Barca are back on top of the Primera Liga after a fascinating game that saw a contrast in styles and fortunes. An early second half strike from substitute Zlatan Ibrahimovic piloted Barcelona to a 1-0 win over their visiting Real Madrid in a El Clasico clash where both sides where reduced to ten here on Sunday.
Ibrahimovic, a late inclusion in the home side’s team selection, came on as a substitute for Thierry Henry in the 51st minute and found the winner five-minutes later with a clever sweet one time volley past Iker Casillas.
Pacing away from his marker, Ibrahimovic arrived late in the area unmarked to side foot home a cross from the right hand side by Daniel Alves.
The goal was the Swede’s eighth of the season and one that lift Barcelona over Real in the La Liga table by two points. The homevictory also ended Real’s 12 match unbeaten run.

Got to be one of the goal celebrations of the season. Phil Brown on Jimmy Bullard said It was a fantastic celebration. Great comedy is about timing. I couldn’t deliver my post-match speech as I was laughing so much. The whole thing was timed to perfection… You could not have had a celebration like that, after a goal, unless it was at Eastlands and was in the goal in front of the Hull fans. I had no idea it was going to happen. I was trying to arrange a five-man midfield at the time so I didn’t see it. But my analysis guy showed me it on the laptop when we got into the changing room.”
Jimmy Bullard scored an 82nd-minute penalty to earn Hull City a precious point and ensure a seventh successive top-flight draw for Manchester City
The remix of Phil Browns half time pitch talk. Priceless

Tevez plays a little tennis in the ATP World Tour semi-finals in London. But Tevez did provide a little light-hearted entertainment for the crowd but it looks like he needs to work on his tennis skills bigtime.
Compatriot and training mate Juan Martin del Potro’s victory over Roger Federer ensured he pipped Andy Murray to qualify for the final
