Real Madrid won the first Clasico of the season and moved to the top of the table as they beat Barcelona 1-3 at Camp Nou.

Valverde scored for Zidane’s team in the opening five minutes of the game, only Ansu Fati to equalize three minutes later. Fati became the youngest player to score in a Clasico game with this goal. He is already youngest player to score in the UCL and La liga.

Game remained level until Ramos claimed a controversial penalty in the 62nd minute of the match. Barca manager Ronald Koeman criticized the decision of VAR to award Real a penalty. Koeman said VAR is only used to give decisions against Barca.

Ramos scored from the spot, giving the lead and Modric scored a wonderful goal in a chaotic Barca penalty area in the last minutes of the game giving Real all the three points.

Real stays at the top with 13 points, Barca is in the 12th place with only 7 points from five games.
