Cristiano Ronaldo netted the winning goal for Real Madrid, as they came from behind to defeat Barcelona 2-1 at the Nou Camp on Saturday night.
The hosts, who paid tribute to former player and manager Johan Cruyff before the match, took the lead early in the second half, after Gerard Pique powered in a header past Keylor Navas.
Barca had chances to extend the lead but did not, before Karim Benzema found space inside the area to volley in the equalizer.
Sergio Ramos was dismissed for a second bookable offence, but Ronaldo ensured Zinedine Zidane’s men got all three points, after he superbly controlled Gareth Bale’s cross and drove in the winner.
The result sees Real move within seven points of La Liga leaders Barca, with 7 matches to left.
