El Clasico – Barcelona 2 – 0 Real Madrid

Saturday night saw one of the most famous derby’s in the world being played. Barcelona came into the game with full of confidence from recent results and had the luxury of resting many of their first team players in their mid-week Champions League match, unlike Real Madrid. The current La Liga champions, Real Madrid, were also suffering from injuries to many of their key players including Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Arjen Robben.The game itself Barcelona quietly dominated and they imposed their authority throughout the game. They started patiently, and this was reflected by the half time score of 0-0. However, in the second half they stepped up the tempo, forcing an excellent penalty save from Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas. Barcelona kept on pressurising the Real Madrid net and the opener came in the 83rd minute from Cameroon International, Samuel Eto’o. Real Madrid attempted to force an equaliser, however, after Messi’s 90th minute chip over the Real Madrid goalkeeper, the game was well and truly done, and it is safe to say it was a good nights work for Barcelona, however, Real Madrid will have some food for thought.
