Real Madrid secured the first El Clasico triumph by 3-1 of LaLiga 2020-21 on Saturday.
It was a game that Real controlled and looked very sharp, especially in the second half.
Valverde firstly found the net earlier (5') while Ansu Fati managed the equalizer for the hosts just after three minutes of opening goal.
A second-half penalty from Sergio Ramos (63') and a late goal from Luka Modric ( 90') lifted Zinedine Zidane's team to three big points, mounting the pressure on Barca coach Ronald Koeman.
However, Lionel Messi had a couple good looks at goal, but big saves by Thibaut Courtois made the difference in a back-and-forth, end-to-end Clasico.
