Xavi Hernandez dismisses claims over Barcelona-Deportivo La Coruna draw

Xavi Hernandez has rubbished allegations that Barcelona eased off to allow Deportivo La Coruna to get the point they needed to escape relegation in the final game of the season.

At that point, Deportivo looked sure to be relegated -- but goals from Lucas Perez and Diogo Salomao salvaged a crucial 2-2 draw for the Galicians.

Captain Alberto Lopo subsequently said that,...
