Barcelona thrashed Real Madrid 4-0 at the Santiago Bernabéu, with a brace from Aubameyang, this Sunday in the classic of the 29th round of the League, confirming the return to its best level after a very complicated first part of the season.
Goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (12, 53), Ronald Araujo (38) and Ferran Torres (47) brought Barça back to third place in the league and stopped the merengue leader in its tracks.

The loss of Frenchman Karim Benzema due to injury caused the scheme to change to Italian Carlo Ancelotti, by introducing a Fede Valverde who at least gave him delivery until the end, and it didn’t work.
And the culprit?
Caused above all by the bulk errors in the markings and in the exit of the ball from Real Madrid on a night in which they premiered a shirt special for the 120th anniversary of black, an omen, without knowing it, of what the night brought them.
“We have started with a defense of three, trying one against one behind, but it has not worked out, it was not the night. It is my fault. It is hard because it is a Clásico. Sorry, we have an advantage and we have to rest and prepare well in the next two weeks and come back.” said Carlo Ancelotti, manager of Real Madrid.
And he added: “Having more control of the ball and pressing a little higher up was the idea. The start was good but with the 0-1 we lost control, they found space and they hurt us”.
