Guardiola: We are not thinking about Real Madrid yet

Pep Guardiola warns that Barcelona have not yet qualified for the semifinals of the Champions League despite their 5-1 first leg triumph over Shakhtar Donetsk.

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is not yet looking ahead to a potential Champions League semi-final clash with Real Madrid despite comprehensively beating Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday evening.

The Spanish champions beat the Ukrainian visitors 5-1 at Camp Nou in the first leg of their quarter-final tie to put one foot into the semis.

Barca’s arch-rivals Madrid have also practically secured their place in the last four with a 4-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Bernabeu on Tuesday.

However Guardiola is not thinking about a potential date with the Blancos and told reporters after the match: "The result is what it is, but Shakhtar are led by an experienced coach and I am still afraid.

"We have to play in Donetsk first and then we will think about Real Madrid.”
