Barcelona has no fear of Real Madrid, Barca star Cesc Fabregas says, ahead of next weekend's El Clasico
MADRID (AFP) - Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas insisted on Sunday that his team will not fear Real Madrid when the first El Clasico meeting of the season takes place at the Bernabeu next weekend. Spanish and European champions Barcelona trail their bitter rivals by three points at the top of La Liga and have played a game more. But ex-Arsenal skipper Fabregas believes a victory will be the perfect send-off before they head to Japan for the Club World Cup. 'We'll go at them at the Bernabeu with our usual game and without any fear. If we worry about what could happen, they are capable of being very dangerous, especially at home with their own fans behind them,' he said. 'The spirit in the camp is great and we are definitely brave enough to leave Madrid with a result and that would set us up nicely for the Club World Cup in Japan.'
