Cristiano Ronaldo was spotted celebrating in the stands after Vinicius Junior’s goal during Real Madrid’s clash against Barcelona.

Los Blancos took back the lead in La Liga after their impressive 2-0 victory against arch-rivals Barcelona last night.

Despite creating a number of chances, both sets of players were wasteful in the first half of the match. However, much of the credit for the deadlock until late can be credited to both Thibaut Courtois and Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

It was in the second half that Real Madrid finally hit their top gear. And goals from Vinicius Junior and Mariano Diaz sealed all three points for Zinedine Zidane’s men.

Former Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu to watch the latest Clasico. The Portuguese was to play in Juventus’ match against Inter Milan but had time to tune in for one of the greatest fixtures after the tie was called off due to health concerns.

Following Vinicius’ goal, the cameras zoomed in on Ronaldo to capture his reaction. And the Juventus forward, who celebrated emphatically, showed he still holds the club close to his heart.
