Ibrahimovic’s first El Clasico and he scores the game winner on a difficult volley – a goal that he makes look easy but is not. Alves whips the ball in to the far post where Ibrahimovic is waiting and had only just come on. Ibra brings a strength and physicality to the game when he comes on. He’s tall and strong but also incredible skillful. Teams facing Barcelona have a hard enough time trying to contain Messi, Iniesta and Xavi, and then they bring on Ibrahimovic.
Real Madrid had their chances but big plays by Carlos Puyol and Victor Valdes kept the score line at even in the first half. Cristiano Ronaldo’s shot was cleared wide by a Valdes kick save. Kaka was a handful at times and slipped through the Bara defense but the goal just wouldn’t come.
In the end it was a big time goal that sealed the victory for Barcelona. Take a look.
