Barcelona boss Rijkaard: Defeat strong blow to title hopes
"No, I am not upset as I saw plenty of good attitude from the players on the field as in the dressing room. That is not a problem. This is a defeat that hurts, but we have to digest it, look forward and continue working.
"Against a team of Real Madrid's quality, you cannot afford to concede first. Once they scored, it was always difficult for us. We tried everything to find an equaliser, but couldn't get the right pass behind their defence."
