On October 16th, one of the biggest rivalries took center stage to play a fantastic game. Real Madrid and Barcelona played their 250th competitive match with Barcelona winning 97 games and Real Madrid winning 101 games with 52 ties.

   Madrid opened the scoring with Karim Benzema at minute 12 who found the ball after a deflection from the keeper and scored. At minute 34, after a defensive error from Barcelona,  Ferland Mendy assisted Federico Valverde who scored an absolute screamer.  By the start of the second half, FC Barcelona were down 2-0 and it didn’t look good for them. 

   At minute 51, Benzema managed to score once more, but he was ruled offside. Towards the end of the game, Barcelona looked strong.  Then at minute 83, a beautiful run from Ansu Fati down the flank allowed him to center the ball to Ferran Torres who would score and make it 2-1. 

   In the dying minutes of the game, VAR (Video Assistant Referee) asked the referee to check for a potential penalty and it was given. At minute 91, Rodrygo Goes scored from the penalty spot to finalize the game and make it 3-1.
