El Clasico is always massive news, but Barcelona stole all the headlines with their 5-1 thrashing of Real Madrid on Sunday.

Here’s a look at how it went down in the Spanish press:

Mundo Deportivo go with ‘Lethal Manita’ with a picture of Gerard Pique celebrating Barcelona’s five goals

Sport’s headline is ‘To the street” with a picture of Luis Suarez. They talk about how Barcelona inflicted La Manita on Real Madrid and hastened the departure of manager Julen Lopetegui

Marca reckon it’s not just Julen Lopetegui’s fault and report how Antonio Conte has been called to replace him.

AS reckon it’s a Lethal Win for Barcelona. They also point out how Los Blancos are now ninth in the table, seven points behind Ernesto Valverde’s side

La Vanguardia report how Barcelona swept past Real Madrid to condemn Lopetegui along with a picture of Pique celebrating.
