Cristiano Ronaldo hailed Real Madrid's win at Barcelona , saying his side's recent Camp Nou performances have been better than their home form.
Ronaldo's brace set his side on their way to a 3-1 win in the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg , the third season in succession they have tasted victory on the turf of their rivals.
It earned them a 4-2 aggregate success in the tie after Raphael Varane headed the third before Jordi Alba's meaningless late consolation.
"It was a very good game, we played very well," Ronaldo told AS.
"From the first minute to the last we were very focused, with a great attitude. We played better than Barca, scoring three goals in the Nou Camp is extremely difficult.
"Lately whenever we play here we do very well. We play better here than at home.
"We must continue with this confidence. Most of the players like to play here and things are going well for us."
