Andres Iniesta: We can win the Clasico war


Barcelona star Andres Iniesta believes that his side can win “the war” against Real Madrid on Sunday to narrow the gap in the La Liga title race.

Los Cules lie four points behind leaders Real, but looked to be back near to their superb best after scoring seven without reply against Osasuna.

And a win at the Bernabeu would mean Real go into the last ten games of the season only a point in front.

In an interview with Spanish daily SPORT, Iniesta said “Now comes the most difficult game of the season but also the most beautiful one.

“The Madrid-Barca game is a war of football, but what has happened in the past has stayed there. We want to get a good feeling at the Bernabeu and we believe that we can win there.”

“It has not been a comfortable season. At all levels, there are changes to be made – it has been difficult.”

Iniesta and his wife lost a child, and he thanked Real Madrid players for their support.

“I have received expressions of affection from the players of Real Madrid; there are more important things than a football game. My wife and my family appreciate all the love of these people.”
