Pepe talks about Varane, Real Madrid in the Copa & Clasico
Real Madrid prepare for a tough week with the Copa del Rey semifinal against Barcelona tonight. Jose Mourinho is hoping for his team to put up a show against the Catalans to at least have a chance of winning one domestic trophy after a devastating La Liga campaign this season.
He was asked about the prospects of his fellow central defender Raphael Varane, upcoming El Clasico and what will they have to do to beat their rival and finally the chances of the other two semifinalists – Atletico Madrid and Sevilla – of going through to the final.
Messi has played 23 games against Real and he has scored 17 goals while his Portuguese counterpart, Cristiano Ronaldo, has scored seven goals in his last seven Clasicos. Barcelona and Real Madrid are meeting for the 224th time tonight.
