Gerard Pique says he is confident Barcelona can return to form with a victory over Real Madrid in El Clasico this weekend.

The Catalan giants will enter the clash on the back of a 3-0 aggregate loss to Juventus in the Champions League.

But Spanish international Pique says form will count for nothing in the weekend’s match.

“We are human, of course, something is going to affect us,” he said following the loss to Juventus.

“On Sunday there’s another big match, and we’ll go there to compete and try and win.

“Even if we are not in our best moment, I believe we can go there and win.”

Manager Luis Enrique, echoed his player’s thoughts, saying the clash would be “the best motivation” for his side to overcome their form slump.

 “Picking youself up after a defeat like this is hard, but we have the best motivation a Cule can have,” he said.

“Which is visit the home of our eternal rival – there’s no better place than to go to than the Bernabeu.”It will be as special as ever and it’s a marvellous stimulus: a key game against the leader, a direct opponent. We have to get ready and compete and I am sure we will do that.”
