Real Madrid go top of La Liga after win over Barcelona in an El Clasico on a rainy evening at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.


Karim Benzema opened the scoring with a brilliant flick as he made it nine goals in seven La Liga matches.

The home side doubled their lead before half-time as a Toni Kroos' free-kick was deflected past Ter Stegen in goal for Barcelona.

Oscar Mingueza reduced the deficit with an improvised finish before Real Madrid's Casemiro was sent off after receiving a straight red card.

Barca came close to equalising but Ilaix Moriba's shot came back off the crossbar in injury time.

The result moves Real above City rivals Atletico Madrid because of their better head-to-head record.

Though Atletico can go back to the top with a win away at Real Betis on Sunday.

The managers' reaction


Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said: "I feel very happy. We started the game very well. It was a very complicated match overall, but it was a deserved victory.

"I think we could have scored a third goal, but it's an important win. We did our job today."


Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman said: "I think everyone who saw the game will see that we can be very unhappy with the result.

"I think we weren't good at all in the first 45 minutes. We weren't good in attack or in defence, but in the second half we improved.

"We need to be better when making key decisions. They're decisions that can cost us the game and in the end they did.

"I think we should have got a clear penalty towards the end, and I don't know why it wasn't reviewed by VAR."
