Ivan Rakitic’s laser beam of a strike puts Barcelona in front of Real Madrid

WOWZA!

WOW. WOW. WOW. Ivan Rakitic has given Barcelona a lead at the Bernabeu with a left-footed thunderbolt from the heavens with just 17 minutes remaining in the latest El Clasico.

After the two sides traded goals in the first half, it’s been relatively quiet in the second half until the Croatian stepped up with one of the best goals we’ve seen all season. A perfect strike with his weak foot that flew past a diving Keylor Navas to put the Blaugrana into the lead.
