Setien Defeats Real Madrid Again

Former Barcelona manager Quique Setien has defeated Real Madrid again after coming back from a 2-1 deficit.

It was not an ideal week for Barcelona as they were thrashed by Real 4-0 this weekend at the Copa Del Rey. The result knocked them out of the competition shattering their hopes of securing a domestic treble.

But the recent defeat of the Los Blancos against the yellow submarines would somewhat ease Barca’s pain. Setien who had already beaten Madrid at home completed the double at Bernabeu on Saturday night.

Pau Torres scored the first goal of the match as an own goal with Samuel Chukwueze equalizing for the visitors. Vinicius then scored a brilliant solo goal at the start of the second half. But Luis Morales and Chukwueze again ensured 3 points for the visitors with a stunning strike in the 80th minute.

Real Madrid were stunned in their home ground with no time left to react. This result will hurt the Los Blancos even more as they are practically out of the title race now.

A win tonight would give Barca a strong 15 points lead at the top of the table. If the Blaugranas manage to win tonight, they would be one step closer to their 27th LaLiga title.
