Real Madrid demolish Barcelona in European Clasico
The tie between the two giants of Spanish basketball was hardly a contest as the 2014-15 winners of the Euro League ran riot against a banged-up Barcelona side.
Real Madrid are very serious about reclaiming the Euro League title they lost to CSKA Moscow last season and showed it with a 102-63 demolition of Barcelona last night in the north east of Spain.
It was the biggest victory Real Madrid have had over Barcelona in Euro League action, topping the 100-62 effort during the competition's FInal Four action in London back in 2013 by one point.
Sergio LLull keeps himself in the conversation for MVP consideration with a 20 point, 7 assist game while Tyrese Rice's 23 points and 5 assists was not enough to even register on Real Madrid's scale.
"I am very proud of my players," said Real Madrid's head coach, Pablo Laso, after the game.
Despite the fact that Barcelona are missing several names from their roster, this is a considerable beatdown and they will need to reroup as they face Galatasaray in Round 9 in Turkey while Madrid play Unics Kazan in Madrid.
