Real Madrid have been at their best in El Clásico for 56 years after overtaking Barcelona during the desperate injury time finish at LaLiga on Sunday at Camp Nou.
Los Blancos saw off Braugrana thanks to his first goal at David Alaba’s club and the finish of Lucas Vazquez later in the game. Then Sergio Aguero robbed 97 minutes of comfort.
As a result, Carlo Ancelotti’s team returned to the Riga Summit and set records on both sides of each club’s divide.
What has Madrid achieved?
By recording another victory, visitors have now recorded four consecutive victories in their renowned fixtures with Barca to back up the growing run in the first half of 2020.
At that time, after a 0-0 reversal in the first half of the campaign in the second half finish of Vini Jr. and Mariano Diaz, he gave Los Blancos a second half victory in LaLiga in March.
In the midst of the 2020-21 season, Madrid won 3-1 from home and then 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu, scoring three wins. Victory quartet.
Koeman makes an unwanted history
But on the other side of the tie, Braugrana’s underfire coach notched another statistic he would rather have avoided.
The Dutch, who lost to Madrid again, became the second manager to lose the first three classic games. It’s the first loss since 1940.
Only Patrick O’Connell, who led the club between 1935 and 1940, has the same distinction that he failed to win in the first three attempts.
