Highlights of Real Madrid vs Barcelona U10's is going seriously viral, the standard is insane
| Last updated
Footage from the so-called 'mini-El Clasico' has racked up over 12 million views and counting this weekend, with many fans impressed by the "insane" standards on show.
Barcelona, a club with one of the most prestigious youth academies in world football, recently came up against Real Madrid with their U10 side.
From the very first minute, Los Blancos made their intentions clear by playing out from the back. In fact, after the full-back produced a marauding run, talented midfielder Hugo Fernandez slotted away with ease.
Soon, the Madrid number 10, who was being compared to Luka Modric by many in the comments section, would steal the show with his individual runs and impressive close control.
One fan commented: "That boy wearing number 10 for us will go far. He's a baller," while another wrote: "Luka Modric knows he’s about to retire soon, so he did us the courtesy of providing us his clone."
Check out the footage below.
Although La Masia were beaten by the better team on the day, Barcelona certainly made them work for it.
With 15 minutes on the clock, Barca's number 10 whipped a free-kick over the Madrid wall from distance and into the net – a goal that earned comparisons to Lionel Messi, of all people.
Here's how fans on Twitter reacted to the footage.
One said: "If you ever saw an u10's football match you will know how crazy this video is," while another commented: "More technical security and spatial awareness from our u10 fullbacks than Carvajal last season."
A third wrote: "This is absolutely insane. If you think about the fact that there's a really high chance that Real Madrid's #10 here doesn't make it as a professional footballer, and he's already MILES better than any of us, how are there people on here thinking they'd get 10g/a in the PL?"
A fourth said: "10 year olds with this level of technique, skills, IQ, tactical awareness & discipline, decisiveness, execution, precision etc. We have professionals in our first division who can't even play like this. There's lineouts every 10 passes for some teams in the PSL."
A fifth added: "That no.10 has to be Modric's kid.... it's not even the uncanny resemblance... that's a carbon copy."
Madrid would go on to win the match 4-1, with Man of the Match contender Fernandez grabbing a brace, but we can safely assume that both sides have first-team potential in their ranks.
