The home side had the majority of the possession in the opening minutes of the clash, with Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets among those trying to create an early goal for the Spanish champions.

Cesc Fabregas tried his luck with a long shot in the sixth minute, but it was inadvertently blocked by Neymar, who was flagged for offside.

Cristiano Ronaldo had the first chance of the match for the visitors, but he smashed his effort from outside the box both high and wide.

Barcelona broke the deadlock two minutes later, as Neymar bursts into the box before sending a low effort in off Daniel Carvajal.

Lionel Messi almost made it two shortly after, but his curling effort swung just wide of the post, while the Argentinian also looked to score from a free kick just before half time, but Pepe made the block for Real.

Madrid's best chance of the first half came just moments before the half-time whistle, when Sami Khedira looked to chip the ball in from a Ronaldo cross, but Victor Valdes was able to make the save.
