It was all joy for all Madrid Fans as a 10-man Real Madrid defied all odds to defeat in-form Barcelona at the Camp Nou by 1:2 on Saturday.
Barcelona who had gone 39 matches without a defeat were favourites against a very inconsistent Madrid side.The match was more than a game as Barcelona needed a win as a tribute to Johan Cruyff.
The win makes Zinedine Zidane the first Real Madrid coach to win his first Clásico against Barcelona whilst Cristiano Ronaldo scored his tenth goal for Real Madrid at Camp Nou Stadium and his twenty-nineth la liga goal.
The hosts opened the scoring through Gerard Pique’s header, but Karim Benzema leveled for the visitors. Ronaldo then capitalized on a defensive error in the 83rd minute to put the visitors in the lead. The defeat means Barca’s ten-point gap over Real Madrid in the league has been reduced to seven.
