Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick for Barcelona who humiliated Real Madrid 5-1 in Sunday’s El Clasico reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Barcelona dictated the pace of the game in the opening stages of the game and scored twice through Philippe Coutinho and a Suarez penalty awarded by a Video Assistant Referee review.
Marcelo’s halved the deficit at the start of the second half but a Suarez double and Arturo Vidal header sealed the game for Barcelona.
The result leaves Real Madrid in a seemingly untenable situation after Madrid’s heaviest Clasico defeat in three years and Barcelona building a seven-point lead over their old rivals in the league.
Real Madrid are now ninth in the La Liga division with 14 points from 10 games.
Madrid midfielder Casemiro told Spanish television after the match: “This 5-1 sums up our season so far. We have played well in some spells, But that is this season – we are a disaster, all playing very bad, all of us.”
