Barca stuns Madrid 3-0 at Bernabeu, reaches Copa final again

"We fell with honour, the players gave everything they could, played a serious and creative game".

Some Madrid fans began leaving the Bernabeu not long after Suarez's penalty hit the net, and a few chants protesting against club president Florentino Perez also followed. The Galaticos are now third in the La Liga standings, nine points behind Barcelona. "They were better in possession, we had to stay together and counter where we could".

Former Real Madrid and Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says he believes in the capacity of Santiago Solari to manage Real Madrid, adding that that "he has been doing well since the beginning".

Out of favour midfielder Isco has missed Real Madrid's last five matches, while central defender Nacho is suspended for the visit of Barca after he was sent off for two bookable offences at Levante last time out in the league. It is hard to pick out one memorable moment, but the most resonant image is that of the player holding his jersey aloft after scoring twice in the 2016/17 Clasico, including a last-minute victor which appeared to have propelled his side back into the title race, although they ultimately fell short.

"We've won it a lot in recent years but we want to win it again".

Messi played only part of the 1-1 draw in the first leg at Camp Nou Stadium because of a right leg injury. "Winning here and reaching the final is always a cause for happiness".

"He will get better with time", Solari said of Vinicius Junior.

Karim Benzema is their top scorer so far this season with 11 goals, Gareth Bale is second with seven, whilst Ronaldo has 19 for Juventus in Serie A.

A dominant yet wasteful Real ravaged their rivals in the first half while spurning a string of clear chances at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Lionel Messi didn't have to appear at the Bernabeu. "They didn't take their chances and we have to prevent them having so many openings in the next game".

Despite running out 3-0 winners, Barcelona spent much of Wednesday's second leg on the back foot as Real Madrid spurned chance after chance.

"Saturday's match has the same importance as before and we will have to improve to win here again", Valverde said.
