Real Madrid star says Los Blancos ‘adapted’ to face Catalans, in Copa de Rey win.
Cristiano Ronaldo delivered a veiled criticism of Barcelona after Tuesday night’s El Clasico, stating the Catalans ‘always have the same philosophy’.
The Portuguese superstar was spreaking after Tuesday night’s Copa del Rey semi-final, in which Real beat Barcelona 3-1 at the Nou Camp to progress to the final 4-2 on aggregate.
Ronaldo stole the show with Los Blancos’ opening two goals on a night where Lionel Messi was again anonymous for the hosts.
Ronaldo also warned next month’s Champions League opponent’s Manchester United that Real had gained ‘self belief’ from the El Clasico victory, ahead of the last-16 second-leg trip to Old Trafford.
