Sunday’s Clásico was an excruciatingly tight game of football that either side could have won. Over the 90 minutes, neither team was clearly superior to the other.
Real Madrid beat Barcelona in a new-look El Clasico to briefly go top of La Liga and leave Ronald Koeman’s side down in eighth in the table.

⚽️ FULL HIGHLIGHTS:
Barcelona, in front of over 86,000 fans, put in a limp performance – with Real keeper Thibaut Courtois only making one save all afternoon.
As expected, Barça started the game playing the possession game, with Real Madrid always ready to pounce on the counter, but it took some time for any of that to produce much in the way of real drama.
