Real Madrid assistant coach Aitor Karanka has hit out at UEFA for dismissing their charges against Barcelona. Madrid reported Barca for unsporting conduct during last week's first leg at the Bernabeu, in which defender Pepe and coach Jose Mourinho were dismissed for the hosts, and have also accused Barca midfielder of Sergio Busquets of racially abusing their full-back, Marcelo.
"Tomorrow's match has been overshadowed by UEFA's resolution - it's on another plane now," said Karanka.
"We have been punished but there are [Barca] players who didn't respect the principles of fair play or who made racist insults, covering their mouths, who will be on the pitch tomorrow."
Karanka insists the suspended Jose Mourinho will still be in a position to influence proceedings.
"He will be in the stands, but he will be able to get his message across," Karanka said. "If we could win and dedicate the victory to him it would be something important.
"Real Madrid have 109 years of proud history and we will fight to the end."
