Ivan Rakitic had some sound advice for Barcelona fans after Saturday’s Clasico win over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Croatian midfielder netted the winner with a lovely dink over goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in the first half and said the win needs to be enjoyed.

“With all respect for Real Madrid, there’s still a long way to go. This is a big step forward but there’s still a long way to go.

“We have to enjoy this win together -- all Barcelona fans should have some beers and enjoy it.”

The win means Barcelona are now 12 points ahead of Real Madrid in La Liga with 12 games left to play.
