Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has scoffed at Xavi's summation of Barcelona's defeat in the El Clasico. Xavi insisted Barca did not deserve the 3-1 loss and insisted Real "lived on the counter attack".
Ramos smiled: "There are 20,000 opinions out there, that's the beauty of football, and they should all be respected, but anyone who knows football knows that we played fantastically and with a lot of intensity.
"You have to be realistic."
He added: "When you play as consummately as we did in the 'Clásico', you enjoy it all the more."
