Rafa Márquez: "Barça might have an advantage in morale"

The former FC Barcelona visited the training ground on Friday, and spoke about the upcoming edition of El Clásico

Friday's training session for the FC Barcelona first team was watched over by a special guest, as Rafa Márquez took in the preparations for El Clásico.

Speaking ahead of this Sunday's big game, he gave his views on the LaLiga encounter. "Barça are in good form and might have a slight advantage in morale, but this is a different game to any other. The team's form doesn't count too much, because everything changes."

"They aren't having good results at the moment, but Real Madrid always fight. It's a different game, played with another mentality, and it will never be easy. Madrid are still Madrid."

Márquez has also played in Clásicos alongside Leo Messi, who will miss this weekend's encounter through injury.

"It's different without Messi, but against Inter the team showed that they have a lot of quality.. There are great players and they won without him," the Mexico legend concluded.
