Real Get A Barca Bashing

El Classico

El Classico

Jose Mourinho was unbeaten for 19 games since he was at the helm of affairs at Real Madrid but that record took a pounding as Barcelona secured a thumping 5-0 victory over Real at the Camp Nou in a top of the table clash.

The El Classico termed as one of the biggest clashes in Europe turned out to be a one-sided affair as Barcelona went 2-0 by the 17th minute. Barcelona, fielding their strongest XI, almost took the lead in the 6th minute as Messi’s chip over Casillas rebounded of the post. But 4 minutes later, Barcelona did find the net. Iniesta’s through ball found Xavi, who took a touch before putting it past his Spanish teammate.

Real responded with an attack of their own but Angel Di Maria’s effort was fisted away by Valdes. Barcelona doubled their lead soon after as Pedro easily tapped in David Villa’s cross from the left. Barcelona dominated possession for the rest of the half and looked good to score more. Madrid’s talismanic striker came close with a freekick and also had a penalty appeal turned down.

Barcelona started the second half with the same intensity as they started the first with Xavi and Villa coming close to scoring. It didn’t take long to get another goal as Messi fed Villa, who appeared to be marginally offside, and the striker responded with a clinical finish. The duo combined once again and Villa made it four for the Catalan club. They threatened to run riot as Bojan’s shot was saved by Casillas. Substitute Jeffren Suarez completed the demolition with a neat goal. To add insult to injury, Madrid’s right back Sergio Ramos was sent off at the end for pushing Puyol in the face. Barcelona ended at  5-0 and ironically leapfrogged Madrid to go to the top of the table.
