Nou Camp, Barcelona:

Few football games across the world generate as much passion as Barcelona versus Real Madrid.

On this occasion, it was Madrid who took the honours as they won only their second game in 24 years at the Nou Camp with a one nil win.

The game was decided by a piece of Brazilian genius Julio Baptista exchanging a neat one-two with Ruud Van Nistelrooy, before bursting the net with this stunning half volley past the outstretched hands of Victor Valdes.

Barcelona were let down by a rather lacklustre display from Ronaldinho, normally a big performer in games against Real Madrid.

After being unexpectedly named in the starting line up, the former World Player of the year was nowhere close to being his best, being reduced to long range efforts in the second half.
