De El Clásico-editie van woensdagavond was vooral heel erg tam en teleurstellend. FC Barcelona en Real Madrid speelden met 0-0 gelijk tegen elkaar en de fans op Twitter weten wel waar het aan ontbrak: een vleugje Cristiano Ronaldo.
#ElClasico misses Cristiano Ronaldo. Everyone misses the CR7 x Leo Messi rivalry. Times were different.— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) December 18, 2019
#ElClasico lost it's value when the Ronaldo factor was taken away. Even "Inter vs Juventus" now has more hype. Sigh!— Omoniyi Israel (@_omoissy) December 18, 2019
I feel like real madrid lacks that ronaldo thing. #ElClasico— Chief Erican (@EricanSA) December 18, 2019
#ElClasico really isn’t what it used to be— Nick (@Nick_Talks7) December 18, 2019
No more Ronaldo vs Messi aside, remember Mourinho Madrid vs Pep Barcelona?
Some of the most intense, entertaining games I’ve witnessed. Seemingly every El Clasico was a classic match. Reminiscent of early 2000’s Clasicos pic.twitter.com/mMKwpCw1o7
Apparently, Ronaldo is bigger than #ElClasico— Elemoh (@Iam_lordmayor) December 18, 2019
Feels like there’s something missing from #ElClasico nowadays.— LDN ⚽️ (@LDNFootbalI) December 18, 2019
During the Pep/Josè and Messi/Ronaldo days the world of football would stop to watch. We were lucky to witness that era of the rivalry. Doesn’t have the same intensity now.
