Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos hailed his side for their battling performance in vital 2-0 El Clasico win at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Los Blancos have now edged ahead of their old rivals in the La Liga title race, with a new one point lead at the top.
The hosts did have to withstand a flurry of early chances for the defending champions, but second half strikes from Vinicius Junior and Mariano Diaz sealed the three points.
And the Spanish international hailed Real’s ability to close out a vital win.
Zinedine Zidane has the chance to hit the ground running in 2019-2020 as Real Madrid have been handed a favourable set of fixtures to start the new campaign.
Madrid have finished third in back-to-back seasons and endured a calamitous campaign last time out that saw them sack two managers before reappointing Zidane in March – the man who led them to three successive Champions League triumphs.
However, after spending big during the close season to bring in Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic, the 33-time champions of Spain are expected to put up more of a fight this time around as they aim to take back the title from Barcelona.
Barcelona’s bid for a third successive LaLiga title and 27th overall will begin and end away from Camp Nou.
Ernesto Valverde’s men are set to visit Athletic Bilbao in their opening fixture of the new season on August 18, whil they will conclude the campaign on the road to Deportivo Alaves on May 24.
Barça beat rivals Real Madrid twice last term and will hope to continue their EL Clasico dominance in 2019-20. Camp Nou plays host to the first encounter on October 27, with the return match scheduled for March 1.
Real Madrid have returned to the top of La Liga thanks to a late 2-0 win over rivals Barcelona in tight El Clasico clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Vinicius Junior and Mariano Diaz’s goals took them a point clear of their bitter rivals at the top of the Liga table and gave them the better head-to-head record, which could be crucial in such a tight title race.
Certainly, there is little to choose between the two teams, as Sunday’s game showed. This entertaining, end-to-end battle at the Santiago Bernabeu between two clearly flawed teams could have gone either way.
