Real Madrid 0 – Barcelona 3
Surely the only way Barcelona may fail to lose the Spanish title this season is if they suffer an incredible second half of the season implosion.
Barcelona are a shoo-in to win the title after they beat Real Madrid in the first El Clasico of the campaign. And it wasn’t even much of a contest.
Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal ruled out in just the second minute for offside. That’s as close as Los Blancos came to scoring.
In the second half Luis Suarez scored his 10th goal of the season to fire Barca ahead.
The key moment came in the 63rd minute. Daniel Carvajal was sent off for saving a shot with his hands, and Leo Messi scored from the spot.
Aleix Vidal scored a late third for Barcelona to add gloss to the scoreline.
Angel Di Maria’s Real Madrid ‘betrayal’
On Sunday, former Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria stands accused of betraying Real Madrid.
Di Maria now plies his trade with PSG, although their are rumours he could be about to leave Paris.
Is the noodle looking for a move to Barcelona in the January transfer window?
The Argentine international has caused a stir on social media in the aftermath of El Clasico for a handful of ‘likes’ on Instagram.
Angel Di Maria ‘liked’ a group of photos of Barcelona’s stars celebrating their 3-0 win at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Of course, Di Maria may well have just been sending out a congratulations to his international team mate Leo Messi through his ‘likes’.
Yet his social media activity has riled his former Madrid supporting fanbase.
