Real Madrid were beaten 3-0 by Barcelona in the pre-season El Clasico, showing their weakest and strongest points.
But, this match is not very important for Dani Carvajal who has said that in the official matches they will defeat their biggest rival in La Liga.
“In the official matches we will trample Barcelona”, the defender said after the match to ESPN.
“It’s never good to lose against Barcelona, but it was just a friendly. When it comes time for the real games, we will be better than them, I’m 100 percent sure,” added the Whites veteran.
From ‘El Clasico is never a friendly’ (said by Carlo Ancelotti and Vinicius Junior before the match) to ‘it was just a friendly’, Real Madrid’s narrative seems to change depending on the situation.
All in all, that’s a pretty strange thing to say after losing the league title to eternal rivals by a point difference.
The Whites probably deserved better, but the Catalans were clinical enough to secure a big win.
