Real Madrid was able to use Cristiano Ronaldo, Higuain and Kaka, but they still could not defeat a powerful Barcelona. The Spanish "Clasico" end with a 1-0 victory for the Catalan team.
The only goal of the game was scored by substitute Zlatan Ibrahimovic, thanks to a long range pass by Dani Alves. Madrid defenders Pepe and Albiol reacted just a second too late to stop the Catalan striker.
At some point, it was interesting to see that many local fans tried to bother Cristiano Ronaldo with laser pointers before a free kick.
Pellegrini's team now fell to second place in the Spanish League, but it certainly is not a tragedy. Sevilla and Valencia are close behind but the race for the title is still open for any team.
