by Staff Writer | Posted on Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Lionel Messi has stated that his side have to beat rivals Real Madrid in El Clasico and believes a victory would set up the Catalan sides season.

The European champions trail Real Madrid in the league by three points and have played a game more than Jose Mourinho’s side meaning a win is vital in Saturday’s game at the Bernabeu.

“It is vital we get a good result,” said the Argentine forward.

“It would set us up for the rest of the season.”

Barca fly out to Japan straight after the game on Saturday to take part in the Club World Cup and Messi believes the win would spur them on to win in the far east.

“If we don’t win then we’re not going to have much time to relax because we’ve got the trip to Japan, which is very important for us too.”

Real Madrid v Barcelona is live on ESPN Deportes on Saturday, December 10 at 4PM ET.
