Immediate Reaction: Barcelona 1 – 3 Real Madrid

Real Madrid go into the Camp Nou and win a wild one

Real Madrid win a wild one at the Camp Nou 1-3 (Pique OG, Ronaldo, Asensio; Messi), giving themselves a great cushion heading into the second leg of Supercopa. This match was filled with weird things, which we’ll break down in the coming hours. Here’s our immediate reaction the bare bones. Still to come: player ratings, post-game podcast, and match review.

This Clasico had a strange, de-cultured feel to it to start. Nevermind that Neymar was gone, and Ronaldo was on the bench. Silky flicks and roulettes from Marcelo and Isco were met with ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ by Camp Nou tourists, surely rendering sincere Cules in a not-so-packed-to-the-brim stadium mad.
