Manchester United vs Real Madrid: White euphoria

FC Barcelona had lost only three games in all season. Against Real Madrid in the Super Cup, Real Sociedad in the Spanish League and against AC Milan in the Champions League. Now the Real Madrid has defeated them two times in five days. One, on Tuesday, was to reach the final of the Spanish Cup. Yesterday's match may have less importance, because of the gap points the Catalans have in the league table. But should be viewed in perspective, Mourinho fielded seven replacement players. Playing against Messi's Barcelona without Cristiano Ronaldo was to make concessions. Old Trafford prevailed.

This brace against Barcelona will have a major impact on the morale and confidence for the decisive match at Old Trafford. White players have been loaded of reasons and are able to continue this winning momentum. They are cautious when talk about Ferguson's team but there is obviously euphoria in the squad. The euphoria is not bad if you know how to manage. It is necessary to believe in the high challenges. And Manchester United is the highest challenge so far.

This Real Madrid arrives strengthened to Manchester. White team will attend the match with the disadvantage of the double value goal of the English team. But after winning at Camp Nou, after playing with the same result as that achieved against the Red Devils at the Bernabeu, it is confirmed that the approach and attitude of Mourinho and the players is good to extend this winning streak. The doubts and pessimism have become safety and self-esteem.

The players talked openly yesterday about the possibilities of defeating Manchester United. Pepe said: "We are going through a good streak. We have shown that we are a group and we fight until the end. We have got two important consecutive wins, both because of how we played and because of who they came against, which is a great motivation for the match against Manchester United. We are happy and now we must think about resting for Tuesday's match". Pepe also said: "We are going into it at the best time. Except for Casillas, everyone is available and the coach has a lot of good players on the bench. Which has been shown today".

Alvaro Morata talked to the media, showing how the squad feels ahead of the clash against Manchester United: “It’s a playoff that we have to win no matter what, we’re doing well but we have to stay that way. We’re working really hard and this win has given us a boost of confidence for Tuesday’s match. We have to give our all there and come out to win; I’m sure that if we play like we have the last few matches we’ll achieve something important. We’re going to have a complicated match against one of the most difficult sides in the world”.

Sergio Ramos spoke of the desire that is in the Real Madrid squad to put the perfect final on this good run: "After the two Classics we’re going to Manchester believing that we can win, with all due respect to the opponents, who are a great team. It is a very special competition for Real Madrid fans".
