Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid are confident in getting a result against the Catalan giants.
Ronaldo told reporters, “Barcelona is still a very difficult team. Barca is a very strong team, especially when they play at home. They are there to fight for the league title. We know they are playing at a good level and for this reason it will be an important and beautiful game. May the best team win. And the best team will be Madrid. We have one point more, we are playing away but we are going with the intention of getting a result. It is not a final because there are still many matches left.”
Cristiano also described the different playing styles of the two teams. “The two teams are very good, they are very close but with a distinct playing style. Barca use more ‘tiqui-taca’, we play more with the goal of going as far as possible as quickly as possible.”
Cristiano Ronaldo is hoping the more direct approach of Real Madrid will successfully counter the slow possession build up play from Barcelona.
