Real Madrid C.F. beats Barcelona in El Classico

Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema scored from Real Madrid, while Lionel Messi has scored the only goal for Barcelona. Before this game a gap between Real Madrid and Barca was 16 points, which made the game not as interesting as it usually is. Real Madrid's coach Joze Maurinho decided to give a rest to several footballers. The royal club was playing without Christiano Ronaldo,

Mesut Ozil and Sami Xedira. Some think that this happened, because Real has a very important Champions League game with Manchester United on Tuesday.

Real Madrid scored the first goal at 6th minute. Defender of Barcelona Javier Mascherano made an error and Benzema took an advantage of it. However, on 18th minute Lionel Messi equalized for Barcelona scoring the goal after a pass from Dani Alves. After this the tempo of the game has dropped and goal scoring chances were very few and far between. However, Messi and Morata had goal scoring opportunities, which they didn't take.

In the second half Real dominated the game. Christiano Ronaldo came as a substitute and after his introduction Real started playing much better. On 82th minute Sergio Ramos scored the winning goal.

After this Barça tried to equalize but was unlucky.

After the game footballers and coach Jordi Roura made comments about the game. Sergio Ramos who scored the winning goal said: "I didn't know if It was the penalty or not.One thing I know is that we deserved this victory"

Jordi Roura also had his say after the game: "We were close to play draw, but in the end we lost. It's always difficult to play on Santiago Bernabeu. I don't want to talk about referee."

Alvaro Morata also has expressed his opinion about the game: "I'm very happy that I played in the big game like this. I had a chance to score,but unfotunately I didn't take it.I'm still very happy with the result."

Barcelona will play next game in La Liga at home against Deportivo de La Coruna, while Real Madrid will play away against Celta.
