Barcelona vs Real Madrid Highlights, El Clasico: Barcelona went top of the La Liga standings on the back of a resounding 5-1 win over arch-rivals Real Madrid in the first Clasico of the season. Without Lionel Messi, Barcelona faced no trouble in dispatching Real who looked poor in the first half and were swept aside as they went in search for the equaliser later in the second half. Luis Suarez bagged a hat-trick with goals on either side of the break as VAR came into use for the first time in Clasico history. Elsewhere, Coutinho and Arturo Vidal also found themselves on the scoresheet. Marcelo scored his third goal in three games to reduce the deficit to 2-1 at a time but Barcelona didn’t let the game get away from their grasp. The result would once again raise question marks over the future of Julen Lopetegui at Real Madrid.

GOAL! Luis Suarez with a little chip over Thibaut Courtois and that's hat-trick for the Uruguayan. Ramos with an error near the half way line, Suarez is through on goal and has the space and time to beat Courtois who tries his best to spread himself. Barcelona 4-1 Real Madrid in the 83rd minute

22:25 (IST)28 Oct 2018
Real Madrid change

Marcelo is replaced by Mariano Diaz. Marcelo looks injured after a clash of knees during a move. Had recovered in time for this game after a knock in midweek against Plzen. Looks like another injury concern for him and Real Madrid.

22:19 (IST)28 Oct 2018
GOAL! Barcelona 3-1 Real Madrid

GOAL! Against the run of play, Barcelona score their third and Luis Suarez his second. Sergi Roberto with a little dink towards Suarez and the Uruguayan with a stunning header. Had no elevation on it, no real pace and it was well away from the goal but he creates the angle, the pace to beat Courtois with ease. WOW! Eighth goal for Suarez now against Real Madrid. Barcelona 3-1 Real Madrid in the 76th minute

22:16 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Barcelona change

First Barcelona change sees Rafinha go off to be replaced by Semedo. 

22:11 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Lucas Vazquez is completely unmarked on the touchline and makes the most of the space. Runs into the Barcelona box and whips in a lovely cross. Benzema is on the end of it but his header is over the goal. Good chance to get the equaliser but the Frenchman's jump is all wrong

22:04 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Now Barcelona hit the crossbar! Lovely ball over the top to the far post, Ivan Rakitic pulls it back and Luis Suarez's effort comes off the post. An hour played in Barcelona. 

22:00 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Luka Modric hits the underside of the goalpost! The Croatian tries to angle the ball into the bottom corner of the goal after a poor defensive effort from Barcelona. It hits the post and comes off. Lucky, lucky Ter Stegen!

21:59 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Gareth Bale with two decent chances to score but it has been squandered. Was free to score at the far post but his header lacks the direction. Moments later, another chance at a header but it is sent over. To be fair, Ramos went for it too which may have put him off.

21:54 (IST)28 Oct 2018
GOAL! Barcelona 2-1 Real Madrid

GOAL! Marcelo gets one back for Real Madrid. Bit of a mess in the Barcelona box after an Isco cut back having run down the line. Comes to Marcelo who chests it down to beat the defender and right foots it home. Barcelona 2-1 Real Madrid in the 50th minute

21:48 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Real Madrid make one change at the break: Lucas Vazquez has come on to replace Raphael Varane.

21:34 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Barcelona lead Real Madrid 2-0 at the break with goals from Coutinho and Luis Suarez. Coutinho scored after a cut back from Jordi Alba while Suarez benefitted from first VAR intervention in a Clasico. Real Madrid started decently but have been miserably poor since. Question at the break. Is this a penalty? 

21:29 (IST)28 Oct 2018
Real Madrid under serious pressure

Real Madrid are unable to create anything at the moment. To make things worse, look abject at the back. Suarez with a floated cross inside the area and Pique gets his header all wrong. Plays it across the goal instead of heading it goalward. Courtois scrambles and holds the ball. Minute away from half time

21:24 (IST)28 Oct 2018

First booking of the game sees Ivan Rakitic booked for a foul from behind on Toni Kroos. Now, Nacho is cautioned for a late challenge on Coutinho. 

21:23 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Glorious ball by Jordi Alba from the left. Inches from Luis Suarez to make it 3-0 with the Uruguayan unmarked in the box. Sweet cross but just away from Suarez

21:16 (IST)28 Oct 2018
VAR! PENALTY! GOAL! Barcelona 2-0 Real Madrid

Camp Nou crowd and the Barcelona players as well are incensed. They are certain Luis Suarez has been brought down by Raphael Varane. Referee plays it on but there is VAR in play as well - the first time in Clasico history. There is contact and the referee comes on to check the screen. PENALTY! Barcelona have a chance at doubling the lead. Luis Suarez steps up and scores to Courtois' right. Barcelona 2-0 Real Madrid. Suarez reveals a special T-shirt celebrating the birth of his third child.  

21:12 (IST)28 Oct 2018

Ramos with a long-range effort in the 27th minute. The ball sits up perfectly for him and belts it on the volley but the direction is missing on it. Straight at Ter Stegen who holds on with ease.
