Barcelona vs. Real Madrid result: El Clasico goes to Real on goals by Alaba and Vasquez
The first El Clasico of the season goes to Real Madrid which was clinical on both sides of the ball, as Barcelona continued to struggle to create in attack. David AlabaBarcelona started strong with Ansu Fati leading the charge and the match could’ve taken a turn in Barcelona’s favor when U.S. international Sergino Dest had the goal at his mercy, but skied his attempt in the 25th minute. That left the door open for Real Madrid, which began to exert more pressure through the runs of Vinicius Junior, whom Barcelona struggled to contain.

"This game won't be decisive," said Koeman."It will just show what kind of moment the two teams are in."After beating Valencia in La Liga and Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League, a victory at Camp Nou on Sunday would round off an encouraging week for Koeman and his team.Yet many believe Madrid are favourites.
