Barcelona sports chief Andoni Zubizarreta was delighted with the manner of their win over Real Madrid.

Zubi felt they were always in control.

"We played an intelligent match, we played in a way that best suited us," said Zubizarreta after today's victory in the Clásico. "It's important to be able to read a match and this Saturday our rivals played a tactical game. I think we interpreted it well."

On goalscorers Neymar and Alexis Sanchez, Zubi added: "You can't ask anything more of Neymar. He showed his quality, his audacity and he scored a goal in his debut. Alexis scored a type of goal that gets the fans out of their seats. It looked as though he didn't have too much room to shoot, but he resolved the play in spectacular fashion."
