Its time for El Clasico and yet again it never fails to disappoint with drama and passion. Tonight was the 1st leg of the Spanish Super cup (Supercopa). With Barcelona playing how they play keeping the possession and being creative in the final third it wasn’t enough to get passed K. Navas and his defence.
Los Blancos looked sloppy and relaxed when they went 1-0 up, Luis Suarez got taken down by goal keeper K. Navas, with the penalty awarded, only Messi could take it and scored the goal to bring it back to 1-1.
Ronaldo came on and suddenly made an impact, scoring a screamer outside the box passing Pique and curling passed Ter Stegen. Celebrating the 2-1 lead over los cules Ronaldo took his shirt off and got booked. Minutes later Ronaldo gets brought down by Umtiti, the ref give Cristiano a second yellow and gets sent off for “Diving”, out of frustration he pushes the referee and walks of the pitch.
The final goal was scored by Sub Marcos Asensio making it 3-1 in the 90th minute.
Barcelona have a lot to do at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. Would this have happened if Neymar was still at Barcelona ?
