Ivan Rakitic’s brilliantly dinked finish earned Barcelona El Clasico bragging rights this past weekend as the Croatia international struck the only goal of the game at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Barcelona midfielder’s finely taken goal saw Barca remain seven points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid and extend their lead over third-placed Real to 12 points.

Elsewhere, Chimy Avila, who is making quite a habit of scoring important goals, struck again for Huesca, giving the bottom-placed side an impressive 2-1 victory over high-flying Sevilla.

That win took them to just three points off survival after a mightily impressive run that has returned three victories in their last five Liga outings.

Meanwhile, there was plenty to celebrate for Espanyol – and the entire nation of China as Wu Lei announced himself in Spain with his first LaLiga goal.

The China international broke the offside trap before coolly slotting his side’s third in a 3-1 win over Real Valladolid that leaves them 13th in the standings.
