5 Headlines from Barcelona’s 1-0 Copa Win vs. Real Madrid | Own Goal Decides Lackluster El Clásico

El Clásico is usually the stage for incredible moments and incredible memories. No one told Barcelona or Real Madrid this time, as neither giant brought their best. Barça’s lowest bout of possession in more than 15 years sums up a one-sided affair that was won on an own goal by the team without the ball or their best players. If anyone deserves credit, it’s Frenkie de Jong in the middle, and the stellar back five, counting ter Stegen. Ronald Araujo’s work on Vinicius Jr. will go down as the match-up of the game. An unlikely 1-0 win at the Santiago Bernabeu leaves everything to play for in the second leg.
