Watch: Iniesta gives Barcelona 3–0 lead over Real Madrid in El Clasico

Saturday November 21st, 2015

Barcelona poured it on Real Madrid in the latest edition of El Clasico, and Andres Iniesta got a deserved — and spectacular — goal, after playing an influential role in the match.

After goals from Luis Suarez and Neymar, Iniesta gave Barcelona a 3–0 lead with a strike of his own, working a beautiful combination with Neymar. He found the Brazilian at the edge of the box, and Neymar laid it off for Iniesta with a slick back-heel pass. Iniesta ran onto the ball and and fired a rocket into the back of the net in the 53rd minute. 

Iniesta’s performance brought an ovation from the Bernabeu crowd when he was substituted out of the match, a la Ronaldinho during a 3-0 Barcelona win in Madrid in 2005. 

Barcelona went on to win 4-0, opening a six-point lead over its rival in La Liga. Watch Iniesta's goal below:
