Cesc: Barca must learn from this

Cesc Fabregas has urged his Barcelona teammates to lift themselves for the weekend and to learn from their Clasico mistakes.

The Catalans were hit for a 3-1 defeat at the Camp Nou on Tuesday, to lose their Copa del Rey semi-final against Real Madrid 4-2 on aggregate.

We have to give more, we have to pick ourselves up, move forward and win on Saturday.

“Madrid hurt us on the counter and that’s their specialty. Clearly the second goal they scored left us crippled, we had to get three goals.

“But, the two most important titles to fight for are coming up and we have to learn from this and move forward.

“This game has nothing to do with the one against Milan, they are two different competitions. I believe in this team.

“We’re a bit down but starting tomorrow we have to start working hard because we represent a very important institution.

“I’m very thankful to the fans, they never stopped cheering us on.”
