Real president gives Benítez public vote of confidence — Carlo Ancelotti and the media, which he says is engaged in a campaign against the club. The Madrid president also said widespread chants for him to resign were led by "the same people as always": radical ultras, who have no place in the stadium."

Barcelona’s clásico destruction leaves Real Madrid on their knees — The clásico started with Sergio Busquets producing a drag-back that left Gareth Bale going past him like a cartoon character off a cliff after four seconds and ended with Luis Suárez sitting Keylor Navas down and gently lifting the ball into the net after 74 minutes: Real Madrid's goalkeeper, like his team-mates, on his knees and at Barcelona's mercy.

ICYMI Barcelona’s clásico destruction leaves Real Madrid on their knees | Sid Lowe

Real Madrid manager Rafael Benítez feels pressure after Barcelona humbling — Rafa Benítez died with someone else's boots, surrounded by a sea of white hankies, that classic Spanish symbol of disgust. When his team left the field at half-time in the clásico, there were whistles; when they out for the second half, there were whistles; and at the end of a humiliating 4-0 defeat, there were whistles.

"The formation was supposed to be a 4-2-3-1 but looked more like 6-0-4."

Barcelona win over Real Madrid will go down in history, says Luis Enrique — Luis Enrique said Barcelona's performance would "go down in history" and described Andrés Iniesta as "world heritage" after his side defeated Real Madrid 4-0 at the Bernabéu. His opposite number, Rafa Benítez, admitted the defeat "hurts a lot" but insisted now was not the time for recriminations, even as some fans responded to the defeat by waving hankies in protest and calling for the resignation of the club's president, Florentino Pérez.

Luis Suárez hits two as Barcelona go on rampage against Real Madrid — With half an hour to go in the clásico at the Santiago Bernabéu, Leo Messi ran on for Barcelona, eight weeks after tearing the ligament in his knee, but this was no rescue mission. Instead, he came to take part in a destruction that had largely been carried out in his absence.

El Clasico showdown at Bernabeu as Real Madrid meet Barca — While Lionel Messi's will-he-wont-he fitness struggle has dominated the lead-up to El Clasico at the Bernabeu this Saturday, Real Madrid have concerns of their own and need to get back on track after a damaging defeat to Sevilla last time out. Lee Roden (Barcelona) and Eduardo Alvarez (Real Madrid) tackle the 50-50 Challenge ahead of the big match ...

Luis Suarez returns with Barcelona to the Bernabeu — For Luis Suarez, the Bernabeu is a beginning. On Saturday evening he returns to the stadium where he played his first game after serving Part One of his ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup -- and he's doing it three days after finally serving Part Two of his ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the 2014 World Cup.

Neymar transforms from Lionel Messi’s butler to Barcelona’s lord of the manor — They followed Leo Messi every step of the way, willing him to take his next step, then his next, then his next, from the Camp Nou to the Cruz Blau clinic and on towards the Santiago Bernabéu, his target and theirs.

Raúl calls time on a career defined by conviction, courage and being Real deal — Raúl resisted retirement for one more week, rebelling as he had always done. There seemed to be 29 minutes left of his 21-year professional career when he scored the winner against Fort Lauderdale Strikers in Brooklyn last Sunday and ensured there would be another 90 minutes at least.
