Guardiola: 'Barça need the Camp Nou to defeat Real Madrid' >> includes FC Barcelona Video

Pep Guardiola: 'Real Madrid were better than us on Sunday, but in the last three days FC Barcelona has improved'

Guardiola: 'They were better than us, but in three days we’ve improved a bit. There's no question that we must play a great game to take the title. We'll see how they are and whether we’ll start the same players or make changes. We’re managing the minutes and the players' fitness levels'

Guardiola: 'I believe in the mentality and competitive spirit of this team to try to win the title. When the legs begin to fail, the fans will help us, I can’t remember a stadium against Madrid with not so many fans. We thank the people who support us'

- I am sad to say that I couldn't get a ticket for tonight's Barça-Madrid Supercopa match: The Socis (ticket holders) get a discount that is simply not available for me, and the cheapest ticket I could find was nearly 100euros (which I can't afford this time!)

Anyway, I have over 100,000 friends of mine who will turn the Camp Nou into an unbreakable fortress where BLAU and GRANA drive our warriors forward. Yes, the Supercopa is the least important title of the season but the excitement of defeating Real Madrid can NOT be beaten.
