Ernesto Valverde's stint as the manager of Barcelona is off to the perfect start. The Spaniard has won his first ever El Clasico and will be hoping that it will be the first of many.
Messi gave the Catalan giants an early lead before Rakitic doubled the lead only a couple of minutes later. Real Madrid pulled one back through Kovacic before Asensio equalized. The second half started the same way as the first one, as Pique put the Camp Nou outfit ahead, poking home Neymar's cross. Zinedine Zidane's side tried their best to find a breakthrough but were denied by some good goalkeeping by Jasper Cillessen.
The two sides meet again in about a fortnight's time, until then we will have to make do with this.
