This year marks the 20th anniversary of FC Barcelona’s Dream Team 5-0 victory over Real Madrid. Since then, the two power houses of Spain have exchanged their dominance over La Liga, with the rise and fall of the Galacticos, the re-emergence of the Dream Team through Frank Rijkaard and Pep Guardiola’s squads, the arrival of Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to prime time and, of course, the drama surrounding Mourinho and his entourage.
20 years full of emotions and defining moments, that will be remain in the history of the sport forever, and one connecting story line: great matches played at Camp Nou.
Here’s a list of the top five Barcelona vs Real Madrid in the last 20 years:
La Liga 1993-1994
Barcelona 5-0 Real Madrid: The last year Johan Cruyff’s Dream Team played together, and perhaps the pinnacle of the team. A squad with Romario, Laudrup, Stoitchkov and Koeman, plus Guardiola, Nadal, Zubizarreta, complete thrashed another one with Zamorano, Prosinecki, Hagi, Hierro, Marin Vazquez, Michel and Butragueño. It was the end of an era for Real Madrid, and also the high-point for a Barça squad that just months later would lose 4-0 in Athens to AC Milan in the Champions League final and also get dismantled. A hat-trick by Romario, and then the goals by Koeman and Ivan Iglesias, set the final score.
