Unfortunately for Barcelona, the comeback never materialized as they started showing all the signs of rust that had seen them go down from their traditional top rankings in the table. Even when Ronald Koeman brought on Philippe Coutinho on for Óscar Mingueza, it failed to have the desired effect.

In order to press and attack even more, Barca switched to a 4-2-3-1 formation, but by this time, Madrid had settled into a rhythm. With a goal already in their favor, they were content to sit back and wait for the opportunity to counterattack, which eventually came.

But it was too little too late for the home team as they crashed to another defeat.

For some of the fans, it was one loss too many as they voiced their disapproval and asked for an end to the largely unsuccessful era of Ronald Koeman.
