Barcelona playmaker Xavi is happy with his side's current form but insists nothing can hide the fact they trail rivals Real Madrid by 10 points. The Catalans are showing grit and guile as well as trademark skill, fighting to beat Sporting Gijon 3-1 last weekend with 10 men before hammering Bayer Leverkusen 7-1 in midweek. "We are feeling good, happy with the way we are playing and enjoying our performances. But we aren't invincible - we are 10 points off the leaders in the league."
