Barcelona have much to rectify in their squad at the moment, and will need to emerge from their mid-table slumber sooner rather than later. Real Madrid, on the other hand, are up there with the leading pack and will look to mount another title challenge.

It's only the start of an action-packed day of football, and Real Madrid seize the day here with a 2-1 victory over arch-rivals Barcelona. Until next time, this is Aditya Hosangadi signing off. Cheers, and have a good day!

21:49 (IST)24 OCT 2021

Barcelona may have dominated the ball for long periods, but Real Madrid take the honours at Camp Nou tonight. In front of a packed home crowd, Barcelona were decidedly toothless in the first half and were only marginally better in the second.

Real Madrid, on the other hand, made the most of their counter-attacks and have come away with a deserved victory. Sergio Aguero will not be happy with the result tonight, but he will certainly cherish his first goal for the Catalan giants as he knocked in a late consolation.

21:42 (IST)24 OCT 2021

FULL TIME: Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

21:42 (IST)24 OCT 2021

It's only a consolation for Barcelona and there's no celebration for Sergio Aguero, but he's opened his account with the Catalans! Sergino Dest gets the better of Mendy and puts in a low cross, Aguero nonchalantly flicks the ball into the back of the net to pull one back!

90+7' 2-1! KUN AGUERO SCORES ON HIS CLASICO DEBUT!

21:39 (IST)24 OCT 2021

21:38 (IST)24 OCT 2021

90+2' CHAOS IN THE AREA! Pique and Gavi battle for the ball, and Memphis crosses into a crowd of Barcelona players. No one is able to make a contact, and Real Madrid survive.

Seven minutes of stoppage-time! Barcelona need to step it up.

21:34 (IST)24 OCT 2021

21:33 (IST)24 OCT 2021

89' Coutinho looks for Luuk de Jong with a neat lob, but Courtois steps forward to collect the ball comfortably.

21:31 (IST)24 OCT 2021

87' Vinicius Junior is unable to continue, and is replaced by Marco Asensio.

21:30 (IST)24 OCT 2021

21:29 (IST)24 OCT 2021

85' Luuk de Jong comes on for Gavi, as Barcelona go all out with their attacking options.

21:28 (IST)24 OCT 2021

21:25 (IST)24 OCT 2021

81' Good work from Kun Aguero on the right, as he takes on Ferland Mendy. Attempts to play a one-two with Busquets, but the ball goes out for a goal kick.

21:24 (IST)24 OCT 2021

80' Yellow card for Ferland Mendy.
Blatant time-wasting by the Frenchman, and the referee's having none of it.

21:22 (IST)24 OCT 2021

77' Surprise change from Ronald Koeman, as Frenkie de Jong goes off for Sergi Roberto.

21:21 (IST)24 OCT 2021

21:18 (IST)24 OCT 2021

74' It's the end of the night for Ansu Fati, and the Camp Nou lets out a roar as Sergio Aguero makes his way onto the pitch.

21:17 (IST)24 OCT 2021

72' BENZEMA!! Real Madrid seem stunned that they haven't doubled their lead. Benzema failed to bundle the ball into the goal, and Valverde hits the side netting with his effort.

71' Real Madrid make their first change, as Federico Valverde comes on for Rodrygo.

21:13 (IST)24 OCT 2021

21:10 (IST)24 OCT 2021

The free-kick is towards the far post, and Real Madrid clear their lines. Barcelona follow up with another cross, but the ball rolls out for a goal kick.

21:08 (IST)24 OCT 2021

64' Quick footwork from Ansu Fati, and he wins a free-kick for Barcelona. The Catalans have improved after half-time but they will need to take their chances. 

21:06 (IST)24 OCT 2021

62' BENZEMA! Lovely play from Modric to dink the ball back to his striker, but Benzema's shot is straight at Ter Stegen. Chance for Real Madrid!

21:04 (IST)24 OCT 2021

60' Dest to the rescue! Vinicius is through on goal after an excellent ball from Militao, and Sergino Dest waits a little too long to make his interception. Barcelona are safe, for now.

21:02 (IST)24 OCT 2021

58' Yellow Card for Gerard Pique.
The veteran defender is a little too enthusiastic with his penalty appeals, and has effectively talked himself into the referee's book.

21:01 (IST)24 OCT 2021

56' Coutinho and Gavi link up brilliantly with the latter through on the right flank, but his volleyed cross finds no takers in the penalty area.

20:52 (IST)24 OCT 2021

48' COUTINHO! Nearly gets his shot away after some good play from Depay and Fati. Immediate impact.

20:50 (IST)24 OCT 2021

46' Philippe Coutinho is on for Oscar Mingueza, with Sergino Dest slotting in at right-back.

20:49 (IST)24 OCT 2021

THE SECOND HALF IS UNDERWAY!
Real Madrid get things started, attacking from left to right. 

20:45 (IST)24 OCT 2021

Real Madrid, on the other hand, will be happy with their lead and will look for another opportunity to trouble Barcelona on the counter. The game is poised on a knife-edge at the moment, and we'll be back in a few minutes with the second half.

20:43 (IST)24 OCT 2021

The Catalans have been far too predictable with their plans so far, and Real Madrid have had all the time in the world to organise their defensive lines. Barcelona need a spark of inspiration. Or a stroke of luck. Preferably both.

20:42 (IST)24 OCT 2021

20:38 (IST)24 OCT 2021

20:37 (IST)24 OCT 2021

Barcelona created only two chances in the first half, with the first falling to Sergino Dest, who sent his effort flying into the stands from a mere six yards. The second chance was less clear-cut, with Ansu Fati getting a shot in at the stroke of half-time.

20:36 (IST)24 OCT 2021

Real Madrid go into half-time the happier side, with a crucial 1-0 lead at half-time. Los Blancos had a clear plan against Barcelona's high press and it paid dividends after the half-hour mark. Ancelotti's men rolled back the years with a trademark counter-attack, and David Alaba found acres of space to send his finish flying past Ter Stegen to secure the lead.

20:33 (IST)24 OCT 2021

HALF-TIME: Barcelona 0-1 Real Madrid

20:32 (IST)24 OCT 2021

Two minutes of added time.

20:31 (IST)24 OCT 2021

44' ANSU FATI! Finally finds the ball in the area and pulls the trigger, but Militao puts his body in the line to block his shot. Much better from Barcelona.

20:29 (IST)24 OCT 2021

42' It's Real Madrid's turn to pile the pressure on now, with Vinicius bearing down on Mingueza in his own half. Real Madrid seem much more effective with their play at the moment.

20:28 (IST)24 OCT 2021

41' Some more intricate play from Barcelona, but Lucas Vazquez is on hand to block Alba's cross. The Catalans sustain the pressure after the corner, but Courtois eventually collects the loose ball.

20:25 (IST)24 OCT 2021

38' Real Madrid storm forward on another counter, and Benzema looks for Kroos at the far post. The German pulls out the volley, but Jordi Alba is in the way. Pique clears his lines from the subsequent corner.

20:24 (IST)24 OCT 2021

38' Eric Garcia tries his luck from distance! Casemiro blocks to give away the corner, and Barcelona are unable to capitalise.

20:22 (IST)24 OCT 2021

35' PIQUE! Nearly gets the equaliser with an excellent header, but it's narrowly wide of Thibaut Courtois' far post.
