Puyol urges Barcelona to focus on Chelsea after Clasico loss

The defender has called on his team-mates to no longer think about this weekend's home loss against Real Madrid, and turn their attention to the match versus the Blues instead
Carles Puyol has stressed that Barcelona need to move on from their 2-1 Liga loss at home against Real Madrid on Saturday, and focus on the upcoming Champions League match against Chelsea.

The Blaugrana were beaten 1-0 in the first leg of their semi-final tie against the Premier League side, and Puyol has made it clear that they are determined to turn things around in the return.

"We now have to focus on Tuesday. It’s a competition we are keen to win and we are close to another final," Puyol was quoted as saying on the Barcelona website.

"We have to be very aware of their counter attacks. I can see it being a similar game tactically to the Madrid match.

"It would be a very attractive final if we meet Madrid again. We’d have to see what would happen then, but for now we are focusing on Tuesday."

Tuesday's second leg at Camp Nou kicks off at 20.45CET.
