Lack of cutting edge in front of goal in Barça defeat: "Apart from in the last game, we've scored goals, and scored quite a few".

The encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu.saw Real Madrid suffer a 3-0 bashing from rivals Barcelona with Varane, who won last summer's World Cup with France in the thick of the action, as the Los Blancos crashed out 4-1 on aggregate to the Blaugrana.

Yet up next for Barca is their second La Liga Clasico of the season as Real Madrid host them on Saturday at the Bernabeu.

Messi, all-time top scorer in the Clasico, was unusually quiet in his side's 3-0 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu, a game in which Real had many more chances but Barca were more clinical. We lost the ball in bad areas and it could have cost us a goal. It would leave the Champions League as the only competition in which it can still succeed in its first season without Cristiano Ronaldo in almost a decade.

Solari added: "I have nothing to say to the fans".

Bale refused to budge and despite another season peppered by persistent injuries, he went on to score twice from the bench in the Champions League final against Liverpool. "We have to come here with our batteries fully charged again".

Saturday's fixture will be the second time in a week that Spain's two most traditionally dominant clubs will meet.

"They both seem far away but they are not", said Barcelona defender Gerard Pique.

Ernesto Valverde celebrated his 100th match in charge of Barcelona on Wednesday, and has a chance to strike another double blow with a repeat result in his 101st on Saturday, by knocking Madrid out of contention in the league. "Other times, it is the other way around", said Valverde.

"Messi is awesome, he does things that few players are able to do but he doesn't frighten us", he wrote in a response on Twitter, as quoted by Marca.

"After all of our efforts and having fought until the final whistle, having made chances and dominating for so long in the game, this result really hurts", Solari told a press conference.

Ter Stegen's best effort denied Sergio Reguilon, whose goalbound second-half header would have hauled Solari's side level on the night. "We'll approach the game with the same desire and the same spirit as the previous one, and we'll look to improve on what we can and keep doing what we did well".
