There will be players more or less brilliant than others, but any has achieved yet what did Ronaldinho 14 years ago in the Bernabéu. How fast passes the time!
Along the last 15 years, are varied the goleadas and humiliations with which the FC Barcelona has punished to the Real Madrid in Santiago Bernabéu. The famous 2-6 that served to sentence a League, a 0-4 without Messi, a 0-3 in Glass of Rey... All they were magic, but the 0-3 attained by the Barça on 19 November 2005 has a special value.
The FC Barcelona had suffered some very hard years to sportive level, and the arrival of Ronaldinho Gaúcho -beside the one of other players- revitalizó to the team and contributed him the joy that needed from the first moment. The 0-3 of 2005, with Ronaldinho leaving portrayed to all the defence of the Real Madrid -especially to Sergio Bouquets- and marking a spectacular doublet, gave the turn to the world.
The image of the fans of the Real Madrid applauding to Ronaldinho in Santiago Bernabéu, like gesture of admiration to the Brazilian and protest watched against his team, is one of those scenes that will remain always recorded in the memory of the barcelonismo. That afternoon, the fans culé smiled of ear and ear and could boast to have in his rows to the best player of the world, and this that still there was not 'appeared' Leo Messi.
Ronaldinho Left in ridiculous to Sergio Bouquets with his two confined from the left band, adentrándose in the area and leaving nailed to the rest of defenders merengues to deceive to Iker Boxes. The madridistas criticise that the white defence could do more, but the reality is that little it could do in that moment to brake the magic of the Brazilian star, that went out in a torrent. It was like trying take the water with the hands.
The decline of the era of the 'galactic'
Already it does 14 years of that, but all remember it as if it was yesterday. The Barça of Eto'or, Deco, Gio, Puyol, Xavi and Ronaldinho gave a recital against the Real Madrid of the 'galactic', the one of Zidane, Ronaldo, Boxes, Guti, Beckham...
It was a turning point, the first big warning that the things had changed. From then, the FC Barcelona began to dominate without brake LaLiga Santander and, this same season 2005-06, would win also the UEFA Champions League in the final against the Arsenal. The end of a period, the merengue, and the birth of the Barcelona. And all this, insist, still without Leo Messi.
