In the first Clasico this season, Real Madrid beat arch-rivals Barcelona 2-1 in a La Liga match on Sunday at the Camp Nou. David Alaba and Lukazquez scored the visitors’ goals, while Sergio Aguero scored a late consolation goal for the hosts.

It was the first time in 17 years that neither Lionel Messi, nor Cristiano Ronaldo or Sergio Ramos were involved in such a high-profile confrontation. Ronaldo vs. Messi and other similar duels added to the competitive edge of this match.

However, Clasicos are always something special for the fans of these two clubs all over the world. With this victory, Los Merengues retained its second place in the league table, one point behind leaders Real Sociedad with a postponed match. On the other hand, Barcelona slipped to ninth place.

The two clubs have met so far in 247 official matches, of which Real Madrid won 99 and Barcelona won 96. 52 matches ended in a draw. Former Barcelona star Lionel Messi is the top scorer in El Clasico history and is also the player most involved with his current teammate at Paris Saint-Germain and former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
