Xavi has seemingly wasted no time at all in getting to work at Barcelona and was spotted catching the B team in action on Saturday night.

The club legend arrived back in Barcelona on Saturday morning from Qatar and while he couldn’t watch the first team in person he was able to watch the youngsters.

Xavi is likely to have been impressed by what he saw as well with Barca B running out convincing winners against bottom of the table Sevilla Atletico.

Highly-rated 17-year-old Ilias Akhomach scored twice, while there were also goals from Ángel Rodado and Ferran Jutgla.

The game also saw Peque make his return to action after two months out injured, and there was also a debut for Kays Ruiz after his return to the club in the summer from PSG.

Barca B have now gone five games without defeat which has moved the team into fourth place on 19 points after 11 games.
