After getting rid Osasuna in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey at the Reyno de Navarra, Thursday (01/12/2012), Barcelona will face Real Madrid in the quarter-finals. "Los Blancos" are considered as a major rival for Barcelona.
As quoted from the official website of FC Barcelona, Barcelona manager, Pep Guardiola, said that the game will be a great and exciting for the supporters. Although Barca often win against Madrid, Pep realized that it would face a difficult challenge when his team met Real Madrid on Wednesday (18/02/2012).
"When we fight the same class team like Real Madrid, anything can happen. Lose or win will always happen," said Barcelona coach.
Pep admitted that five-point advantage over Real Madrid will not affect anything for his team. Therefore, Barcelona will always strive to win the same as other games.
"Although they are five points ahead of us, it will not take effect for us. We are two teams both trying to win," he said.
