Barcelona coach Xavi: Unexpected Eintracht Frankfurt away support didn't help us

Barcelona coach Xavi says the presence of so many Eintracht Frankfurt fans inside the Nou Camp last night made a difference.

Over 30,000 away fans found a way into the stadium and roared on the visitors as they knocked Barcelona out of the Europa League.

Xavi said, “Obviously it didn't help us, we were expecting 70,000 or 80,000 fans.

"But then, it looked like a final. It was a miscalculation on our part, yes.

"The club will check what happened."
