After quite some time, we got to see the Andres Iniesta of old, as the diminutive midfielder dictated the pace of the play from the middle of the park.


Iniesta may not exactly be the force he once was, but the Barcelona captain put in a spellbinding performance in midfield against Real Madrid on Saturday. The Spaniard was a constant threat with his clever passing and movement, setting up Brazilian teammate Neymar for the second with a delightful through ball.

He scored a spectacular goal too, as Neymar played an expert backheel lay-off to Inieasta, who happily fired the ball into the top corner past a hapless Keylor Navas.
