Malcom: Madrid is always our hardest game of the season

Barcelona's Malcom has labelled their Copa del Rey semi final second leg as the Catalans biggest game of the season, following a 1-1 draw at the Nou Camp.

Neither side could find a late winner in the first leg, and now Real have the advantage for the second leg – through Lucas Vazquez's valuable away goal.

However, Brazilian U20 international Malcom, who netted the equaliser for Ernesto Valverde's side, is under no illusions of how big these games are.

"The match against Madrid is always the biggest of the year.

"We were calm tonight and we were able to draw the game.

"We will need to play to the same intensity in the second leg if we are to progress."
