Real Madrid vs Barcelona LIVE: El Clasico result and final score as hosts crumble after Aubameyang goal

Real Madrid 0-4 Barcelona: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice on a wonderful night for Xavi as the hosts were humbled at the Bernabeu

Xavi plots upset in El Clasico against La Liga leaders Real Madrid

Follow live reaction as Barcelona produced a sublime performance to stun rivals Real Madrid and claim a 4-0 win in El Clasico at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid came into the match well clear at the top of La Liga and 15 points ahead of Barcelona in the table, but the visitors produced their best performance of the season so far under new manager Xavi.

Former Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice on his first El Clasico appearance with Ferran Torres and Ronald Araujo also on target as Xavi’s side strenthened their Champions League qualification hoeps with a famous win.

Real Madrid, who were missing Karim Benzema, were a shambles defensively but Carlo Ancelotti’s side remain in control of the title race after second-place Sevilla dropped points for the third match in a row earlier on Sunday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the first player to be directly involved in three goals in his first appearance in El Clasico across all competitions in the 21st century (two goals and an assist).

He signed for Barcelona on a free in January!

I don’t think many people would have been expecting that result tonight. Barcelona were exceptional but they were helped along by a poor performance from Real Madrid. They looked all at sea without Karim Benzema to lead the line.

Full-time: Real Madrid 0 - 4 Barcelona

90+3 mins: There’s the final whistle. Barcelona’s unbeaten run goes on, they haven’t lost in 12 games and perhaps equally important they end a run of five defeats in El Clasico.

They pick up another three points and move up to third in LaLiga. 12 points behind leaders Real Madrid but with a game in hand.

90 mins: Three minutes of added time to play. Barcelona have demolished Real Madrid tonight. They’ve scored four and could easily have had six or seven. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been Madrid’s best player.

Dani Alves and Nico are then brought on by Xavi. Jordi Alba and Pedri are the two men replaced.
