Lets break down the games events and highlights.

Initially Barca would start out strong and in a far more favourable position than Real Madrid with Neymar clenching an early goal at 4 just within the top of the box thanks to an assist delivered by Suarez. Suarez would take no shots during hisnear 70minuteson field, but completed 90% of his passes resulting in three attempts.

Ronaldo would answer back in the late first half from the penalty spot. He had Gerard Pique to thank for that little set up following a low cross that stuck the Barcelona defenders hand.

Kleper Pepe capitalized on the momentum, delivering a header from Toni Kroos corner into the Barca net, leaving the score 2-1 in favour of Madrid just minutes after beginning the second half.

Benzema would go on to widen the gap on a counter-attack firing low across the box to find the far corner of the net.

Barca had trouble regaining their composure and couldnt bring their team back into the game before the final whistle, leaving Real Madrid with their first Clsico of the season.
