Barcelona coach Jordi Roura denies they're in crisis going into the El Clasico at Real Madrid.

Barca have suffered defeats to Real in the Copa and AC Milan in the Champions League, with Lionel Messi failing to fire.

Roura said: “When you have the best player in the world in your team, of course you notice when he doesn’t score.

"But for Leo not to score in a couple of matches is an anecdote. We have total and absolute confidence in him.”
