Let’s take a look back at two of the greatest El Clasico results. On June 13, 1943, Real Madrid, one of La Liga’s giants at the time, defeated Barcelona 11-1 in a humiliating match.
7 years later, on September 24, 1950, Barcelona, another Spanish giant, avenged this result by defeating Madrid 7-2.
Real Madrid hosted Barcelona at their home on June 13, 1943, for the second leg of the Copa Del Generalismo semi-final.
In the first leg, Barcelona defeated Real Madrid by a score of 3 to 0, in a match in which Madrid players were whistled and booed by Barcelona fans due to political issues. Madrid fans had waited for the Barcelona players in the second leg.
The Madrid fans not only whistled and booed them, but they were also pelted with objects. They had no choice but to play an absent-minded game in light of the threats they allegedly received from the police and the head of security.
It was even claimed that the Barcelona goalkeeper had to move away from his goal post to avoid being pelted with objects.
Real Madrid has now scored two goals in less than 30 minutes. They were already up 8 goals to 0 by the end of the first half.
They were 11-0 up in the second half until Barcelona scored in the 89th minute. It’s worth noting that Real Madrid had two goals disallowed for offside.
The outcome of this match was the best result Real Madrid has ever had against Barcelona.
More than anything else, Barcelona would want to avenge this match by scoring as many goals as they could against Real Madrid.
It wasn’t possible/likely until 7 years later, on September 24, 1950, in a La Liga match in which Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 7-2. This is also the highest score they have ever achieved against Real Madrid.
