Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 22nd 2015 Contents MADRID—Luis Suarez scored twice and Neymar
added a goal and an assist to lead Barcelona to an
emphatic 4-0 win over Real Madrid at the Santiago
Bernabeu in the first “clasico” of the season yesterday,
leaving its rival under increased pressure from the
The commanding victory gave Barcelona a six-
point lead in the Spanish league standings, and halted
Madrid’s 22-game unbeaten streak at home in the
Barcelona played most of the match without Lionel
Messi, who came off the bench in the 56th minute
after being sidelined for nearly two months because
of a left knee injury.
“It was a memorable game, it will go down in his-
tory,” Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. “It’s our
eternal rival. It’s not always that you can win with
“We were better,” he said. “I’m satisfied not just
for the victory, but for the way we did it.”
Real Madrid fans loudly jeered their team after the
loss, its fourth in the last five games against Barcelona.
Fans waved white handkerchiefs—a gesture of goodbye
aimed at Madrid coach Rafa Benitez—and called for
the resignation of president Florentino Perez. In a
sign of Barcelona’s dominance, the scorer of the third
goal, Andres Iniesta, was applauded by some Madrid
fans when he was substituted in the second half.
Real Madrid played the final minutes with 10 men
as Francisco Alarcon “Isco” was sent off after a hard
foul on Neymar in the 85th.
It was the second consecutive loss for Real Madrid
after an unbeaten start to its season, and the seventh
straight win for Barcelona.
There were unprecedented security measures in
place after the attacks in Paris last week, with nearly
3,000 policemen and private security officers working
to maintain public safety at the 81,000-capacity sta-
dium. There was a minute of silence in honor of the
victims in Paris, and a large French flag was displayed
across some of the lower fan sections as the players
lined up at midfield before kickoff.
Barcelona reached 30 points from 12 matches, while
Madrid remained with 24 points. Madrid needed to
win to pull even with its rival in points and return to
the top of the standings on goal difference.
Barcelona was in control during most of the game
and never gave Madrid many chances to score. Cris-
tiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale did
not have any impact on the game.
Suarez and Neymar, meanwhile, continued to
improve on their incredible scoring streak—the South
American duo has scored 23 of the team’s 27 goals
since Messi got injured. It was Suarez’s seventh and
eighth goals in the last five games, and Neymar’s sixth
in the last four games. Neymar leads the league with
12 goals, one more than Suarez.
Messi recovered from a left knee injury but started
the clasico on the bench because he was not yet 100
percent fit. The Argentine playmaker had missed the
last nine Barcelona games.
Suarez opened the scoring in the 11th after receiving
a perfect pass by Sergi Roberto behind the defenders.
He used the outside of his right foot to quickly fire
a firm low shot into the far corner, giving no chance
to Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.
Neymar increased the lead from close range in the
39th after a through ball by Iniesta. The Brazilian con-
trolled the ball inside the area and sent it into the net
with a low left-footed shot underneath Navas, who
touched the ball but couldn’t completely block the
shot. Replays showed that Neymar appeared to be
slightly offside when he received Iniesta’s pass.

There was heightened security
in Turin, which is located little

was scheduled to be in the city.
As well as extra police, with snif-

nearby, there were also 650 stew-

match. However, neither the stew-

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi
Buffon made his Serie A debut 20
years ago this week, four years
before Milan counterpart Gianluigi
Donnarumma was born.
Donnarumma has been likened
to Buffon and the Milan teen

comparison with a fantastic flying

top corner four minutes from half-

Leroy Sane eluded Xabi Alonso and

Schalke took heart from the goal

with chances scarce at either end.
Martinez broke the deadlock with

Suddenly there was more space
