“Playing a Clásico against Real Madrid is an extra motivation. It is a team that we know because of the historical rivalry that exists between clubs. There is a lot left, you have to be calm, but it will be a great and complicated game,” he said from Barcelona, Jonatan Giráldez, Barça coach after the result of the draw.

There was no repetition, as happened in the men’s Champions League, nor did the Catalans and the Madridistas want to be early risers since the balls of both teams were the last to come out.
