Xavi Hernandez declared in a press conference that La Blaugrana was superior to Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabeu. The declarations were published in the FC Barcelona Web site after Barca's victory over Real Madrid.

Hernandez continued to state that La Blaugrana was experiencing a great era and that they enjoyed the match. He continued to talk about the dominance of La Blaugrana in the first half and how they were able to "play more comfortably" in the second half.

Cesc Fabregas, Sergio Busquets, Alves and Carlos Puyol made similar declarations concerning the latest match against Real Madrid. Fabregas praised Puyol and Abidal for their effort in scoring for La Blaugrana.

Alves talked about Barca "growing in the face of adversity" while Busquets is looking forward to a rematch. While this was a great birthday present for Pep Guardiola, I would like to condemn Pepe (Real Madrid) for stomping Messi in the hand.

The incident was a repeat of when Pepe kicked Messi in the face.

It is hoped that Pepe receives punishment such as a three- or five-game suspension since he has previous acts of violence. The attitude of Pepe makes FC Barcelona the more deserving of this victory.
