El Clasico: Real Madrid ease past Barcelona

Real Madrid beat Barcelona 2-1 in a new-look El Clasico, which, for the time since 2004, didn’t have Barca icon Lionel Messi, or Real legend Sergio Ramos, who both joined Paris St-Germain in the summer.

Former Bayern Munich defender, David Alaba, opened the scoring with his first Madrid goal in his El Clasico debut, before Lucas Vazquez, made it two late on for the visitors who have now won four consecutive El Clasicos for the first time in 56 years.

Sergio Aguero came off the bench and scored his first Barca goal, but that was all the hosts got to get as the final whistle followed suit. 

The result leaves Madrid in second place, one point behind Real Sociedad at the top after the Basque side drew Sunday’s late game 2-2 with Atletico Madrid, while Koeman’s men dropped to ninth.
