The Catalan giants now have 96 wins compared to Real Madrid’s 95 - the two teams have also played out 51 draws.
Interestingly, it’s been some time since Barcelona have been ahead in the series.
Barcelona’s win means they are unbeaten in four meetings against Real Madrid this season in La Liga and the Copa del Rey.
Ernesto Valverde’s side have won 5-1 and 1-0 in La Liga and drew 1-1 and won 3-0 in the Copa del Rey.
The two teams are not scheduled to play again this season, although they could still meet if they both progress in the Champions League.
