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 majestic 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.
It is clear that Barcelona will win the Clasico against Real Madrid
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 Madridista’s attack, who played all in black this time, would have 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.
