VIDEO: Modric’s fantastic strike seals Madrid 3-1 win at Barcelona in 1st El Clasico of the season

A fantastic strike from Luka Modric ensured Real Madrid secured a 3-1 win against Barcelona at Camp Nou in the first El Clasico of the season.

Real Madrid took the lead in the 5th through Federico Valverde who was left to drive in from the right.

Ansu Fati quickly restored parity for Barcelona when Jordi Alba ran the flank and set up Ansu Fati who made no mistakes.

The teenager became the youngest goal scorer in the history of El Clasico with the strike.

Barcelona should have gone up through Lionel Messi but Thibaut Courtois stopped the Argentine super star.

Real Madrid then restored their lead after Lenglet was adjudged to have push Sergio Ramos from a corner.

Ramos stepped up and converted the spot kick.

With chances falling for both sides as clock wind down, Luka Modric scored a beautiful goal to seal the 3-1 win for Real Madrid.
