Despite defeat, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says he enjoyed his first El Clasico experience.

Real lost 2-1 at Barcelona on Saturday night.

"It was a great match with fantastic atmosphere. I think it was a great spectacle against a great team. We set out to win," said Ancelotti.

Asked about the match officials, Ancelotti added: "I don't talk about percentages. I am only going to talk about that particular episode and the match. I think in the first half we were too worried and we didn't play, and in the second we played a lot better. We were in complete control and Barcelona had a lot of difficulty defending. I don't know about percentages. I am talking about this because I was able to see it. In Chiellini's move the other day I wasn't able to see it."
