Match between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, counting for Matchday 30 of La Liga.
Under pouring rain, the Clasico which opposed Real Madrid and FC Barcelona this Saturday night turned in favor of the capital club. Zinedine Zidane’s men defeated those of Ronald Koeman 2-1.
Karim Benzema opened the scoring with a cross from Lucas Vazquez with a brilliant heel (13th). Toni Kroos made the break with a direct free kick (28th), deflected first by Pedri and then by Jordi Alba. Oscar Mingueza reduced the mark (60th), then Barça pushed, even more after the expulsion of Casemiro (91st). But despite a last strike on the bar, no equalizer.
With now 66 points, Real Madrid return to the top of the standings alongside Atletico Madrid, which will face Betis Sevilla on Sunday.
