Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane says his side can beat anyone when they play like they did in their 3-1 Copa del Rey win at Barcelona.Real sealed a place in the final of the cup competition by overcoming the Catalans in Tuesday's second leg, and the French youngster is delighted with his side's performance.
Cesc Fabregas says that Barcelona must learn from their 3-1 Copa del Rey defeat against arch-rivals Real Madrid on Tuesday evening.The Catalans recorded a favourable 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg of the semi-final tie against Madrid, but they were brushed aside in the return fixture, with two Cristiano Ronaldo goals and a Raphael Varane header meaning Jordi Alba's late goal was nothing more than a consolation.
Stand-in Barcelona coach Jordi Roura admitted Real Madrid were far superior in their 3-1 victory in the Copa del Rey clash on Tuesday.An early goal from Cristiano Ronaldo set the tone before the Portuguese attacker doubled the lead in the second half, and Raphael Varane's header ensured that Jordi Alba's late effort meant nothing as the Blancos went through to face Sevilla or Atletico Madrid in the Spanish cup final.
Cristiano Ronaldo has branded Real Madrid's performance in the 3-1 Copa del Rey victory over Barcelona on Tuesday evening as 'perfect'.Jose Mourinho's men entered the match at Camp Nou having earned a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Santiago Bernabeu, and a double from the former Manchester United man, followed by a header from Raphael Varane helped los Blancos on their way to a memorable win against their Clasico rivals.
Real Madrid stormed into the Copa Del Rey final with an emphatic 3-1 victory over Barcelona in the second leg of their semi-final on Tuesday.With a 1-1 home draw to overcome from the first leg, Jose Mourinho looked on in jubilation as his team executed their gameplan to perfection, frustrating the Catalans at the back, and through an inspirational Cristiano Ronaldo, giving a counterattacking clinic up front.
Barcelona assistant coach Jordi Roura has slammed referee Alberto Undiano Mallecano ahead of their Copa del Rey clash with Real Madrid.Mallecano took charge of Barcelona's only La Liga defeat this season at Real Sociedad, and will officiate again for the semi-final second leg at Camp Nou on Tuesday.
Cesc Fabregas says Barcelona will have to be on top of their game when they face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Copa del Rey clash.The Catalans recorded a 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg, and Fabregas is aware that Real will pose a stern test in Tuesday's return fixture, particularly given his side's laboured form in recent weeks.
Real Madrid defender Pepe has tipped team-mate Raphael Varane to become one of the best centre-backs in world football.The French youngster has garnered widespread acclaim, having produced a series of accomplished displays at the heart of Real's defence in 2013.
