BARCELONA, Spain – Sergio Ramos has shown once again why the Spanish defender is the heart of Real Madrid, leading the team to a 3-1 win at Barcelona – with a little help from the assistant referee video

Ramos created and scored the winning goal in their first meeting of the season in an empty Camp Nou on Saturday The clásico was another victory Ramos has led in his long career at Madrid, especially since the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo he two years ago

Ramos’ importance to Madrid translated into back-to-back defeats on the eve of the trip to their fiercest rivals Ramos was knocked out of the half-time loss to Cadiz due to an injury to the knee last weekend which also sidelined him for Shakhtar’s midweek defeat in the Champions League Without him, the team was apathetic and overwhelmed

With him back barking orders in the center of his defense, Madrid were the aggressive and compact team that won La Liga Barcelona last season

Ramos also proved essential in the opposing zone when he used his tricks to fight Clement Lenglet to gain a position for a high ball With Lenglet pulling on his shirt, Ramos fell away from him on the grass, then complained vehemently.After viewing the video screen on the touchline, referee Juan Martínez ruled that Lenglet had prevented Ramos from contest the ball

This sent Ramos to the penalty spot where he managed a low shot past Neto to permanently restore Madrid’s lead in the 63rd minute

« Lenglet and I are pushing our defense to the limit, and in this case it was very clear, » said Ramos « He grabbed me as I was jumping The VAR is there to help and I think it is ‘was a penalty We then went for a third goal after taking this blow to morale instead of just sitting »

« The penalty decision had a final influence on the score », said Koeman « It’s Ramos’ foul first on Lenglet Lenglet grabbed his shirt, but not enough to knock the player down At least not enough to knock the player away from you, but rather to pull the player towards you So, for me it is not a penalty « 

Madrid lead the league with 13 points Barcelona have 7 points with a game in hand – and extra pressure when they travel to Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday

More than the result, it could be remembered as the COVID-19 clásico, played in the largest stadium in Europe without any fan to enjoy it in person

Camp Nou is normally a cauldron of Barcelona supporters circling the date of the season’s home game against Madrid in their calendar Barcelona faithful greet both sides with huge mosaics in the club’s blue and burgundy colors and use their 90,000 lungs to make it as uncomfortable as possible for visitors

On Sunday, the imposing three floors of Camp Nou heated by bright sunlight were empty, except for the reserve players in face masks

It was Koeman’s first clásico since returning to his former club this summer with the mission to rebuild the squad that didn’t win a trophy last season

Koeman, who approved of the squad overhaul upon arrival, didn’t hesitate to make big decisions as he fielded two teenagers in one of the most important games of the season Koeman left Antoine Griezmann on the bench and surprised by starting Pedro « Pedri » González alongside fellow 17-year-old Ansu Fati in attack

Pedri did not shine, but Fati was the driving force behind Barcelona in his new attacking position ahead of Lionel Messi

Koeman also started his new arrival Sergiño Dest The US defender impressed with his marking of Vinícius Júnior and his forays from the right flank

« It was a really tough game. We had our chances, they had their chances, » said Dest. « It was my first clásico, and it’s a great game, of course, but it’s really too bad we lost « 

To recreate the atmosphere a bit before kick-off, the club played recorded sounds of fans singing as the players warmed up and played a recording of the club’s anthem

Federico Valverde hit five minutes for Madrid when he took a deep ball from Karim Benzema and blew it up at the far post

Fati hit back three minutes later The aspiring star stabbed at home his fifth goal in six games on a Jordi Alba assist after Messi found the left-back with a lob to the left side

Barcelona took the initiative after the restart as Dest and Alba found space on the flanks, and Fati found Coutinho with a cross the Brazilian was leading into the side net

That’s when Ramos tilted the game in favor of Madrid – with the help of VAR

Koeman sent forwards Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele, Francisco Trincão and Martin Brathwaite late to push for the equalizer

With his defense exposed, Neto held up as best he could, making three good saves until substitute Luka Modric kicked him off his line and shot in Madrid’s third game
