Xavi becomes a living legend.

The Barcelona derby was another step forward for FC Barcelona in their effort to secure the La Liga title, but it was particularly memorable for Xavi Hernández, the Barça midfielder having made his 500th league appearance.

Xavi played his 500th match in the top tier of Spanish football and joined a select group of La Liga legends in the process. He is only the eighth player to have reached this important milestone.

What's more, Xavi played his 31st Barcelona derby, no other player in the history of the Spanish league has participated in more matches of this kind. Xavi has truly left his mark on the game.
