We will try to be leading with balloon, much more that in the 'semis' of the Bernabéu. We play against a Madrid to the that see strong. They have improved a lot physically.

The same that I do not want that they prejudice me, I do not want that they benefit me. We have not spoken of the subject of the referees neither of Negreira. We centre us in competing and be to the maximum level" affirmed.

It goes in strong, but does not go with bad faith", concluded the one of Terrassa.
