Yesterday, Barcelona was finally able to break the curse and earn their first win against Real Madrid since 2019. The Catalonian giants thrashed the LaLiga leaders with a score of 4-0.
The star of the match, Pierre Emerick Aubemayang, scored a brace, while the other goals were scored by Ronald Araujo and Ferran Torres.
It’s clear that Xavi’s impact on the team has been massive. He took charge of the team 4 months ago, and since then, Barcelona has moved up from 9th to the 3rd place in the LaLiga’s standings.
The Barcelona players looked confident as ever, something that was clearly missing with the previous coaches. “We could easily have scored five or six. We changed our negative dynamic of losing the last few Clasicos”, said Busquets, the Barca midfielder.
