Soldado Wants Revenge

Valencia striker Roberto Soldado is hoping to exact revenge on Real Madrid ahead of their league clash on Sunday.

Los Blancos beat Los Che 2-0 on Wednesday in the first-leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final, but a number of controversial refereeing decisions dominated the post-match talk.

The two teams will face off in La Liga this weekend, and Soldado says that they will do all they can to get their own back.

"I do not think the referee was prejudiced against us. What happened, though, has to serve to strengthen us, to make us stronger," he said.

"The cup tie really could go either way. We also could have left with a better or worse scoreline because they had further chances too, but what happened at the (Santiago) Bernabeu must make us stronger.

"We are outraged but we have to unite and more so at home with these two games against Real Madrid."

"We will aim for revenge. It is great to play three matches of this intensity against Real. We are all looking forward to playing the game on Sunday and give it our all to ensure we get our revenge."
