Bernabeu legend and honorary club president believes that Pep Guardiola’s side demonstrated a gulf in class at the weekend, insisting their rivals were ‘simply brilliant’

Real Madrid honorary president Alfredo Di Stefano has lauded rivals Barcelona as a 'superior' side, insisting that Pep Guardiola's side exposed the gulf in class at the weekend.

The first of four clasico's ended in a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening as Madrid came from behind to share a point with Barca at the Bernabeu.

Nonetheless, Di Stefano feels Jose Mourinho has not been able to tame Barcelona's brilliance as the Catalan outfit remain eight points ahead in the race for the title.

And with the two sides set to lock horns in the Copa del Rey final on Wednesday night, the former legendary forward believes Mourinho's side lack the personality to overthrow Guardiola's league leaders.

"The football Barcelona played at the Bernabeu was simply brilliant. Their superiority was clear," said Di Stefano, reports Sport.es.

"Madrid played against a Barcelona side who dominated throughout the whole game. It's clear Barca are superior to Madrid who are a team with no personality.

"Their approach was clearly wrong."

The Copa del Rey final will be played at the Mestalla on Wednesday evening.
