Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick as Barcelona heaped more pressure on Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui with a 5-1 thrashing at the Nou Camp. Suarez has scored nine goals against Real Madrid!
Barcelona took full advantage of Real Madrid‚Äôs dreadful first-half display at Camp Nou, setting the stage for a Clasico triumph on Sunday.
Luis Suarez hit a hat-trick as Julen Lopetegui‚Äôs dismal Real Madrid reign appeared to near its end in a 5-1 Clasico humiliation at the hands of Barcelona.
Former Spain boss Lopetegui was said to be on the brink of the sack after losing to Levante last week and he cut a disheartened figure on the Camp Nou touchline as Madrid were dismantled in his 14th game in charge.
The irrepressible Suarez led Barca, who were rampant even without Lionel Messi and capitalised on their rivals‚Äô failings to move back to the top of LaLiga.
Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring for the champions and Suarez doubled their advantage in a devastating first-half showing, with Marcelo‚Äôs response shortly after the restart merely a small bump in the road.
Suarez executed a magnificent header and then a gorgeous dinked finish, before Arturo Vidal added the fifth to prompt a party in the stands as Lopetegui, whose side remain ninth, shuffled towards the exit door.
