The highly awaited 249th El Clasico as Barcelona is reviving under the leadership of Xavi. Their first task is to take revenge when Barca lost the first leg and prevent Real from championing early in La Liga.
At the start, the match was exciting. Barca played an impressive attack. In the 12th minute, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had to save Real two times when blocking Aubameyang and Ousmane Dembele‘s shots.
With a relaxed mentality, Barca entered confidently and played well when Real lost their forces. Because Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy were injured. In the 29th minute, the opening goal came to Barca thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Dembele easily beat Nacho on the right and then crossed the ball inside for Aubameyang to head to score for Barca.
Less than 10 minutes later, Dembele took a corner on the right, center-back Ronald Araujo headed to beat Courtois. Barca finished the first half with a score of 2-0. Real is totally disappointed.
As soon as the second half started in 2 minutes, Barca had a third goal thanks to Ferran Torres. This time, Aubameyang passed the ball for Torres to put the ball into the corner of the goal. The score is 3 – 0.
In the 51st minute, Aubameyang continued to score against Real, but the referee reported offside. But soon after, VAR announced a valid goal. Real players expressed anger, saying they stopped because the assistant referee reported offside. Thus, the former Arsenal star has a double in the first El Clasico match.
Leading up to 4 goals, Barca is still playing full of desire and Real has lost all spirit. 4-0 is the final result.
