Barcelona fall to Real Madrid in Riyadh

Barcelona boss Xavi was incapable of capturing his first Real Madrid scalp since his arrival at the Camp Nou after Barça fell to a 3-2 loss against their bitter rivals in the semi-finals of the Supercopa de España.

The clash took place in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh at the King Fahd International Stadium and the spectacle did not disappoint overall from an entertainment standpoint, and the result saw the capital outfit earn their 100th El Clasico win.

Real took the lead through Brazilian starlet Vinícius Júnior in the 25th-minute only for it to ultimately be canceled out by Dutch international forward Luuk de Jong who bungled in an equalizer just four minutes from halftime.

A free-flowing and direct Madrid pulled out in front once again in the 71st-minute through none other than star striker Karim Benzema after he slotted into an open net before Barcelona once again drew level, this time thanks to Spanish wonderkid Ansu Fati who headed from close range just seven minutes from the full-time whistle.

But the current La Liga leaders were not to be denied on the night after second-half substitute Federico Valverde gave the capital giants the lead for the third time and for good as they now await the winner between Atlético Madrid and Athletic Club which is set to take place tomorrow at the same venue.
