Xavi: Real Madrid are victims of Barcelona success

Barcelona midfielder Xavi successfully maneuvered invitations from the media yesterday to taunt Real Madrid ahead of the El Clasico. Xavi refused to compare the two clubs when asked, only saying: "They have a different philosophy, though I prefer ours."

Later, however, he did declare: "Now, Madrid are the victims of our play and our success. They have had to spend a lot of money after our triumphs. For now, they are doing well because they're above us on the table.

"We have to have a great respect for Madrid, because they're a very difficult team to beat. And the 2-6 is history."
