The series ended in an even two draws and one victory each, a rather odd conclusion to an overhyped event.
At this point Real Madrid has earned the more valuable victory, defeating FC Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final and winning their first silverware since 2008.
But then again, Florentino Perez didn’t make these massive investments to win the domestic trophy. I’m implying that la decimal, the 10th Champions League trophy, was/is on all Madridistas minds. Hence, the exit at the hands of FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals must overshadow their recent Copa success.
The Clasico series was anything but classic or watchable. If anything, the reputation of both sides has been stained.
However, there are some players who emerged from this intense series with their reputation intact while some others have hurt theirs.
