Real Madrid 11 - 1 Barcelona[edit]

In 1943, Barcelona faced Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the 1943 Copa del Generalísimo. The first leg match, played at Barcelona's Les Corts stadium in Catalonia, ended with Barcelona winning 3–0.[1] Before the second leg in Madrid, Count of Mayalde, Spain's head of state security, visited the Barcelona team just before kick-off warning them, “Do not forget that some of you are only playing because of the generosity of the regime that has forgiven you for your lack of patriotism.”[2][3]

At the second leg, within the first half an hour Madrid were three goals up and Barcelona capitulated as Madrid added to their tally to make it 8-0 before half-time with goals in the 33rd, 35th, 39th, 43rd and 49th minutes.[2] At half-time Barcelona were reluctant to come out for the second half.[1] Madrid dominated and scored three more, winning the game 11-1 (11-4 on aggregate).[1][4] A newspaper called the scoreline "as absurd as it was abnormal".[1]
