Check out the goals and the highlights of Real Madrid’s 2-0 El Clasico triumph over Barcelona this evening.

Real Madrid are back in controll in La Liga after a vital 2-0 victory over Barcelona at the Bernabeu Stadium.

The Whites finally broke the curse as they registered their first El Clasico win in the Spanish Championship in almost four years.

Both goals came in the second half of the game, which was totally dominated by Zinedine Zidane’s side over the whole 45 minutes.

Barcelona wasted two great opportunities in the first half though, as Messi and Griezmann weren’t on the required level to put the visitors in front and announce a fifth successive away win for the Catalans at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Isco was denied by Ter Stegen and Gerrard Pique, who cleared the ball off the line in the early parts of the second half, while Martin Braithwaite failed to take advantage of Marcelo’s poor clearance and was stopped by Courtois in a one-on-one situation.

Vinicius Junior finally broke the deadlock in the 71st minute with his first El Clasico goal and Mariano Diaz set the final score in the stoppage time to put Real Madrid back on the top of the table.
