Real Madrid dominated their long-time rival Barcelona 3-1 in their home stadium, the Santiago Bernabeu, on the 16th of October, Sunday in the La Liga. After Real Madrid scored the first two goals in the contest, they were able to exert complete dominance over the competition from that point on. Both teams gave outstanding performances, but unfortunately for Barcelona, the game was decided by a string of unlucky breaks.
Throughout the entirety of the match, Barcelona held control of the ball for 57% of the time, and their pass accuracy was 89%. Real Madrid, on the other hand, enjoyed 43% of the game’s possession while also having an accuracy rate of 83% with their passes. Barcelona was superior to Real Madrid in every way, but in the end it doesn’t even matter because the team that scores the most goals wins the match. Real Madrid accomplished this by scoring three goals while Barcelona was only able to score one goal during this particular encounter.
Real Madrid scored two goals in the first half of the match, and both of them were successful in putting the ball in the back of the net. Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema scored the game’s opening goal while the match was only at the 12 minute mark. This put Real Madrid ahead for the foreseeable future. The defeat that Barcelona suffered was directly attributable to this goal. After that, Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde scored their second goal at the 35-minute mark of the game. At this point in the game, Barcelona was feeling a lot of disappointment, and after the first half was over, the score was 2-0.
In the second half, two more goals were scored, one of which was scored by Barcelona and the other was scored by Real Madrid. After 83 minutes, Barcelona’s Ferran Torres scored the first goal, giving them a glimmer of optimism that they would be able to catch up to Real Madrid. However, those hopes were extinguished when the match went to its full 90 minutes. However, despite the fact that the score was 2-1 at that point, the game was not over. Real Madrid player Rodrygo scored the third goal for his team after 90 minutes through a penalty and in the extra time at 90+1 minutes, which ensured that Real Madrid would win the match against Barcelona. After this, no more goals were scored, and the game ended with a score of 3-1.
