With their biggest El Clasico score line since 2018, La Blaugrana are on track to end their five-game La Liga losing streak against Los Blancos in the Spanish capital.

On the half-hour mark, Aubameyang set the ball rolling for the visitors, nodding home Ousmane Dembele’s excellent cross before Ronald Araujo hammered home the Frenchman’s corner.

Despite having a 2-0 lead at halftime, Barcelona pushed it up a notch in the second half, with Aubameyang turning provider to set up Ferran Torres for a third.

That goal basically ended any hopes of a comeback for the hosts, as Aubameyang made it four minutes later with a spectacular chip.

With a game in hand on their opponents, Barcelona will now move up to third place in the rankings with three points in Madrid.

While Carlo Ancelotti’s team started well, they went behind just before the half-hour mark when Aubameyang beat Eder Militao to a cross into the box from Ousmane Dembele.

Less than 10 minutes later, Ronald Araujo increased Barcelona’s lead by rising highest from a corner kick to force a header past Thibaut Courtois.

After a beautiful back-heel pass by Aubameyang to set up his colleague, Ferran Torres added his name to the scoring sheet three minutes into the second half, finishing high into the roof of the net.
