Barcelona deals with its opponents
Real Madrid saw a very dark Sunday
All in black, he tested the “ballet white” of La Liga champions Real Madrid last Sunday. arch-rivals FC Barcelona, accustomed to success, inflicted a humiliating defeat at home on Madridistas, which could have been worse.
Real Madrid suffered a painful and unforgettable defeat at home in the Spanish football Clasico against arch-rivals FC Barcelona. The “Royal” lost around former German world champion Toni Kroos and former Bayern defense chief David Alaba 0:4 (0:2) on Sunday night at the venerable Santiago Bernabeu.
With two goals, former Bundesliga player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (minutes 29 and 51) made a huge contribution to the prestigious success of the financially struggling Catalans, who were even forced to part with their superstar Lionel Messi before the season. National goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen spent a rather uneventful evening in the guest post against totally disappointing hosts. Without injured striker Karim Benzema, the Madrid attack, who this time played in their black shirts for the 120th anniversary, achieved almost nothing.
Ronald Araujo (38 minutes) and Ferran Torres (47) scored the other goals for coach Xavi Hernandez’s team, which will face Eintracht Frankfurt in the quarter-finals of the European League.
The last time Barcelona beat Real Madrid 4-0 was in November 2015. The club has not managed to win the past six classic matches. In the table, Real remained under coach Carlo Ancelotti with 66 points ahead of Sevilla (57), who played 0-0 at home only against Real Sociedad San Sebastian before Real lost. Barcelona occupies third place in the number of points with Atletico Madrid.
