Barça has beaten Madrid before and can do it again!!! >> Read My Mind



Xavi: 'FC Barcelona will be as bold as ever at the Bernabeu – we don't know how to go and play for a draw and we will aim to go out and attack. We'll play with our trademark style and philosophy, exciting, spectacular and looking for a goal – the more goals you score away from home, the better!'

Xavi: 'Los Clasicos have an extra motivational factor, which means the team are really fired up from the start. They are a historic rival and it's a special ground. Real Madrid are now going toe to toe with us. They pressure us more up the pitch. Theirs is a very direct football, with players who can kill you on the break and are really fast up front'

Xavi, about the Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo hype: 'Leo will always make the difference. He's usually a decisive player and he's someone who grows with these games and likes playing in these games'

Alves: 'Clasicos are always close affairs, regardless of the teams' current form. We'll do our best to put on a good show and will try and be at our best. We'll really have to compete to take anything positive from the Bernabéu'

Alves: 'I've played a lot of these games and it's been a positive balance overall. These are games you really want to play in, they are so enjoyable. Now we are going into another game – I guess that's only normal, because when big teams are on form, they are going to come up against each other. We'll be well prepared for the game – let's see what happens'

Iniesta: 'It will be a beautiful game for the spectators and for the players, I’m sure that it will be a beautiful and intense playoff'

- Another El Clasico, another legendary battle between the best 2 teams in world football. Another chance to shine!!!

Mourinho and Casillas have played the importance of this match down. I don't buy it. Whatever the Madrid players say, they will fight to death and will leave their souls for every single loose ball. Los Blancos have lost so many Clasicos lately that they must justify themselves in front of their home fans.

I'm sure they didn't enjoy the recent 1-3. Or the 5-0 at the Camp Nou last season. Or the 2-6.

I'm pleased this Copa Del Rey playoff has a return leg at Barcelona's fortress. Getting a decent result at El Bernabeu is crucial. If we can survive the away match, our Cule fans will lift our team to victory back home.

BEATING REAL MADRID? BARÇA HAVE DONE BEFORE, BARÇA WILL DO IT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!
