Pepe: Win gives us great hope

Real Madrid centre-back Pepe has admitted that his side's 2-1 win over Barcelona gives them 'great hope' for the match with Manchester United.

Los Blancos defeated their bitter Catalan rivals yesterday in La Liga, and now must prepare for a Champions League last 16 tie with the Premier League side.

And the Portuguese defender has claimed that their superiority in El Clasico shows what they are capable of.

“We are on a very good run,” he told Canal Plus. “The victory makes us happy because it was important to win.

“It gives us great hope for Tuesday's match now. We have to try and win the game in Manchester.”
