Gerard Pique has hit back at complaints from Real Madrid ahead of their two sides’ Copa del Rey clash on Wednesday.
Pique has, of course, offered his view on the scheduling and pointed out that extra rest does not always help.
“The last time they had one day more rest than us we won 5-1,” he said.
”I know they’re looking forward to facing us. They will be really up for it, but we will do everything possible to reach the cup final.
”Then winning the league game wouldn’t decide the title -- but it would make a huge statement if we won.”
