and the Spain international believes they must get the loss out of their system and focus on their trip to Russia on Nov. 20.

“The important game now is when we go to Moscow,” Xavi told reporters. “You have to be top of the group. We missed the opportunity to do that [against Celtic], but we depend on ourselves. We have to go and seek victory in the two remaining games.”

Following the clash with Spartak, Tito Vilanova’s side hosts Benfica at Camp Nou on Dec. 5. Despite the defeat in Scotland, Barcelona remains atop the Group G table with nine points, two more than Celtic, five clear of Benfica and six ahead of Spartak.
