Real Madrid 0-1 Barcelona: Rakitic sends Barca 10 points clear in La Liga

Ivan Rakitic scored his first La Liga goal since 20 OctoberBarcelona moved 10 points clear at the top of La Liga after a second El Clasico win in four days, Ivan Rakitic's goal all but ending Real Madrid's faint title hopes. Rakitic kept his composure to beat Thibaut Courtois after a one-two with Sergi Roberto split Real's defence.Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane were denied towards the end but Real rarely looked like equalising at the Bernabeu.
They are third in the table, 12 points behind Barcelona with 12 games left.Atletico Madrid, who are second, will cut Barca's lead at the top to seven points if they win at Real Sociedad on Sunday (17:30 GMT).
Barca closing in on fourth title in five seasons
Barcelona's players formed a huddle as they celebrated on the pitch after the final whistle.This was their 18th victory in 26 games in the league and, barring a disastrous set of results, they will retain the title they won by 14 points last season.Having beaten Real in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, Ernesto Valverde's side inflicted further misery on their bitter rivals.Barca showed their class all over the pitch. Croatia midfielder Rakitic raced clear of Sergio Ramos to score before Courtois produced a double save to keep out Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.At the back, Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet were solid as Barca clocked up a fifth clean sheet in six games.This will not go down as a classic but Barcelona emerged with their treble hopes intact.More to follow.
