Here are the 4 things we learnt from El-Clasico:
After serving a ban for biting, Luis Suarez made his first start in La Liga last night. And he wasted no time to make his mark. The Uruguayan played a key part in Barcelona’s only goal in the match. His impressive pass found Neymar who made no mistake sliding it pass Casillas. And he didn’t stopp there.
It was Barcelona’s 2nd real test this season. And worryingly for Luis Enrique, his team failed in both of them. After seeing his side lost to PSG in UEFA Champions League, it was vital for Barcelona to win against Real Madrid. But a team who hasn’t conceded a single goal in previous 7 while playing against average sides, was turned into threads by Ronaldo and Co. Their defence had no answer to Real Madrid’s attack who could have scored many more than three if had they taken their chances. So if Barcelona want to win some piece of silverware this season, they have to start performing against the very best sides.
It’s not easy for any player playing alongside Ronaldo and Bale to make his individual mark. Karim Benzema has been working very hard for last couple of years at the Bernabeau. Even though he is not getting as much media fame as he deserves, Benzema always gives his 100%. In most other teams he'd be the out and out star. After scoring against arch rivals Barcelona, Karim Benzema has now 4 goals from just 6 shots on target in La Liga this season.
