Barragan: Betis can beat Madrid again

Real Betis defender Antonio Barragan has reiterated the side are hopeful of three points at home to Real Madrid on Sunday.

Los Verdiblancos stunned the Spanish champions with a 1-0 victory in Madrid earlier in the season, and a win could take them into a European position.

“We feel good, we are working hard and we are confident going into every game,” Barragan told Betis club media.

“We work on each individual game at a time and the next ne is a big one, upon which we are fully focused but equally we are ambitious in that we want to win every game.

“They played very well (against PSG) which will boost their confidence and self-esteem but we are hoping to take advantage of any weaknesses.

“They will be aiming to win as they are a great team with great players but we can only focus on ourselves, what our objectives are and work on carrying them out.

“We enjoyed a fantastic win at the Bernabeu earlier in the season and that is a good reference for us, and we will aim for a similar performance this time around.

“We must try to press high and enjoy possession.”
