Peep peep! Barcelona move 12 points clear of Madrid with a deserved victory in a relatively forgettable clasico. Ivan Rakitic scored the only goal in the first half, playing a give-and-go with Sergi Roberto before dinking the ball softly over the advancing Courtois. It was a lovely goal, scored in a manner which said, I am better than you, and we are better than you.
