Real Madrid lead ahead of “El clàssic”

November 22, 2009

FC Barcelona dropped into second place in the league last night after their draw against Athletic de Bilbao and a Real Madrid win put their arch rivals one point ahead.

With a number of key players out of action, Barça sometimes struggled to find space and while Leo Messi came close to scoring in the first half it wasn’t until the 54rd minute that Xavi put the ball into the area for Dani Alves to score. However, just 9 minutes later Athletic equalised when Toquero took the ball through a confused Barça defence to put the ball beyond the reach of Victor Valdes.
