Barcelona coach Guardiola has swipe at Real Madrid spending

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has taken a swipe at Real Madrid ahead of their big weekend clash.

After victory over Inter Milan on Tuesday night, Guardiola declared he was confident Lionel Messi would be fit for the El Clasico and also had a dig at Real's spending.

"It's better to face such a game in victory than defeat. They are the leaders, but of course, how could they not be after spending $270 million?!!

"I'm very optimistic that Leo will play."
