Real Madrid defender Pepe scoffs at Xavi El Clasico claims

Real Madrid defender Pepe has dismissed Xavi's claims that Barcelona did not deserve defeat in Saturday's El Clasico. Xavi claimed Barca dominated the game and Real "lived on the counter attack".

"I don't think that that is so," Pepe responded.

"Our supporters chanted 'olés' and that says it all. We played after having one day less of recovery than them and showed them our class.

"We have to continue with humility."
