REAL MADRID VS BARCELONA 2022 (EL CLASSICO) MATCH UPDATE

El Clasico is the moniker given to any match between Real Madrid and Barcelona, who are arch rivals. It’s a Spanish phrase that means ‘The Classic’ in English and is referred to as El Classic in Catalan.

Real Madrid and Barcelona, two of Spain’s largest and most successful clubs, are regarded as the pinnacle of Spanish football, leading to the notion that they constitute the country’s ‘classic’ match.

El Clasico has come to represent much more than simply the on-field confrontation between Barcelona and Real Madrid in a more abstract sense, since it is a vivid emblem of Spain’s infamous Civil War split. El Clasico is known to be highest or biggest rivalry in the history of football.

On the 20th March, 2022, there was an El Clasico in their league known to be La Liga, game week 29. After Real Madrid victory against Paris Saint Germain

(PSG)  in the champions league on the 9th of March, 2022, the victory lead them to qualify for the Quarter Finals.

Barcelona beat Real Madrid 4-0 at the Bernabeu, putting on a spectacular display.

Both teams got off to a fast start, taking turns applying pressure high up the pitch. Both, however, squandered early opportunities to take the lead. The guests were the ones who struck first.

Without Lionel Messi, the club’s new-look team was floundering, and years of financial mismanagement appeared to be jeopardizing the club’s status at the top of European football.

But the team had begun to show promise since club legend Xavi took over the reins in November, and its 4-0 thrashing of strong rival Real Madrid in the La Liga leaders’ own stadium on Sunday was the biggest show of power yet.

“I’m overjoyed; it’s going to be a great night,” Xavi told reporters. “Barça has returned.”

 

“Today, we demonstrated that we can compete with a fantastic Real Madrid club that is on a roll and playing in their stadium.”

“It’s a fantastic success that gives us hope for the future of our project.”

Just before the half-hour mark, Ousmane Dembele breezed past Nacho down the right flank and sent a beautiful cross for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to head home.

He has been scoring goals consistently since joining Barcelona from Arsenal and that is currently propelling the Barca team towards the right direction as they are picking up good point.

Dembele provided another assist when he delivered a corner that Ronald Araujo climbed highest to head into the net 38 minutes into the game.

 

Xavi’s team raced out of the blocks and added a third only two minutes after the interval. Aubameyang flicked it back for Ferran Torres to curl past Thibaut Courtois after Frankie de Jong had played it in.

Torres is another player who joined Barcelona from the English Premier League and Manchester City precisely, he brought quality to the Laliga side as well and they are really becoming difficult to play against this days.

In the 51st minute, the Bernabeu was astonished once more, Aubameyang hooked the ball past Courtois after Ferran controlled a long ball from the back. The offside flag was raised almost immediately, but the goal was awarded following a VAR review.

Barcelona appeared to be fluid and full of ideas, but Los Blancos appeared to be lifeless and without choices. In fact, if it hadn’t been for Thibaut Courtois in goal, the visitors could have extended their lead even further.
