The stars were out in force in Barcelona late last night as new signee Neymar keyed a 2-1 win for Barcelona over bitter rivals Real Madrid at the Nou Camp. The home side went ahead through the Brazilian on 18 minutes with the crafty winger slotting through the wickets of a Madrid defenseman and past ‘keeper Diego Lopez into the far corner.
Barca continued to boss Madrid around for the rest of the match with Gareth Bale playing a hugely unimportant role for the visitors and Cristiano Ronaldo having several efforts parried away by Victor Valdes, who was quite brilliant for the Catalonian side on the day.
A fabulous 78th minute chip from Alexi Sanchez (set up by Neymar) ended all hope for the visitors, despite an irrelevant late goal back from Jese in stoppage time as this El Classico went to Barca.
