Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona

Post game quotes:

Real Madrid Assistant Manager Karanka:

“We work hard every day and these two matches have gone like they have. This shows that work is worth it. There was talk that the league could have be finished this week and it would be complete disaster, but what we are bothered about is working hard every day. Now we will move on with more motivation and, if possible, with a lot more desire. This makes us stronger”.

“We work hard so that the team is the best that it can be. What we do is not going to change. Sometimes things do not go as you want and are now they are going really well. It makes us stronger and helps us believe even more in the hard work we’re putting in”.

“It is clear that the past five days and these wins make us happy. But football has these things. Today we are happy and if we’d had believed that we’d done something extraordinary on Tuesday we could have regretted it today. Now we have to train, prepare for the match against Manchester United and keep going as we are”.

Jordi Roura – Barcelona interim coach:

“We had our chances to win points at the Bernabéu”. “It was a very complicated match. It’s always difficult here. The team worked hard and we had our chances,”

“it was a very complicated match. The team worked hard and we had out chances. It’s obvious, however, that the result is what counts.”

Along the same lines, he said, “we’ve had a couple of hard weeks with a lot of very intense matches with few days to rest. But I don’t think we have a physical problem. Despite the result, we had our chances to win points.”
