At the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, El Clasico is underway between Real Madrid and Barcelona. Superstar Andres Iniesta gave Barcelona an early 1-0 lead on the road against Madrid with an open goal off a pass from Lionel Messi.

In the 20th minute, Real Madrid was brought back in the match with a huge goal from Karim Benzema.  A big cross came from the touch line and the Frenchman made his way into the box along the left post of the goal. He elevated over his defender and put his head on it and it hit Victor Valdés’ hands and deflected into the goal.

It was a big goal to bring Madrid back into the game, Messi almost scored a goal after getting behind the defense but sent the low shot wide of the goal.
