Real Madrid vs. Barcelona - Football Match Report

May JohnsonMar 01, 2019

Real are now nine points behind their fierce rivals in La Liga but do have a chance to close the gap on Saturday when the pair meet in the league.

"They were a lot more efficient than we were", Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari said. They didn't take their chances in the first half but we took ours later.

Real Madrid wonderkid Vinicius Jr has sought to clarify himself ahead of the Clasico after he was quoted as saying nobody is scared of FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi. They scored with their first shot on goal, and then with their second shot on goal.

It is being reported by media outlets such as ESPN, that alleged racist insults were directed by Real Madrid fans towards Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele.

Ernesto Valverde's side will now face Valencia or Real Betis, currently tied 2-2 on aggregate following their first leg, in the final on May 25 in Sevilla. Their mediocre season is being attributed to the departure of their talismanic No.7, Cristiano Ronaldo.

After conceding at home, Barcelona needed to score at the Bernabeu to have any chance of advancing, and it didn't look good for the Catalan club as it was outplayed by Madrid throughout the first half.

Hundreds of arrest warrants have been issued in recent days as a result of a six-month investigation, and more are expected. The police chief of Jupiter, Florida, said, adding that there is video evidence.

One of his best performances as a Blaugrana player took place at the Bernabeu.

It didn't take long for Suarez to add another with a Panenka-style penalty in the 73rd after he was fouled by midfielder Casemiro inside the area. Messi and Dembele again combined but it was Raphael Varane, not Suarez, who'd end up bundling the cross into the net from close range.

Barca have now scored at least three times in victories on four of their last five visits to the Bernabeu across the Copa and La Liga, but Solari denied that this result would have a big impact on his team's future games, starting with Saturday's Liga Clasico back at the Bernabeu.

"Messi is incredible, he does things that few players are able to do but he doesn't frighten us", he wrote in a response on Twitter, as quoted by Marca.

Real Madrid are likely to be relying on the Champions League again for another trophy this season but there was room for encouragement against Barcelona on Wednesday beyond their resounding defeat.
