El Clasico: Lucas Vazquez's showboating with Real Madrid 4-0 down goes viral

Real Madrid were truly outclassed by Barcelona in El Clasico on Sunday evening.

Real welcomed their fierce rivals to the Santiago Bernabeu as the heavy favourites.

Los Blancos have been flying high recently. They went into the game on a five-game winning streak, which included an incredible comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

They were 15 points better off than Barca going into the match and would have fancied their chances of extending that gap even further.

But they were second best throughout as they were shocked 4-0.

Goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2), Ronald Araujo and Ferran Torres condemned Real to a heavy and embarrassing defeat in front of their own fans.

Aubameyang’s second goal in the 51st minute effectively sealed the points for Barca and ensured a humiliating final 40 minutes for Real.

But, despite being four goals down and having very little chance of a comeback, that didn’t stop Lucas Vazquez deciding to showboat.

The Spaniard started the game off on the bench. He was introduced to the game in the 63rd minute as he replaced Nacho.

And, shortly after coming on, he pulled off some showboating.

The ball was cleared to Vazquez and he chested the ball in the air before flicking the ball over his head. Watch the moment below…

You’ve got to hand it to Vazquez. His side were four goals down and taking a pasting but that didn’t stop him pulling out some unnecessary trickery.

The clip has gone viral having attracted over 2.8k retweets at the time of writing. View some reaction below…

Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the media after the game and he took all the blame for Real’s defeat.

“We were not recognisable, everything went wrong. I told the players that [the defeat] was my fault,” Ancelotti said during his post-match interview, per Marca.

“I don’t want to make excuses. We played very badly and we approached the game very badly.

“We have time to gather our energy and prepare for the last two months of the season to win trophies. We would have done what we needed to do so far: nine points ahead of [Sevilla in] second and into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

“I’m very sad about the defeat, I’m sorry for the fans, but I have to be calm.”
