el clasico highlights!
Neymar and Luis Suarez continued their incredible scoring run to crush Real Madrid and send Barcelona on their way to a 4-0 Clasico.
Suarez opened the goal feast for Luis Enrique’s side 11 minutes in, perfectly netting a first-time finish around Keylor Navas with his right boot following a swift run and pass from Sergi Roberto.
Madrid could not cope with Barca’s pace, and Neymar made it two six minutes from the interval as he converted a cute through-ball from Iniesta before rolling the ball through Navas via a deflection of the goalkeeper.
But Barca were not satisfied to sit back with their two-goal lead, with Neymar facing an athletic stop from Navas from a 25-yard long free kick which the keeper clawed over 51 minutes in.
Madrid did not pay attention to the warning as Iniesta soon delivered Barca’s third — and his first league goal since March 2014, — launching the ball past Navas after an amazing back-heel assist from Neymar.
Barca were tearing Madrid apart as Suarez wasted a promising chance to add a fourth 55 minutes in, and things got even worse as Luis Enrique then brought in Messi for Rakitic for his first appearance after the.
Madrid had no luck in front of goal as Cristiano Ronaldo was denied a point-blank effort by Bravo 22 minutes from time, while Suarez showed the composure Ronaldo was sorely lacking as he raced through before cheekily lobbing Navas from close range.
The humiliation stretched even more for Madrid as Isco was shown a direct red card for a lunge on Neymar five minutes before the final whistle as Los Blancos lost their composure.
Substitute Munir El Haddadi should have been able to complete it as a five goal haul near the end but shot wayward from 15 yards with Gerard Pique also in a opportune position to score, though the match, honestly speaking, was already well over as Barca moved six points clear on the top of La Liga table.
