Barca crushed Real at El Clasico

The 184th El Clasico match in La Liga history got off to a satisfying start, with a series of tit-for-tat situations between both sides in the first 10 minutes.

Barca players celebrate Araujo’s 2-0 score (center).

The absence of Karim Benzema greatly affected the top team, while Barca under Xavi was no longer as gentle as the 1-2 defeat in the first leg.

Real only played well in the first minutes.

Real’s midfield, showing signs of fatigue, quickly lost its midfield to the trio of Busquets – Pedri – De Jong.

In a one-sided match, Real could not stand for half an hour.

There was no effective adjustment from Real after the break to make the El Clasico match more balanced and attractive.
