Josep Guardiola's FC Barcelona thrash Mourinho's Real Madrid on the Club's 111th anniversary
Guardiola’s team celebrated FC Barcelona’s 111th anniversary with a brilliant victory over Cristiano Ronaldo and Mourinho’s Real Madrid. All pre-match estimates pointed to a close and hard-fought game, but Barça outplayed Real Madrid from the start. The Catalans were up 2-0 up at the break, and Guardiola’s men came out swinging in the second half. Two sublime goals from David Villa and a fifth from Jeffren capped off a perfect night at the Camp Nou.

December 13 2008. Round 15 League2008/09.
Pep Guardiola’s arrival in the 2008/09 was to mark a whole new era as his team redefined the game with their fantasy football. This game looked as if Barça should win it at a stroll, but a solid Madrid defence kept them out until the last ten minutes after Eto’o missed a penalty on 69, but the Cameroon striker made amends with a goal seven minutes from the end of the game when he latched onto a corner from Xavi which was headed on by Puyol. Leo Messi got the second in injury time when he rounded off a quick counter.
FC Barcelona: Valdés, Alves, Márquez, Puyol, Abidal, Touré, Xavi (Keita, 91’), Gudjohnsen (Busquets, 63’), Messi, Eto’o (Hleb, 88’), Henry.

November 20 2004. Round 12 2004/05 League.
After five years without a title, Barça then found their form again under Frank Rijkaard, whose team marched on to victory despite a rash of injuries, which left Motta, Gabri and Edmilson out for quite a while. Against a conservative Madrid, who failed to get a single shot on target, Barça came out of the blocks determined to take the game by the scruff of its neck. Eto’o opened the scoring after a mix up between Casillas and Roberto Carlos, but although the two second half goals ensured a satisfying win, the bad news for Rijkaaard was another long term injury, this time to Larsson.
FC Barcelona: Valdés, Belletti (Damià, 73’), Puyol, Oleguer, Van Bronckhorst, Márquez, Deco, Xavi (Sylvinho, 86’), Larsson (Iniesta, 72’), Ronaldinho, Eto’o.

February 14 1999. Round 22 1998/99 League.
Barça dominated the 1998/99 league campaign, although under Van Gaal they were more effective than brilliant- Madrid were not enjoying a great season and the game between the two at the Camp Nou was easily dominated by the home team. Luis Enrique scored an early opener heading in a cross from Kluivert and on 20 minutes Roberto Carlos was sent off for a bad foul on Figo. Luis Enrique then got his second with another header before Rivaldo finished off the visitors with the third after a great bit of control with his heel.
FC Barcelona: Hesp, R. de Boer, Abelardo, F. de Boer, Sergi (Roger, 89’), Guardiola, Luis Enrique (Òscar, 86’), Cocu, Figo, Kluivert, Rivaldo.

January 8 1994. Round 18 1993/94 League.
Barça had had a mixed season in the 1993/94 league, but on the night of January 8th 1994 they were clearly superior to Madrid , banging five goals past their great rivals. The goals came in all forms, with the most famous being Romario’s brilliant move to dump Alkorta on the ground. Following a trade mark free kick from Koeman, the Brazilian rounded off his hat trick before Iván rounded off the night with goal number five. Deportivo moved into a strong position at the top of the table soon after, but after a dramatic final day, it was Barça who again took the title.

September 5, 1992. Round 1 League 1992/93
Unusually, in 1993/93 Barça met Real Madrid on the very first day of the championship. Despite Bakero’s early goal, the visitors managed to stay in contention and drew level through a second half penalty from Míchel. But Barça clinched the win with a late Stoichkov goal when the Bulgarian latched onto a Jaro rebound off his own initial shot. The way the season panned out was amazingly similar to the one before, with Barça once again snatching the title on the very last day thanks to a Real Madrid defeat in Tenerife.
FC Barcelona: Zubizarreta, Ferrer, Guardiola (Amor, 66’), Koeman, Juan Carlos, Bakero, Eusebio, Stòixkov, Laudrup, Nadal, Begiristain (Goikoetxea, 40’).

March 7, 1992. Round 25 League 1991/92.
After getting the 1991/92 league season off to a poor start, Barça had been eight points behind Real Madrid, and that in the days when wins were still only worth two points. But Cruyff’s side did not throw in the towel. They started cutting down that margin to the extent that by the time they played the clásico at the Camp Nou, the difference was down to just one. That wasn’t the best of days, because Koeman’s converted free kick was cancelled out by a lucky Hierro goal. But it all ended happily. Madrid lost on the final day in Tenerife and Barça won the title at the very last gasp.
FC Barcelona: Zubizarreta, Nando, Guardiola, Koeman, Juan Carlos (Cristóbal, 48’), Eusebio, Nadal, Stòixkov, Laudrup (Goikoetxea, 74’), Amor, Begiristain.

January 19, 1991. Round 19 League 1990/91.
Under the management of Johan Cruyff, Barcelona had come to be known as the Dream Team and were on good course for the first of four consecutive championships. In that 1990/91 season, Real Madrid were engulfed in crisis, and it was Atlético rather than Real who were challenging FCB for the title. But the all-whites still managed to post an admirable performance at the Camp Nou and were only beaten by an unlucky own goal from Spasic. Barça went on to win the title with two points more than the mattress-makers, just the start of one of the most glorious periods in club history.
FC Barcelona: Zubizarreta, Nando, Alexanco, Eusebio, Serna, Bakero (Ferrer, 75’), Goikoetxea, Soler, Laudrup, Amor, Begiristain (Salinas, 60’).

December 30, 1984. Round 18 League 1984/85.
The Liga title returned to the Camp Nou for the first time in eleven years. Led by English coach Terry Venables, Barça were far superior to any of their opponents. Following this win over Real Madrid, the championship title seemed only a matter of time. The game had a bit of everything, with Víctor sent off and Valdano having a goal disallowed. It was all decided by two cracking goals from Migueli and Esteban, the first from a header that bounced on the ground before crossing the line and the other following a frantic solo run and some exquisite ball control.
FC Barcelona: Urruti, Gerardo, Migueli, Julio Alberto, Víctor, Alexanco, Carrasco (Calderé, 82’), Schuster, Rojo, Archibald, Esteban.
Entrenador: Terry Venables.
Reial Madrid: Miguel Ángel, Chendo, Camacho, Stielike, San José, Gallego, Sanchís, Butragueño, Isidro, Salguero (Santillana, 61’), Valdano.

December 28, 1975. Round 15 League 1975/76.
There was an unusual atmosphere at the Barça v Madrid match on December 28, 1975. Francisco Franco had died on November 30 and Madrid president Santiago Bernabéu had spoken about how he had fought in the Spanish Civil War with the fascist troops that occupied Catalonia. A group of Catalan activists, inspired by Joan Granados and Jaume Rosell, organised a display of one thousand Catalan flags, which were able to fly in the stadium for the first time since 1939. Barça won 2-1 thanks to a miraculous last minute goal from Rexach.

October 26, 1958. Round 7 League 1958/59.
Back in the days of the legendary HH, Helenio Herrera, Barça’s controversial but ingenious manager was out to thwart the supremacy in Spain of the Di Stéfano inspired Madrid. The Camp Nou was the venue for an amazing display, with playmaker Kubala performing brilliantly and Evaristo on a veritable goalscoring spree. His second goal was especially memorable, in which he dribbled around Lesmes and Alonso before converting from the narrowest of angles. But the wonderful performance was blighted by red cards for both Czibor and Santamaría. Barça went on to win the title, scoring 96 goals in 30 games.
FC Barcelona: Ramallets, Olivella, Rodri, Gràcia, Flotats, Segarra, Tejada, Kubala, Evaristo, Suárez, Czibor.
Entrenador: Helenio Herrera.
Real Madrid: Alonso, Marquitos, Santamaría, Lesmes II, Santisteban, Zárraga, Kopa, Rial, Di Stéfano, Puskas, Gento.
Entrenador: Luis Antonio Carniglia.

March 2, 1952. Round 25 League 1951/52.
It was the season of the Five Cups, won by a formidable team based around Hungarian superstar Ladislau Kubala. The league was won thanks to victories such as this against a determined Real Madrid side at Les Corts. It was a spectacular game decided thanks to César Rodríguez’s effectiveness in front of goal, resulting in a hat trick consisting of two headers and a solo effort in which he weaved his way through two defenders. Five matches later Barça clinched the title with a three point lead over Athletic Bilbao.
FC Barcelona: Velasco, Martín, Biosca, Seguer, Gonzalvo III, Bosch, Basora, César, Vila, Kubala, Manchón.
