Real Madrid crashed out of the Copa Del Rey after last night’s 3-0 loss at the hands of Barcelona. Luis Suarez scored twice and Raphel Varane netted in an own goal sent Barcelona into the final of Copa Del Rey for sixth successive time.
Los Blancos were left to rue missed chances in the first half as they were punished later in the match. Barcelona goalie, Marc Andre Ter Stegen, came to the rescue numerous times as Los Blancos forwards Benzema and Vinicius Junior missed crucial chances due to their inefficiency in the final third.
Despite missing their former talisman, the Brazilian defensive midfielder believes that they should not talk about Cristiano as he is not here with the team.
“We can’t talk about who isn’t here,” Casemiro said when asked about Cristiano as quoted by Marca. Cristiano isn’t here but a week ago, Karim [Benzema] was the best No.9 in the world. Now we have to fight for who we are. We didn’t score but we worked hard, fought a lot and created many chances. But if you don’t take those opportunities then the opposition can hurt you a lot and that’s what happened.”, the Los Blancos star added.
Los Blancos will get a chance to avenge the defeat as they host Barcelona again this weekend but in the La Liga.
