Barcelona and Real Madrid will go to the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi final evenly matched after a 1-1 draw at Camp Nou. However, the sole scorer for Real, Lucas Vazquez is not entirely a happy man and says that the visitors deserved more.

Real took the lead in the sixth minute when Vazquez flicked the ball beyond Marc-Andre ter Stegen, though Malcom equalized in the second half to earn a draw for Barca.

Here’s Real’s goal from Lucas off a pass from Karim Benzema just six minutes in.


“It’s a bittersweet feeling because the team deserved more,” Vazquez said in a post-match press conference. “I’m thrilled to have got the goal and helped the team but we lacked that little bit to go on and win it.”

“I’ll take away our efforts for 90 minutes because everyone ran hard and worked with real intensity, both up front and at the back, and that’s the secret to this group. We have to keep it up”

“We’d planned a match where we’d press high up and win the ball back in their half, and we did just that, especially before half-time. Every player is extremely committed, we’re all pulling in the same direction.”

“Towards the end we had a couple of great chances to make it 1-2 but it wasn’t to be. The tie is wide open and it’ll be a hard-fought game next time out. We will be going all out for a win at the Bernabeu in front of our fans. All together we’ll push to seal a place in the final.”
