Xavi Hernández's Clásico record

Xavi Hernández's Clásico record

The Catalan coach will be involved in his 43rd Clásico and his first as coach on Wednesday against Real Madrid

Xavi Hernández is about to get his first experience of the Clásico from a managerial perspective. But having played in 42 games against Real Madrid, 38 times as a starter, he is quite an expert on the matter. In fact, only Leo Messi and Sergio Ramos, with 45 each, have played more times in the fixture.

40% win rate

Xavi’s record in those 42 Clásico matches is very impressive. The breakdown is as follows:
Wins: 17
Draws: 12
Defeats: 13


Five goals and eight assists

Total minutes: 3,451
Goals: 5
Assists: 8

First goal: 16 March 2002 at Camp Nou in La Liga
Last goal: In the 2012 Spanish Super Cup.


Iker Casillas, friend and rival

Goalkeeper Iker Casillas has always been a very close friend of Xavi’s, and that’s despite no fewer than 36 games when they have opposed themselves in the biggest rivalry in club football. As far as team-mates are concerned, Xavi played the most games alongside Leo Messi and Andrés Iniesta (29 each).
