Forget the result during Barcelona versus PSG for a moment.
An exceptional stat was record in the Nou Camp in the Champions League quarterfinal, as Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez recorded a perfect record in his passing game.
Xavi’s perfect game was full of action.
The Spaniard made 92 out of 92 passes, although none of Xavi’s completions created key goal scoring opportunities for the Blaugrana.
Yet despite that mini drawback, Xavi’s 100% pass completion rate, in such a massive match, placed him on a pedestal. And rightly so.
Below is graphic & a Tweet for stat gurus Opta confirming just what an incredible achievement Xavi completed against the Parisians.
100% – Xavi attempted and completed 96 passes tonight, a record since Opta started analysing the Champions League. Perfection.
