Fabregas: Barca must learn from defeat

27 February 2013 11:28

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.

"We have to learn from this defeat. We have to give more," Fabregas said after the match.

"We have to pick ourselves up, move forward and win on Saturday. The two most important titles are coming up and we have to move forward.

"The loss against Madrid has nothing to do with the one against Milan. They are two different competitions.

"I believe in this team. We’re a bit down but starting tomorrow we have to start working hard because we represent a very important institution."

Barcelona will have the opportunity to seek immediate revenge on Real Madrid, when they travel to the Bernabeu in La Liga on Saturday.
