Barcelona had significantly more possession at Camp Nou, but were rarely dangerous. The from Alaba organized defense held, and the Madrilenians were dangerous now and then in quick counter attacks, such as in the 62nd minute when Karim Benzema failed to Barca goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Lucas Vazquez (93.) made the decision, the goal of the home side by Clasico debutant Sergio Aguero (97.) came too late.
With their fourth win over Barcelona in a row, Real took the lead again, ahead of clubs Sevilla FC and Real Sociedad, which were tied on points. Five points behind are Barcelona in eighth place. The pressure on coach Ronald Koeman, who did not replace Yusuf Demir, should continue to grow. (APA / Red)
