, they gained the three points and their fourth consecutive win against Barcelona which is their best performance since 1965.

This issue caused Carlo Ancelotti to praise his team's defenders in a press conference.

He told reporters:

"We can compete, the team is very solid.

"We have played against a great one, who has played a great game. We have suffered, but we have known how to suffer together. Not to lose control when you don't have the ball, it is also a virtue.

"We have done very well. On the defensive aspect, I liked it a lot. We would all like to put pressure on the whole field, but it can't be done.

"It was a practical game. This team has this quality to play against and we have to enjoy it. Barca has complicated the game for us. It was not simple.

"I'm happy to win, El Clasico is the most important game. We are happy, but unfortunately, this is only three points."

Real Madrid are top of La Liga with 20 points from their nine games, ahead of Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona are eighth with 15 points.
