The last El Clasico was played without the injured Lionel Messi and without Ronaldo, who plays for Real Madrid no more. Barcelona won 5-1, which brings to memory a similar win, where Barcelona scored five goals against the Los Blancos.
This edition of Mediamax Sport’s In One Shot tells about that game and why the score held a special meaning to Gerard Pique.
The defender once said the first El Clasico he could remember watching was in 1994. Barcelona beat its biggest rival 5-0 with 6-year-old Pique watching from the stands with his family.
16 years later, the two clubs were facing each other again, but that time Pique was on the pitch.
Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona recorded one of its biggest wins against Real Madrid, managed in 2010 by Jose Mourinho. Xavi, Pedro and Jeffrén Suarez all scored goals and David Villa got a brace.
The win shook Barcelona fans and football lovers alike, provoking bursts of celebration of that emphatic victory.
While the players and the staff were celebrating on the pitch, Gerard Pique walked along the stands, showing his right hand with fingers spread wine, and the fans echoed the jest marking the 5-0 win.
