‘Super unlucky’ Barcelona own goal vs Real Madrid creates new El Clasico record

Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo set a new record with a 'super unlucky' own goal against Real Madrid on Sunday evening.

Los Blancos took the lead when Araujo's header took the ball past a stranded Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Real had been trying to work the ball into the box when a ball was whipped into the box that deflected off Araujo's head.

The ball changed direction enough to leave Ter Stegen stranded as the ball flew into the net near the front post. And it was the first own goal scored in El Clasico in the 21st century – and the first in all competitions since Gerard Pique in the Spanish Supercup in 2017.

One fan tweeted: "So unlucky man. Araujo own goal on a deflection when we were dominating up until that point. Such a s*** goal. Need to bounce back!"

"Araujo actually kept Vini quiet again but that one unlucky deflection people are gonna drag him," a second added. While a third wasn't as sympathetic: "Araujo was unlucky but you can't be making mistakes like that in a Clasico…"

And a fourth said: "What an unlucky own goal from Araujo, we have to go at them even stronger now."

Sergi Roberto fired Barcelona level moments before the half-time whistle, saving Araujo's blushes as the two sides went down the tunnel.

However, Real thought they had won the game late on when Marco Asensio found the net, but VAR ruled the strike offside.

Instead, it was Barcelona, through Franck Kessie, in the dying moments of the clash who netted a winner.
