Pinto: "Before the first clásicos it is the game against Betis"

Pinto avoided talking about the clásico next week.

Despite having only one branch with both Barca yesterday Sergi Roberto scored his third goal in as many games with the first team. "It's easier to mark, because the players have great quality, but the important thing was to win," Reus said. On the quarterfinal match against arch-rivals, the squad is confident of victory. "The Barça-Madrid are always very close, but hopefully win, as in recent games." Nor did he forget his friend Fontàs: "It was the worst news."

For his part, Captain Pinto yesterday declined to refer to the knockout quarter and said that "we must think about Sunday's game against Betis. The other will come."

Another homegrown players who played last night from the owner, Martin Montoya, admitted that "in the first part we left a little to see them come, but in the second we had more options with the ball played out." Also showed their support for injured Andreu Fontàs. "It was a shame, because he is a player we have a lot of love". (via MD)
