Barcelona Clinches Season Finale Victory Over Sevilla, Bidding Xavi a Memorable Farewell

Xavi’s departure from Barcelona was announced on Friday, but the players ensured he left with a bang by defeating Sevilla in their final match of the season.

Barcelona wrapped up the campaign with a 2-1 win against Sevilla in LaLiga on Sunday, providing a sweet send-off for Xavi after a season without any trophies.

The team came out strong from the get-go, scoring the opening goal in the 15th minute thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s close-range finish off a Joao Cancelo cross.

Sevilla managed to equalize with Youssef En-Nesyri’s goal in the 31st minute, but they couldn’t get past Marc-Andre ter Stegen before Barca secured the victory with Fermin Lopez’s goal on the hour.

Xavi’s final game saw Barcelona already locked into second place in the league standings. His tenure as manager came to an end following a lackluster season, which included a loss in the Spanish Supercopa final to Real Madrid and a Champions League quarter-final exit at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain.

In historical context, Xavi’s record against Sevilla in LaLiga remains unblemished, having won five and drawn one of their six encounters. Fermin’s crucial goal added to his impressive tally of seven league goals in 2024, second only to Iago Aspas in Europe’s top five leagues this year.
