With both teams having improved a lot since their meeting last October, the hope was for a better trò chơi played at a highher level. What we got instead was a bit disappointing: Barça had most of the possession but weren’t too good with it, while Madrid limited themselves to trying khổng lồ score on the counter attack. There was very little intensity from both sides, and the Blaugrana’s defense was all over the place thanks to some disorganized pressing.

Madrid had the better scoring chances, all of them on the counter, and one of them resulted in the opening goal when Sergio Busquets fell asleep in midfield & lost the ball lớn Karim Benzema, who eventually fed Vinicius Junior inside the box và the Brazilian scored with his left foot lớn give Madrid the lead.

Barça did respond well to lớn going behind & finally had a couple of shots on target with two headers from Luuk De Jong that went straight at Thibaut Courtois. But the Blaugrana showed very little creativity và would need some luck khổng lồ find a goal, and somehow they got it when Luuk De Jong showed excellent effort and blocked an attempted clearance by Éder Militão, redirecting the ball into the Madrid net to make it 1-1.

At halftime, a disappointing trò chơi was all square và neither team looked good enough khổng lồ win it, and truly anything could happen in the second half.


Xavi did a very good job in the halftime interval: his team talk clearly inspired the players to lớn come out with a different cấp độ of intensity và passion to start his second half, and his substitutions helped as well with the returning Pedri looking fantastic in his first game back after four months out with injury.

The Blaugrana went from wasteful and uncreative to lớn incisive and dangerous in attack, & they did a better job pressing without the ball lớn stop Madrid counters. Barça were clearly the better team & deserved lớn take the lead, but they conceded against the run of play instead: after forcing an amazing save out of Marc-André ter Stegen, Karim Benzema never gave up on the play & found the back of the net after Daniel Carvajal’s shot was deflected into the Frenchman’s path.

Barça once again showed great fighting spirit and amped up the pressure even more as they looked for an equalizer. Xavi changed formation khổng lồ a 3-3-4 & encouraged everyone khổng lồ go forward, and the Catalans pushed hard for an equalizer. Và with seven minutes khổng lồ go, they got it: after a short corner routine Jordi Alba played a glorious cross into the six-yard box and Ansu Fati was there all alone to head the ball home.

Neither team wanted lớn risk going out in the dying seconds so nothing happened until the final whistle, & El Clásico was headed to lớn extra-time.


The one downside of Barça’s comeback ahead of extra-time was that it left the team in a very vulnerable shape with just three defenders, and they could be exposed lớn a counter attack eventually. And that’s what happened eight minutes into the period when Madrid found themselves in a 4-on-2 break, and Rodrygo found Valverde all alone inside the box to lớn make it 3-2.

The last đôi mươi minutes of extra-time were all about Barça’s attempt at a third comeback on the night, & they certainly tried & had some good moments but ultimately failed to lớn beat Courtois for a third time. The final whistle came & Madrid are off to the Final where they’ll meet either Athletic Bilbao và Atlético Madrid, while Barça will travel back khổng lồ Catalonia lớn enjoy a rare weekend off to lớn prepare for the weeks ahead.

But they should leave Saudi Arabia with their heads held high. Is this team perfect? Not even close, but they are better than they were before Xavi took over & they gave Madrid 120 minutes of hell. They should be proud, and fans should too.
