Will be better prepared: Alves

sports Updated: Aug 16, 2011 23:11 IST

Barcelona's Dani Alves has told Real Madrid to expect a far more fluid display from the champions when the two great rivals meet in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday.

Barca looked rusty in Sunday's first leg at the Bernabeu, but still earned a 2-2 draw.

The pressure is on Madrid coach Jose Mourinho to topple the Barca hegemony in his second season after the Catalan side won the domestic league and the Champions League in 2010-11.

"We will improve as we go along. It was a hard fought match with a high intensity and I am happy with the work of the team who responded well," said Brazilian Alves.

"It was a good result for us as it was never going to be easy. We will be better prepared for the next game," he added.
