Barcelona's assistant coach Jordi Roura admits that Real Madrid were "far superior" in their 3-1 defeat at Camp Nou on Tuesday.

Barcelona's assistant coach Jordi Roura has admitted that Real Madrid were "far superior" in their 3-1 defeat at Camp Nou on Tuesday.

Barca were comfortably beaten in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final Clasico, and Roura refused to make excuses for his side's defeat to their arch-rivals.

"In the first leg (which ended 1-1) and in the Supercopa, the two teams were matched. They were decided by details. [But tonight, Madrid] were far superior," Roura told reporters.

"In football you cannot always control things, it is a game of mistakes. Madrid are one of the best teams around on the break.

"This is a thing that we knew, and we tried to control it but we lacked wisdom. We lacked effectiveness. This makes Madrid a great team."

Jose Mourinho's side will meet with Atletico Madrid or Sevilla in the final.
