Madrid beat Barca to move top of La Liga

Real Madrid beat bitter rivals Barcelona 2-1 on Saturday to move top of La Liga in an El Clasico played in pounding rain at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

Karim Benzema opened the scoring in the 13th minute with a cheeky near-post flick despite Barca dominating possession in the opening stages.

Zinedine Zidane’s side doubled their lead before half-time through Toni Kroos’ deflected free-kick.

Ronald Koeman threw on Antoine Griezmann at the start of the second-half, and his brilliant dummy allowed Oscar Mingueza to stab home Jordi Alba’s cross.

Casemiro was shown a red card on the 90th minute by referee Gil Manzano for a second booking, but Madrid held on for the win that shoots them level on points with Atletico Madrid, who play tomorrow at Real Betis.

Barca remain third on 65 points.
