World press amazed by Barça

As has become wonderfully common in recent times, the world was enchanted by Barça’s incredible win against Real Madrid.

Not only did the 5-0 result have a massive impact on the Catalan and Spanish press, where it made the headlines left, right and centre, but all around the planet the world’s media was stunned by such a convincing display in the clásico.

Sports press

Rout, humiliation and leaders”. ‘Mundo Deportivo’ simple went for ‘5-0’, the result of the incredible win against the all-whites. ‘El 9 Esportiu’ went for the header “And without abusing”.

Humiliation for Madrid in national papers

In Catalonia, ‘El Periódico de Catalunya’ was titled “Reality bath”, ‘La Vanguardia’ stated that “Barça humiliates Real Madrid with an exhibition of football”, and ‘Avui’ filled its front page with ‘5-0’. ‘Ara’, which came out for the first time on Sunday, also included Barça v Madrid by asking “And now what?”.

Examples from elsewhere in Spain included ‘La Razón’ (“Barça wins by absolute majority”) and ‘El Mundo’ (“Barcelona humiliate Madrid once again”).

From Portugal to Argentina

Real Mouto!” (a play on the Italian for ‘mute’. On the other side of the Atlantic, Argentina’s ‘Clarín’ (“Barcelona dance and rout in the clásico”) and ‘Olé’ (“Mourirte de risa” (die laughing, again playing with the name of the Madrid coach) were just two of the papers that praised the job done by Guardiola and his men.
