Fourth 5-0 win over the eternal rival

Jordi Clos

Tonight’s brutal thrashing of Real Madrid definitively marks this Barça team as a worthy successor to Johan Cruyff’s Dream Team, the last Barça team to beat Madrid 5-0, a result that’s now been recorded four times.

Nearly 17 years after Cruyff’s team’s 5-0, Barça have done it again. Guardiola’s men, who beat Madrid 2-6 on that wonderful night a year and a half ago, tonight equalled the Dream Team’s fantastic win as they surged towards the fourth successive league title of the Cruyff/Rexach era.

Romario’s magic

The wonderful mosaic at the Nou Camp, Romario’s spectacular dribbling for the first goal and the ecstatic reaction of Cruyff’s assistant Tony Bruins Slot from that night will always stay in the memory and the link between them? Pep Guardiola who was the mastermind on the pitch for that win and again from the bench for tonight’s.

First two won in black and white

The other two 5-0 results were way back in the early part of the 20th century. In 1935 Ventolrà (4) and Escolà were the scorers, whilst ten years later, Barça’s five cup winning team in the making did it again with goals from César (2), Bravo, Escolà and Gonzalvo III..
Fourth 5-0 win over the eternal rival
0-5 at the Bernabéu
In addition to the 5-0 wins at the Nou Camp, Barça have also celebrated the same score at the Bernabeu. That result came on a memorable day in the 1973-74 season when Rinus Michel’s team led by Johan Cruyff in all his pomp took a massive step to the League title the club had so desperately been waiting for with another great exhibition of football. Asensi (2), Cruyf, Juan Carlos and Sotil were the scorers on that occasion.
