Barcelona forward Ferran Torres has said that his side’s 4-0 win over Real Madrid in a La Liga game during the 2021-22 season is the best game of his career, adding that it was a unique moment for everyone at the club.

Real Madrid, who won the league in the previous season by an impressive 13-point margin, went into the game with a rather unique approach. With the league title all but sealed, Carlo Ancelotti decided to line his men in a 4-2-4 formation, with Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr, Luka Modric and Federico Valverde leading the line.

Barcelona opened the scoring through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 29th minute before defender Ronald Araujo made it 2-0 a few minutes before the break.

Barcelona continued the charge even in the second period and this time it was Torres who scored to put his team 3-0 in front. Aubameyang put the cherry on top in the 51st minute as the Blaugrana emerged 4-0 victorious away from home.

While the result was indeed positive for Barcelona, the defeat did not impact Madrid much in the league. That win at Santiago Bernabeu proved to be the catalyst for the Catalans as they finished second with 73 points, two points more than third-placed Atletico Madrid.

Speaking about the victory, Torres remembered Barcelona’s celebration in the dressing room and said (h/t MARCA), “One of the best nights of my life [the Madrid win], in football terms.” 

“I scored the third goal against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu and at a delicate moment when there was a blow to the table… It was an incredible game. A unique moment. You just had to see how we celebrated in the dressing room.”

Real Madrid came back to haunt Barcelona in the ongoing season as they won the first El Clasico of the 2022-23 campaign, with Karim Benzema, Federico Valverde and Rodrygo scoring in a 3-1 win.

Barcelona will get a chance to avenge the defeat on March 19 when the two sides collide at Camp Nou next year. Before that, however, the two teams could come face-to-face in the Spanish Super Cup next month.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
