Barcelona players were unimpressed by Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas predicting the scoreline for their upcoming clash. In a promotion yesterday, Casillas, along with tennis star Rafael Nadal, backed Real to beat Barca - with the former predicting a "1-0" scoreline.

Barca fullback Daniel Alves immediately hit back last night, warning: "Anyone can talk. It's freedom of speech. But you also must back up your words with actions.

"We are calm, very strong, and want to win."
