Messi wheels away after scoring last night.

Clasico carnage: the highest scoring derbies (1)

Published 1 Comments

Barcelona launched an audacious assault last night at the Bernabeu, putting four past Real Madrid in the most dramatic Clasico in recent memory to reinvigorate their title defence.

Andres Iniesta initially gave the Catalan club the lead early on, only for Real to fight back through two quick-fire goals from Karim Benzema.

Lionel Messi helped his side pull level before the break, and the goalscoring didn't stop there, with no less than three penalties awarded and scored in the second 45 - along with a red card for Sergio Ramos - to make it 4-3 to Barcelona at the final whistle.

Despite all the drama however last night's game wasn't the highest scoring game in modern history.
