Lionel Messi insists that Barcelona must play better against Real Madrid, after needing to come from behind to beat Sevilla at Camp Nou last night.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has issued a rallying cry to his teammates ahead of Tuesday's Clasico meeting against Real Madrid.

Barca came from behind to beat Sevilla 2-1 last night, thanks to goals from Messi and David Villa.

In their previous game they lost 2-0 at AC Milan in the Champions League, and Messi has insisted that they must raise their game against Madrid.

"We knew it would be a difficult game, more so after the result against Milan. But we won, and that's the main thing," he said after the match.

"I feel good and I like to play. Now we must play like we always do in the cup game against Madrid. We won't be able to count on a 0-0 draw."

Barcelona drew the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final with Madrid 1-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
