Thank you very much for your answer. I tried that already but could not manage since  -rvpplot- and -rvfplot- do not work with -xtreg-.
To do this, i suppose i have to use the -graph twoway- command together with residuals and predicted values. 
I got the fitted by:

. predict conshat
(option xb assumed; fitted values)

but how can i get the residuals?

. predict consres, residuals
option residuals not allowed

Thank you!
