José Mourinho summarised the match day seven match against Barcelona: "I think that the world will be happy because often these matches are too tactical and finish goalless. This match had everything that people like. Those fans that are in different time zones across Europe will have been awake and enjoyed this Clasico a lot and perhaps are already asking for another one in the Cup or the Champions League, if we get through. I think it was a great match and I said so to Vilanova. The league is as it was before with the same points difference that there was before the match. I really enjoyed my team’s display".
