Quique Setien insists Barcelona will bounce back from the El Clasico defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu last weekend.


The Barca boss is confident the 2-0 loss to bitter rivals Real Madrid will not divert their focus from securing the top spot in LaLiga.


Speaking ahead of the Blaugrana’s clash against Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou on Saturday, Setien said: "I am calm because I know that we are going to face the game having got over the [Real Madrid] defeat.


Former Argentina goalkeeper Gatti has taken aim at Messi.


"There are no sequels of the Clasico. We are aware that we generated seven scoring chances, which is a significant number. That defeat will not affect us.


"I understand that it is very difficult for Barca and Madrid to win everything until the end.


"The league is very complicated, it is very difficult to win the matches against any team. We are motivated to keep the pace we want."
