Schuster Pesimist On El Classico ....

Bernd Schuster has stated that he does not think Real Madrid have any chance of beating Barcelona at Camp Nou next week and stated that the defeat against Sevilla was not down to bad luck.

Winning In Barcelona Is Impossible - Schuster
The German coach has written off his team's chances of taking all three points in el Clásico because he believes that the Blaugrana are in such formidable form at home.

Whether he was starting the mind games early is difficult to tell, but it is a gamble to make such statements after the supporters had showed their anger towards president Ramón Calderón following the Sevilla reverse.

"The game against Barcelona worries me less than any other game. It is not possible to win because Barcelona are in devastating form and I believe that this is going to be their year," Schuster said.

"The team that (Barça) have can do well there, but I cannot say any more about that."

Schuster then rejected any talk of leaving Real Madrid because he feels that he has the full support of the players after their spirited come back against Sevilla.

Despite losing 4-3 at home, Los Merengues' second half display was impressive even though the coach was keen to bemoan his team's poor first half showing.

"I am not going to resign because the players are giving everything that they have. We just need a change of fortune and something going for us would be important," he continued.

"It is not a question of bad luck because playing well in the second half is not enough. We should have gone into the game and played better in the first half.

"We made life difficult for ourselves and we had to make a huge efort. At times we do well and at other times not. Games are more than 90 minutes long.

"Today we did some things well and other things we did not and you have to make your own luck. This game was not about being unlucky.

"Sevilla helped us in our comeback because they were passive in the second half and we took advantage of that. We could have done more if Robben had stayed one.

"I thought that we were on the verge of winning the game before he was sent off."
