Luis Enrique’s side dominated their clash against their fierce rivals, and managed the unthinkable when they devastated Los Merengues in their own home.
The Catalonians ran out 4-0 winners, with Luis Suarez bagging a brace, Neymar finding the net and Andres Iniesta also adding his name in the goal charts.
Barcelona were outstanding to a man, and while the likes of Sergio Roberto, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets will receive immense credit, Luis Enrique will surely be delighted with all of his performers.
This clip sums up just what made Barca so special on the day, the intricate passing, irresistible movement and seemingly unquenchable desire for the ball that made the Nou Camp heavyweights such an irresistible force under previous coach Pep Guardiola.

The win takes Barca up to top spot in the Spanish table, and puts them a considerable six points clear of Real.
Los Merengues have lost their last two matches, and it remains to be seen whether the Blancos will keep faith with under-pressure coach Rafael Benitez.
