Barca showed that the model Guardiola has championed could overcome Madrid, winning where no other team has even managed as much as a draw this season.

The boss has insisted: “I want the world to see the best Barca again” and the game against Madrid made it quite clear that Barca are still way ahead of Madrid, who’ve lost both games this season and not scored a single goal.Barca put an end to Madrid’s 100% home league record and also ensured that for the first time since 24th February 2008 against Getafe, Madrid failed to score at home.

Valdés, teh league’s best

Against Madrid he stopped any hopes of a home team comeback with a series of great saves - in stark contrast to Iker Casillas who has now let in 11 goals in the last two seasons against Barca and become the keeper Messi has scored most goals against.

Messi again

Gap between the big two made clear
Home grown really is best
This was a team win and it was won by the bets team in the world, from the best youth scheme in the world. A total of eight of players from the Masia gave the galacticos of Madrid a real footballing lesson - the hosts ended the game with just four home grown players on the pitch.
