Real 0-3 Barca: Best trolls, stats

Real Madrid 0-3 Barca: The trolls, records, and penalty controversy

December 23, 2017 By Ali M.
Real Madrid, who was embarrassed at their own stadium, felt they were denied a clear penalty.

What a Clasico that was! With the game being 0-0 at half-time and Real Madrid creating more opportunities, little would have expected Barcelona to come away with a big win. That is exactly what happened, however, as the away side beat their rival 3-0 at the Bernabeu.

Luis Suarez opened the scoring after completing a beautiful, free-flowing attack. Things went from bad to worse for Zidane’s side in the 63rd minute when Dani Carvajal was sent off for punching a ball headed for goal. A penalty was given which Messi converted.

Leo then set up Aleix Vidal for the third in the dying minutes to embarrass Los Blancos. The players left disappointed, but the anger and trolls were directed mainly at one man: Carvajal.

The Spanish right-back’s sending off left the home side with a two-goal deficit to overcome with only 10 players. Many labeled the defender a world-class keeper for how he stopped the ball with his hands.

Ernesto Valverde’s side will enjoy this victory, as a number of records were set in this Clasico. Firstly, this was the first time in Barcelona’s history that they won three consecutive league games at the Bernabeu, joining Atletico as the only teams to have reached this feat.

Messi also broke a few records. He became the all-time leading scorer for a single club in Europe’s top five leagues while scoring his 25th strike in El Clasico, also a record.

Real Madrid and their fans, however, felt cheated out of a penalty. With the game 2-0, Asensio was brought in before a cross from the Spaniard hit Sergi Roberto’s hand inside the box. The referee refused to award a spot kick, much to the anger of the Blancos players.

And with that, these two Spanish giants waved goodbye to 2017. It was a disappointing end for Real Madrid, but expect them to want revenge in their Camp Nou trip.
