Barca are back! Real Madrid 0-4 Barcelona: Blaugrana batter Real at Bernabeu

Barcelona ran riot at the Bernabau on Sunday evening, thrashing table-toppers Real Madrid 4-0 in a shock El Clasico victory.

Despite remaining 12 points behind their bitter rivals, Barcelona produced arguably their performance of the season as they dismantled Carlo Ancelotti’s men, fresh off the back of their Champions League RO16 victory over Paris Saint Germain last week.

Barca have been in stellar form since the arrival of their new, with this being their third straight victory in all coemptions and sixth in their last seven matches. Xavi’s new and improved side have also scored four or more in five of their last seven games.

Real were also in a fine run of form themselves having won five on the bounce but were stunned as a brace from Barca’s new centre forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as well as goals from fellow new signing Ferran Torres and Ronald Araújo plunged the home fans into silence.

Barca manager Xavi looked animated on the side lines but was quick to point out the reality of his sides situation after the result stating “I don’t know if we can win the title, we can’t rule out anything. Maybe we’re a bit late, but this is a very big win for us.”

Ancelotti was apologetic to fans following his side’s dismal showing, attempting to explain the defeat saying “We started the second half trying to play one against one at the back – three defenders against their three forwards – but it didn’t work. I can only apologise to the fans.”

The away side’s league position did not dampen their celebrations at full time however, with Barca players and coaching staff looking ecstatic as they celebrated their first El Clasico victory in three years.

Barca host Sevilla on Sunday 3rd April (8PM GMT) , who sit three points ahead of them, with the hosts having a game in hand over their opponents.
