Rarely do you see an El Classico end this way, one team thoroughly outclass the other. Luis Suarez scored a brace while Neymar and Iniesta chipped in with one goal each. It could easily have been 6 or 7 for Barcelona but some desperate defence saved Real the blushes.
Suarez opened the account early by scoring at the 18th minute. Despite a few feeble attempts, Madrid was not able to penetrate the Barca defence and Neymar increased the lead at the 38th minute. After the half time Real created a couple of good chances including one with Marcello but his shot went wide. Shortly after, Iniesta capitalized on some lacklustre defence from Real and scored his first and team’s third goal. Suraze scored again on the 73rd minute to seal the fate of the home team.
Throughout the game, Real was able to create only three real chances but was not able to capitalize on either. Iniesta said after the game, “We only wanted to be ourselves and we have done that. We neutralised Madrid”. Indeed they have!
