Solari: Real Madrid standing united ahead of two El Clasicos in four days

Real Madrid’s players – including Gareth Bale – are “standing united” as they prepare for two Clasicos against Barcelona in four days, says boss Santiago Solari.

Real host Barca in the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg on Wednesday, having drawn the first game 1-1, and then again in La Liga on Saturday.

Bale refused to celebrate when he scored in Sunday’s 2-1 win at Levante.

“Some things that stay in the dressing room remain private,” said Solari.

“I understand everyone wants to find a focus and you put the focus where it seems important.

“But our focus is only on what we think is important. It is on the game, to win on Wednesday, to be united. Where others focus is up to them.”
