Barcelona Vs Madrid : All You Need To Know About Dallas El Clasico



Barcelona picked up their first victory of this pre-season with a 3-0 victory over Real Madrid in a wild El Clasico match at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Saturday night.

A match that had never been a friendly was a lot of intensity, big chances, three great goals and a great victory for Barcelona who played very well in some sequences and had to struggle a lot in others, but found a way to win. Their biggest rivals in a really great pre-season game. first half

Barcelona came out with at least the strongest team to start the season, completely controlling the midfield in the first 20 minutes, and a quartet of Oriol Romeu, Frenkie de Jong, Pedri and Ilkay Gundogan dominated a tight defense.

Get the ball back quickly and don’t let Real Madrid counter-attack.
Romeo almost opened the scoring after five minutes with a wonderful shot that hit the crossbar, and after 10 minutes the Blaugrana took the lead thanks to a wonderful free-kick as Pedri found Ousmane Dembele alone in the penalty area. the network. bottom corner. Real Madrid took more of the initiative after coming from behind and could have equalized almost immediately when Ronald Araujo kicked a ridiculous penalty while handling the ball in the penalty area, but Vinicius hit the crossbar and missed.

After that, the game became very physical and sometimes violent, with difficult tackles, challenges from both sides, and a very low quality on the ball.

But Los Blancos had two chances, Vinicius hitting the crossbar again and Judd Bellingham heading the ball wide of the post. Rodrygo also had to brilliantly tackle Marc-Andre ter Stegen, and somehow Barcelona survived the end of the first half without withdrawing. Both results and performances were positive, but there was a couple of bad news in the first 45 minutes as Barcelona lost Andreas Christensen and Gundogan to obvious muscle injuries.

In the first half, Barcelona took the lead after a great start, but Real Madrid is back in the game and will certainly advance in the closing stages in search of a comeback. The second part

Xavi Hernández decided to stick with his side for much longer than the opening game against Arsenal, playing most of the first match in 75 minutes to improve fitness and try to preserve the win.

The team started the first half well, with 10 minutes of solid possession and some excellent chances. But as time went on the lack of fitness began and Real Madrid began to emerge as a stronger and sharper team thanks to a more advanced preparation period.

Los Blancos, however, did not create a real chance, but Aurélien Tchouaméni’s missile from long range hit the crossbar and then Ter Stegen’s header before taking a corner, and when Xavi finally decided, he tried to steal the scorer in the 15th minute in Blaugrana.

Always move forward. Xavi’s changes made several players more offensive, changing the formation into a 4-2-4 counter-attacking pattern. And that’s exactly what they did with five minutes remaining with an own goal from 20-year-old academy midfielder Fermin Lopez, who rocketed into the top corner with his weaker left foot to double Barca’s lead.

Madrid threw the pelvis wide in an attempt to come back late and Vinicius hit over the bar for the third time, but luck was on Barcelona’s team again and the Blaugrana added a third goal to seal the victory: Firmin finished the show.

His cool looks equate to help as he plays. A wonderful pass from Ferran Torres, who put the ball past Thibaut Courtois and scored the second goal in an empty net in two pre-season matches.

The final whistle blows at the end of an intense classic match where there is absolutely everything. Real hit the crossbar four times, missed a penalty kick, and had at least three other chances, but Barcelona came out with a clean sheet and won by three goals. The Blaugrana also had their moments and played well while they could still run, and a very enjoyable 90 minutes ended up with a satisfactory result for the good guys.
