Casillas: Real Madrid would also have thrashed Man Utd

Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas has scoffed at the quality of Champions League runners up Manchester United. Casillas insists Real would have run Barcelona much closer than what United did on Saturday.

"I think in the semifinal between Madrid and Barcelona was the champion of Europe," he said.

"The two best teams in Europe faced eachother at that time. The two best are from Spain, a very positive thing for all Spanish football.

"In the end it was the superiority of Barcelona against Manchester United. I believe one hundred percent, if Madrid had been in that final we also would have overrun Manchester United."
