Sergio Busquets: Barcelona can now focus on Real Madrid after defeating Shakhtar Donetsk

Spain midfielder believes now is the time for the club to look toward Saturday's encounter after defeating Ukranians to make the Champions League semi-finals
Barcelona star Sergio Busquets believes now is the time to start looking toward Saturday's highly-anticipated 'el Clasico' clash against Real Madrid, which he believes will decide the La Liga title.

The midfielder was speaking after his side booked their spot in the Champions League semi-final with a deserved 1-0 away victory over Shakhtar Donetsk which saw his side run out comprehensive 6-1 winners on aggregate.

"They started very well but after 15 minutes of the match we took control," the 22-year-old told AS after the win in Ukraine.

"Now we can start thinking about 'el Clasico'. It will be a tough game but if we win, it could decide the outcome of the league."

Busquets once again started the game in the centre of defence, a role he has occupied regularly since Carles Puyol and Eric Abidal were ruled out with injury.

"For me it's best to play midfield but if the team needs it, I can play anywhere," the versatile player concluded.
