Barcelona president Sandro Rosell insists their El Clasico Copa defeat to Real Madrid is no great setback.

Rosell insists they dominated the game and that the Copa del Rey isn't an "important title".

"We have suffered a defeat we did not expect. Congratulations to Real Madrid and now we move on to think about Saturday and other commitments ahead which are more important than the Copa, like the Champions League and the Liga.

"We played like we played around the world, but they have a deadly counterattack. We will continue playing our way because this is our style and what we like. We do not play on the counterattack, they did."
