Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Real Madrid advanced to the final of the Glass of the King with an unappealable goleada to the FC Barcelona in Camp Nou (0-4). The ones of Carlo Ancelotti gave back the goleada suffered recently more than a year in Santiago Bernabéu thanks to a 'hat trick' of Karim Benzema and one of Vinicius Jr. After a second part for the forget of a group blaugrana that it was unable to sustain the minimum advantage achieved in the gone in Chamartín.

The break of the party arrived in the first minute of discount of the first part, when a big stopped of Thibaut Courtois derived in one against lethal of the group 'merengue'. The Barça remained badly stopped in the shrinking and between 'Vini' and Benzema resolved the so much with which the Brazilian equalised the eliminatory. After the rest was all of the Madrid, with an unrecognizable Barcelona in defence that finish goleado home.

Ter Stegen

It did not have responsibility in any of the goals 'merengues'. By the contrary, avoided greater evils with a paradón to Marco Asensio when the party already was 0-3. However, it was imprecise with the feet and gave a pair of balloons with bad passes to three chambers of field, something rare in him.

Ronald Araújo

After a good first part in his task to mark to Vinicius, suffered in the complement in front of the Brazilian with a bottom culé totally broken. It finish admonished by a push to the Brazilian, sample of the frustration that lived all the team in a second disastrous part. Still like this, it went again the best and leader of the saga.

Jules Koundé

The French had a horrible party like first head office. It did not reach to cover the centre of the saga in the contragolpe that derived in the 0-1 and, in the second part, lució totally stray, with absurd slips that denoted his inability to understand with Marcos Alonso, first, and Eric García, already in the final stretch with the eliminatory sentenced.

Marcos Alonso

It suffered to mark to Rodrygo and to Benzema during the 66 minutes that was in field. Unlike other parties, the ex defender of Chelsea lució very unsure when trying cover the spaces that left Balde in his confined by left. Without communication with Koundé, the Madrilenian completed his worst party of the season.

Alejandro Balde

The side brushed the goal in a pair of opportunities, the first of them beginning the party with an assistance to Rahpinha that Camavinga saved on the line of goal. His confined were the most dangerous of the Barça during all the party, although in defence was not lúcido. At the end, the Madrid did much more damage by right in the complement.

Sergio Busquets

The captain completed a good first part in which it administered the balloon with abstemiousness. However, it was left behind in the against that finished in the 0-1 and, in the complement, disappeared with the totally broken team in all his lines. It played the 90 minutes, but could not do absolutely at all to avoid the disaster.

Franck Kessié

The marfileño had had a good beginning of party, helping to Busquets in the recovery and administering balloons in the medullary to cut the game of the mediocentro white. Nevertheless, it committed a childish error demolishing to Vinicius in the area, already with the party 0-2. Benzema Converted the maximum penalty that cleared the party and the eliminatory grieve to the five minutes of the second part and Xavi removed him immediately by Ansu Fati.

Sergi Roberto

An unnecessary fault on Luka Modric cost him the yellow in the minute 10, something that conditioned him for the rest of the party. His tibieza in the mark to the Croat facilitated the things to the '10' to assist to Benzema in the played of the 0-2 in the 47' that finished for taking out to the Barça of the party. At the end, it played the 90 minutes, completing a very toneless party.


Again, the mediocentro was object of continuous provocations by part of the players of the Real Madrid from the beginning of the party. A 'rifirrafe' with Vinicius cost him the yellow in the minute 26. In the complement participated very little in attack and, in front of the disorder culé, could not avoid the hard fall that cost to remain out of the Glass.


The Brazilian was of more to less and finish losing the majority of particular duels with Eduardo Camavinga, to a large extent, thanks to the secondary work of Toni Kroos. With the French touched from the start, the German helped him with solvency, guessing the majority of played that tried Raphinha in the first part. In the complement had a very clear in which it preferred to finish before that enable to Benzema. Xavi removed him in the 66' by Ferran Torres.

Robert Lewandowski

Party very bitter for the '9'. A paradón of Courtois denied him the goal before the rest in the played that derived in the goal of Vinicius. In the second part had very little incidence and finish very annoying. It took bad decisions and erró several controls in the area, something that already begins to concern after the World-wide.

Ansu Fati

Totally inofensivo during the half hour that played. Xavi put him with the party 0-3 to look for the miracle, but the '10' was unable of revertir the bad game culé in the complement. It could be his last Classical if, finally, decides to go out in summer.

Eric García

Ingresó By Marcos Alonso and saw the yellow with scarce seconds in the field by an entrance to destiempo on Rodrygo. At the end, his return to the saga did not suppose a relief for the maltrecho bottom blaugrana and Benzema finish marking the chamber after a loss in the midfield that allowed to Vinicius comandar the against and assist to the '9'.

Ferran Torres

The '11' replaced to Raphinha, but participated much less that the Brazilian in offensive. At the end, it finish bumping with Camavinga in his attempts by desbordar by left. His entry did not suppose any improvement in the run over attack culé in the complement.
