Raphinha believes Barcelona are a better side than Real Madrid

Brazilian star Raphinha blows fire on Real Madrid. Just before the El Clasico, former Leeds star has said that his team is better than Real Madrid.


Brazilian star Raphinha, who has just joined FC Barcelona from Leeds, has already fueled the Biggest sporting rivalry on Earth. Just before the El Clasico, a former Leeds player has cleared his intentions.

After the match against Inter Miami, ‘one always tries to score against anyone, but if it’s in a Clasico, even more. The most important thing is the win. But for me, we’re better than Real Madrid,’ as reported by Goal.com. He further added, ‘Barcelona has several young talented players. They are doing a great job with them. They are always fighting for championships.’ he said in the post-match interview.

Barcelona has added a lot of star players during this summer transfer; the young Brazilian star is also one of them. In addition, they have signed the Bayern star Robert Lewandowski. With the addition of these players, the Barcelona side is looking more formidable. Under the guidance of Xavi, the Spanish giant would be looking to improve its results compared to last season. 

Last season Barcelona failed to qualify for the champions league knock-out and also did not perform well, initially in LaLiga. However, when Xavi took the control of the Spanish side they gave an unexpected performance. Moreover, they went on to crush their greatest rival by 4-0.

Spanish giants will face each other on Sunday, 24 July for club friendlies. The match will also mark their second meet in the USA. It will be interesting to see whether Raphinha stands correct on his words or be it Los Blancos who will avenge their last defeat against Barcelona.
