Andres Iniesta is a wizard.
The Barca midfielder orchestrated multiple goals during El Clasico, but put his own name on the score sheet with an absolute laser.
Iniesta dominated the first half from the midfield, organizing possession and dropping picture-perfect through balls. His passes have made life easy for Suarez and Neymar, who have ravaged the back line of Madrid all afternoon.
Barcelona was in better form heading into El Clasico, and they’ve shown it throughout the game. Even without Messi, who entered as substitute after it was 3-0, Barcelona frustrated Madrid with perfect, composed passing.
Barcelona got the scoring started early, when a Sergi Roberto run left Suarez with an open net just ten minutes into action. Not thirty minutes later, Iniesta dropped a dime to Neymar, who slid a shot past Navas for the second Barca goal.
Madrid came out for the second half aggressive, and got good looks from Marcelo and James. But the Iniesta goal completely took the wind out of their sails, and it’s Barca sailing to victory at the Bernabeu.
