Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba reckons beating Real Madrid is almost as good as winning the Champions League.

The left-back was in superb form for the hosts in their 5-1 win over Los Blancos at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

He set up Philippe Coutinho for the opening goal and was a threat throughout the match down the left flank.

He gave his thoughts after the match and explained why the win is so important to him.

“I feel like a culé and for that I celebrated the Coutinho goal. To beat Madrid is almost like winning the Champions League. We just suffered after the start of the second half, when they could have equalised.”

Barcelona have enjoyed some big wins in the Clasico, and Sunday’s is another to add to the collection.
