El Clasico head-to-head record

Here, we take a look at all the records of this classic encounter between the two Spanish giants.

Carlo Ancelotti vs Xavi head to head

Xavi finds himself battling against Ancelotti in the dugout following his return to Barcelona in 2021, with Ancelotti making his own La Liga comeback in the same year.

As a player, Xavi faced Ancelotti teams three times in his early career as the fulcrum of Barcelona’s midfield against AC Milan. They met again as Ancelotti moved on to Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

Xavi lost just one of his four La Liga meetings with Ancelotti during the Italian’s first spell in Madrid from 2013 to 2015, but he was on losing side in the 2014 Copa del Rey final — the last time Los Blancos won the trophy.

It finished one La Liga win each as they faced off as rival coaches for the first time in 2021/22, but Ancelotti sealed the title. Madrid beat Barca in the Supercopa de Espana final last season, but Xavi turned the tables in the 2023 final.
