thumbnail Hello,

A recap of Los Blancos’ home loss to their arch rivals in the Primera Division at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday through defining images.

Heading into the Clasico, Real Madrid was marginally favorite to win against Barcelona. And indeed, Jose Mourinho’s side took the lead at the Santiago Bernabeu after just 22 seconds when Karim Benzema found the target.

However, the defending Spanish and European champion came back strongly and equalized through Alexis Sanchez on the half-hour mark.
