Barcelona went into the second leg of the Copa Del Generalísimo, which is what the Copa Del Rey was known as under Francisco Franco's dictatorship, with a 3-0 lead. Real Madrid won the second leg with a flabbergasting 11-1 win, leading 8-0 at the break. The general’s men had supposedly threated the Barcelona players to lose the game or they’d be imprisoned along with their families. The referee was completely in Madrid’s favour, supposedly due to similar threats. Whistles were distributed at the entrances to magnify the atmosphere. Although it is claimed that general Franco hugely helped out Real Madrid, Madrid lost the final to local rivals Atletico Madrid. Real did not win the La Liga until the 1953-54 season, raising questions of the aid they received.

Barcelona looked completely out of sorts as Ronaldinho failed to have an impact and Casillas made a few terrific saves. In the later stages of the game, Barcelona surprisingly looked to cross the ball into the box, hoping a teammate could get on the end of it. This was Ronaldinho and Frank Rijkaard’s last season with Barcelona.

As they pressed to equalize, things went from bad to worse for the Catalans as substitute, Steve McManaman immediately doubled the advantage in injury time. Real Madrid progressed to the final after drawing the second leg in the Bernebeu and went on to win the European Cup.

Real Madrid celebrated winning the Spanish league title by humiliating Barcelona in the El Clásico derby. It was a miserable night from start to finish for Barcelona and their beleaguered coach Frank Rijkaard. Before the match started at the Bernabeu, Barcelona, in compliance with Spanish tradition, formed a guard of honour and magnanimously clapped their traditional rivals on to the pitch. The night ended with Xavi seeing red in injury time. Until date, this has been Real Madrid’s last win over Barcelona in the La Liga. The humiliation saw a transition at the Camp Nou as it was the last season of Brazilian ace Ronaldinho as well as Dutch manager, Frank Rijkaard.
