In the first one Barcelona beat Real Madrid 6-5 at the Camp Now. However, before the start of this match, los blancos had a two point advantage over Barça in the league. This match was played in the Santiago Bernabeu stadium (Madrid).

Luikal scored for FC Barcelona in the first minute of the game, but the goal was cancelled because the referee judged that he was offside when Ozora Tsubasa passed him the ball. Tsubasa scored shortly aftewards with an Olympic goal (directly from a corner kick), but the goal was also erased from the scoreboard because of a fault in the area. Later on Rivaul scored assisted by Tsubasa, and this time the goal was deemed valid.

Natureza tied the game in the 22nd minute in a counterattack started by Real Madrid’s goalkeeper Callusias. In the 30th minute Rail found the back of the net, but he was offside and the goal (and Natureza’s assist) was not conceded.

At the beginning of the second half Gordoba Gonzales got a yellow card. Makelolo was also booked in the 75th minute. After this, coach Van Saal decided to replace Xavii and Luis Empoli with Cotu and Overus, switching his 4-1-4-1 formation for a more aggressive 4-2-1-3, moving Rivaul up forward and leaving Tsubasa as the only offensive playmaker.

However, in the 80th minute Natureza scored again assisted by Roberto Carolus. Right after this goal, Real Madrid’s coach Vicente Delpasque replaced Marientos and Makelolo for Gati and Samuela, sacrificing a forward in favour of a reinforced defensive midfield, now consisting of three players (Flavio Conces, Gati and Samuela) tasked with guarding Tsubasa. Moreover, in the 87th minute defender Sergio Ramon came into the pitch replacing Fago, to further reinforce defence.

Regardless of Real Madrid’s efforts to keep the score unchanged, Tsubasa managed to score in loss time (92th minute) assisted by Rivaul. With the final score of 2-2, Barcelona remained two points below of Real Madrid in the standings, still in the fight for La Liga.
