Iker Casillas was disappointed after the 1-2 which leaves Real Madrid's heard in their struggle to defend their Cup championship crown and increases the feeling that they can not with Barcelona in direct duels. For the goalkeeper, the key has been the equalizer, just back from the break and in a dead-ball situation, which is not exactly one of the strengths of Barcelona: "In the first half we achieved what we wanted but marked on a dead-ball situation, which lately seems harder to defend us ...

Casillas says not yet have a psychological problem when parties deal with the 'rival': "We have food morality but then come some games and others ... We have to play our weapons. They have one way to play and should be welcomed but we have to use our weapons. Our goal is to get through each day to compete against Barcelona and against all rivals." (via AS)
