On Sunday 20th March 2022, we had the opportunity to witness an El Classico. Just as my previous article made it known, most fans from both sides were praising the recent form of their clubs. Everyone was expecting the match to be a tough one. But what really happened?
Albeit Carlo Ancelotti’s side started well, they fell behind just before the half-hour mark with a cross from Ousmane Dembele which Aubameyang headed into the post ahead of Eder Militao.
10 minutes later, Ronald Araujo the Uruguayan defender doubled Barca’s advantage with a power header off a corner kick. He did this by rising highest among his opponents to get a touch of the ball.
In the second half, Ferran Torres added his name to the list of scorers after three minutes of play. After receiving a clever back-heel flick from Aubameyang, Ferran completed the task by finishing high into the roof of the net.
Aubameyang scored his second and Barcelona’s fourth after 51 minutes. Unfortunately, the goal was called off with the linesman thinking it was an offside goal. But after the VAR review, the goal was accepted. This increased the goals of 4.
It was a sad day for the Madridstas but a memorable one for the Catalonias.
