Tonight’s El Clasico saw 4 goals in each half, the near confirmation of the title heading to Nou Camp and a sobering, tragic and glorious pounding of Real Madrid (depending on which side you’re on).
Real Madrid scored first in both halves but each time Barcelona mounted a spirited come back with Henry leading the charge. Where Barcelona played brilliantly as a team (albeit with obvious short-comings at the back, notably at center-half), Real Madrid were poor and stunted in their teamwork, and while individual brilliance might have pulled them through in the second half of the season it didn’t work out for them against the ‘best team in Europe’.
It’s done and dusted folks, Barcelona have a 7 point lead with 4 games to go and both hands on the trophy, even miracles can’t stop them from lifting it this year.
