Real Madrid ended their two-game slide by winning El Clasico on Saturday, taking down Barcelona on the road 3-1. It was a game that Real controlled and looked very sharp, especially in the second half.
The Blaugrana were on top when Lenglet’s misstep handed Madrid complete control. The foul – one of three from the Barca defender – initially went undetected, but Ramos was always likely to make the most of such contact in the box and it proved costly.
