Luis Enrique began the game by starting his favoured front three of Neymar, Suarez and Messi.
The trio displayed the chemistry that has revived Barcelona's season. However, it was Jeremy Mathieu that came up with the goods after scoring a headed goal in the 19th Minute.
While Barcelona slightly dominated the possession during the match. Real Madrid did provide their fair share of threats with Cristiano Ronaldo also scoring a headed goal to level the result.
The half-time score was 1-1. Recent form looked to dictate the play and Barcelona got their rewards after Luis Suarez scored a composed effort to the put Barcelona in front.
Gareth Bale was the next Real Madrid player to score but his goal was ruled off-side. Despite replays showing that he was onside. Although some question whether this had been given to Ronaldo rather than Bale. However, the ruling still stood.
Barcelona had dominated large parts of the game where as, Real Madrid never really managed to get into full gear.
The El Clasico result now puts Barcelona 4 points clear of Real Madrid and is a crucial match in the La Liga title race.
