Just five days to go before the Camp Nou hosts the game of the year! Yes, it’s nearly Clásico time (Saturday 4.15pm CET) but before that Barça have a Copa del Rey round of 32 game against Hércules (Wednesday 10.00pm CET).
Spirits could be better after the 1-1 draw at Real Sociedad on Sunday, which has prolonged a decade of disappointments at Anoeta, and that was naturally one of the topics of conversation touched on by Sergi Roberto in an interview with the club media.
“It wasn’t the result we wanted” he says in reference to that match. “We wanted to end our negative run there. But at the end of the day, we have to look on a draw as a good result.”
Turning to the pending visit of Real Madrid, he adds that “we are all looking forward to the Clásico. It’s the kind of game that any player would be motivated about. In can't wait and I hope things work out well for us”
