David Alaba and Lucas Vazquez scored when Real Madrid beat Barcelona 2-1 in the first clash since Lionel Messi’s departure at Camp Nou on Sunday.

Defender Alaba scored in the 32nd minute with a great curling shot from the left side of the unstoppable area of ​​Marc Andre ter Stegen.

His strike came when American Sergino Dest sent his short-range shot soaring over the crossbar minutes after wasting the best chances of a Barcelona match.

Vazquez added a second stop time in a desperate counterattack against Barcelona in search of an equalizer.

Sergio Aguero pulled back one to Barcelona in the last few seconds with a cross from Dest.

With this victory, Madrid jumped to the top of the Spanish league and were on the same level as Sevilla and Real Sociedad. Sociedad will be able to regain the lead when they face defending champion Atletico Madrid later on Sunday.

The defeat was another blow to Barcelona. Barcelona struggled because of financial difficulties that prevented Messi and other players from re-contracting. Ronald Koeman’s team was left in 8th place with a 5-point drift.
