Barcelona’s greatest ever wins at the home of their fiercest rivals

first_img1 As Barcelona prepare for Saturday’s game at Real Madrid, potentially without Lionel Messi who remains a doubt, talkSPORT look at Barca’s most memorable victories at the home of their eternal rivals.5. Real Madrid 2-3 Barcelona – La Liga November 1st 1997 In a thrilling back-and-forth match Barcelona defeated Los Blancos 3-2 en route to winning the La Liga title, with Barcelona goalkeeper Ruud Hesp making a series of saves to keep his side in the game.Barca took the lead in the fifth minute through new arrival Rivaldo before Madrid legend Raúl equalised early in the second half. Just a minute later a thumping solo effort from now-manager Luis Enrique made it 2-1 but Madrid pegged their rivals back again through future Arsenal striker Davor Šuker. Then 11 minutes from time Luis Figo, before his infamous move to Madrid, brilliantly set up Giovanni Silva who crashed home to decide the contest.Barcelona would go on to beat Madrid 3-0 in the home fixture and win La Liga with four matches still to play, as Louis Van Gaal managed the side to the title in his first year at the helm.4. Real Madrid 0-2 Barcelona – Champions League Semi-final First Leg 27th April 2011With Mourinho’s arrival before the start of the season, the El Clásico was given another dimension with the fierce rivalry between him and Guardiola. And having beaten Madrid 5-0 earlier in the season in La Liga, this match represented the third of four El Clasico’s in three weeks as the sides met in the two-legged Champions League semi-final.It was a bad-tempered affair marred by ill-discipline from both sides. Substitute goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto was sent off from the bench after his slap on Madrid’s Alvaro Arbeloa sparked a melee on the touchline just before half time. The game failed to flow due to constant stoppages and Madrid centre-back Pepe was then shown red early in the second half following his high tackle on Dani Alves, Mourinho himself was sent to the stands after his sarcastic reaction to the decision.But the match was lit up by Lionel Messi with two second half goals, the second a majestic solo effort. After breaking the deadlock in the 76th minute, Messi embarked on a run from midfield, jinking past defenders and penetrating the heart of Madrid’s defence before sliding home past Iker Casillas late on.Barcelona would go on to draw 1-1 in the second leg en route to winning the Champions League, outclassing Manchester United 3-1 at Wembley.  3. Real Madrid 0-5 Barcelona – La Liga 17th February 1974 After Barcelona had dallied in signing of Ballon D’or holder Johan Cruyff from Ajax, rumours emerged that Real Madrid had tried to step in and sign the superstar. However Barcelona would eventually complete the transfer for a then-world record fee after it emerged Cruyff would refuse to play Madrid due to their association with Spanish dictator General Francisco Franco. Cruyff then further endeared himself to his new supporters as he starred in his appearance for Barcelona in the Bernabéu, setting up three goals and scoring one himself as Barcelona preceded to dismantle their opponents. Goals from Juan Manuel Asensi (2), Hugo Sotil, Juan Carlos and Cruyff saw Barca fans watching on TV back home pour into the Barcelona streets in celebration as they outclassed an impotent Madrid side with ease.The win sent Barca on their way to their first La Liga title since 1960 and Cruyff to another Ballon D’or, his third, while a lumbering Madrid finished in 8th place. 2. Real Madrid 0-3 Barcelona – La Liga 19th November 2005Barcelona thrashed the Galacticos of Madrid 3-0 led by a brilliant performance from an unstoppable Ronaldinho, who bagged a brace.A Real Madrid team featuring Roberto Carlos, Zidane, Beckham, Raul and Ronaldo were poor defensively and were completely dominated by Frank Rijkaard’s Barcelona. First an eighteen-year-old Lionel Messi was afforded space and dribbled through midfield to set up Samuel Eto’o, who stabbed home for the opener. Then Ronaldinho took over the game in the second half with two spectacular solo goals. Both times the Brazilian picked up the ball from deep, cut in from the left, beat Sergio Ramos with ease and finished past Casillas.And in an iconic moment, the Santiago Bernabéu stood up and applauded Ronaldinho, putting aside their team’s fierce rivalry to show their appreciation of his brillianceBarca would go on to win the league by 12 points that season and also tasted European success, beating Arsenal 2-1 in the Champions League final. The Madrid manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo meanwhile was sacked just over two weeks later.center_img Barcelona 1. Real Madrid 2-6 Barcelona 6 – La Liga In one of the most high-stakes El Clásicos ever, Madrid were stunned by Barcelona in a late season fixture which all but decided the La Liga title race. The away side’s goals came courtesy of Lionel Messi and Thierry Henry who scored braces, as well as one apiece from centre-back partners Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique.After going a goal behind to a Gonzalo Higuain header, Barca reacted brilliantly to tear apart their opponents and they hit back through Henry, Puyol and Messi to go 3-1 up by half-time. Though Madrid were given hope by a Ramos header, Henry punished Madrid’s high-line to restore his side’s two-goal cushion shortly after. Barca then proceeded to pass their opponents off the pitch in the second half as Madrid chased the equaliser and Messi added a fifth before Pique completed the embarassment of their biggest rivals.The win truly announced the Guardiola-era and his side became renowned as one of the greatest teams ever. The 2008/09 Barcelona went on to win the La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League to complete a first-ever treble in a historic season.last_img read more

Honoring the dead

first_imgCelebrations of Dia de los Muertos, a Mexican and Central American holiday honoring the dead, will be held beginning today throughout the region.
