Final gasp attack helps Barcelona win El Clasico
Trapped in a bitterness arbitrator bribery scandalBarcelona beat Real Madrid, 2-1, on Sunday to stay 12 points ahead of the Spanish league table.
“It was a very important and well deserved win,” head coach Xavi speak the media later, adding, “We dominated.”
The Catalan club had a bad month – a month that began with being kicked out of the Europa League by Manchester United and then being accused by a Spanish court of corruption. If proven guilty in the bribery scandal, the club could be stripped of some La Liga titles retroactively.
El classic Couldn’t have started worse for Barcelona. The club fell behind in the ninth minute thanks to a ruthless own goal—Vini Jr. makes a neat shot towards the near post, only to have it miss Ronaldo Araujo’s head and go into his far corner.
The save was so strange that even Vini had to comfort Araujo after the goal.
