In the first leg Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 3-0, in a passionate match. During the next days, Madrid press exagerated the attitude of Barcelona's fans, and clamoured for an exceptional answer from Real Madrid supporters. The hostility of the fans (and some strange decisions of the referee) at the start of the second leg (some players of Barcelona said they "feared for their lifes") helped Real Madrid to win 8-0 at half time and 11-1 at the end of the match. Barcelona's president dismissed, and some months later Real Madrid's president Santiago Bernabéu offered his excuses.
