Real Madrid have got the better of Barcelona 2-1 away from home at Camp Nou in La Liga.

David Alaba put Madrid in the lead on 32 minutes when he started and finished a counter-attack.

Lucas Vazquez doubled the advantage for Carlo Ancelotti’s side in the third minute of injury time.

Sergio Aguero, signed in the summer of 2021 on a free transfer, halved the deficit for Barcelona in the seventh minute of injury time.

However, that was too late too little for Ronald Koeman’s side.

Madrid won El Clasico 2-1.

The result means that Madrid are now second in the La Liga table with 20 points from nine matches.

Bitter rivals Barcelona are as low as ninth in the standings at moment with 15 points from nine games.

The Blaugrana can be backed at 13/1 on Betfair to win the match 2-1.

Meanwhile, Madrid will take on Osasuna at home in La Liga on Wednesday evening.

This is what we learned from the match between Barcelona and Madrid on Sunday.

Ronald Koeman is under immense pressure

Ronald Koeman was under pressure for a while, and the defeat to Madrid in El Clasico on Sunday is only going to increase calls for Barcelona to sack him. The Dutchman is not very popular among the fans, and defeat to Barcelona’s arch rivals in front of 86,000 fans at Camp Nou has put him in real trouble.

David Alaba is a bargain signing

Alaba joined Madrid in the summer of 2021 on a free transfer following his departure from Bayern Munich. The 29-year-old is a world-class footballer and is a player at the top of his game. The Austria international is fast proving to be the bargain signing of the summer of 2021. Alaba has been brilliant at centre-back, and as he showed against Barcelona, he is very good going on the attack and scoring goals.

Sergio Aguero can revive Barcelona

Sergio Aguero scored his first goal for Barcelona. It was a close-range effort that showed the Argentine striker’s intelligence and sharpness. The former Manchester City star has only just recovered from injury. And he came on as a substitute against Madrid in El Clasico. And scored. Aguero is a proven goalscorer, and he could revive Barcelona.
