FULL-TIME, Real Madrid 4-1 Barcelona: An embarrassing defeat to their biggest rivals with the whole world watching. El Clásico was never a game from the start, and Barça have no answers right now.


71’ RED CARD: Barça are down to 10 men as Ronald Araujo is shown a second yellow for a foul on Vinicius and heads to the dressing room 20 minutes early.


64’ GOAL, Real Madrid 4-1 Barcelona (Rodrygo): Madrid make it a three-goal lead. Vinicius’ cross along the ground is intercepted by Kounde inside the box but the ball falls kindly to Rodrygo who fires it home.


SECOND HALF KICKOFF, Real Madrid 3-1 Barcelona: Back underway in Riyadh. Can Barça make a miracle comeback or will Madrid clinch the title?


HALFTIME, Real Madrid 3-1 Barcelona: Barça were stunned early, found a way to come back but were quickly down two goals again after a controversial penalty call. They have a mountain to climb in the second half, and Madrid will be ready to pounce on the counter-attack.


39’ GOAL, Real Madrid 3-1 Barcelona (Vinicius pen): Vinicius steps up to the spot and completes a first-half hat-trick to restore Madrid’s two-goal lead.


37’ PENALTY TO REAL MADRID: Vinicius goes down in the box after a challenge by Ronald Araujo and the referee immediately points to the spot.


33’ GOAL! Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona (Lewandowski): BARÇA ARE BACK IN IT! Alejandro Balde’s cross is headed away by Ferland Mendy but Robert Lewandowski is quickest to the rebound at the edge of the box and fires a spectacular volley past Andriy Lunin and into the net!


10’ GOAL, Real Madrid 2-0 Barcelona (Vinicius): Madrid double their lead. Dani Carvajal plays a long ball from the back to find the run of Rodrygo, and the Brazilian sets up Vinicius for an easy tap-in and his second goal in a span of three minutes.


7’ GOAL, Real Madrid 1-0 Barcelona (Vinicius): Real Madrid take the lead. A ball is played through by Jude Bellingham and Jules Kounde can’t intercept the pass which allows Vinicius Junior to run all alone, round Iñaki Peña and pass the ball into the net.

Matchday Thread Rules

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.

Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
