The Blaugrana stole the show in Madrid with a dominant performance that saw them stun the league leaders 4-0

Barcelona coach Xavi has earned high praise from fans while Real Madrid boss Carlos Ancelotti faces a backlash after his team fell to a 4-0 loss in Sunday's El Clasico.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's double and lone goals from Ronald Araujo and Ferran Torres helped Barcelona to grab their fifth straight win in La Liga.

It ended an historic outing for Aubameyang who only joined the Blaugrana in January and his performances continue to get him applause, even from Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala.

Sunday's win at the Santiago Bernabeu also sent out a strong message about Xavi's presence as the head of Barcelona's coaching crew which has been evident in their results.

Barca are on a 13-game unbeaten run in the Spanish top-flight since December 4.

Ancelotti, on the other hand, was heavily criticised for his tactical decisions on Sunday and some fans even suggested that he leave the club.

What are your thoughts? Is Aubameyang on his way to Barcelona greatness? Should Ancelotti get the boot? Can Blaugrana overhaul Real Madrid and win the La Liga title? Tell us in the comments below.
