Real Madrid defender Ezequiel Garay is convinced Barcelona are weaker this season without Samuel Eto'o.

Real face Barca this weekend in the El Clasico.

Garay was asked to compare Eto'o with Zlatan Ibrahimovic: "I think they're two different players with different characteristics, although the two are attackers.

"Eto'o was a very important player for Barcelona, it was very difficult for defenders to restrain him. They've lost a lot of such quality at Barcelona and I think Ibrahimovic is struggling too much to adjust to the team and Spanish football."
