A magical night for Barcelona in Bernabeu Stadium

Luis Suarez struck the opening goal of the Clasico for Barcelona his 30th strike in all competitions this season

Croatia worldwide Ivan Rakitic struck the only goal of the game midway through the first half, delivering an ice-cool finish over Madrid keeper Thibaut Courtois after being played in by a clever pass by Sergi Roberto.

Today it was not Messi or Luis Suarez but Rakitic who gave the win to the Catalans.

"But it wasn't enough to win all three points".

"We are all going to enjoy this night as not many teams can say they have won twice in four days at the Bernabeu", match victor Rakitic told reporters.

Los Blancos have a 2-1 aggregate lead from the first leg of the round of 16 tie, and Ramos added: "Obviously it is a very important step for them [Barcelona] and it is a pity for us, but we will still keep fighting until the end".

Brych, 43, last took charge of a Madrid game last season when he was the man in the middle for the reigning champions' 2-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Parc des Princes.

Arsenal welcomed Mesut Ozil back to their league line-up, but only onto the bench, where he joined Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Emery's men head to the game following a 2-0 victory over Southampton in their last Premier League encounter.

"We have a new final on Wednesday [against Ajax] and we will give everything, both in Europe and in the league".

Madrid had their fair share of chances in front of goal, especially in the second half, but could not capitalize on any of them to grab the points. "We had our chances, but when you don't score goals things will get away from you".

Barcelona achieved their second victory against Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu in four days after their 3-0 victory at the Spanish Cup semi-finals' second leg that sent Barcelona to the final.

Barca could have taken the lead when Messi latched onto a pass and was clean through on goal, albeit with a hard angle, but his shot drifted wide.

It was a rare moment of needle in an unusually uneventful game between Spain's two biggest clubs.
