Julio Baptista struck a stunning half-volley to earn Real Madrid a sensational win at Barcelona and give the Spanish champions a seven-point lead at the top of the Primera Liga table heading into the winter break.

The former Arsenal forward fired home against the run of play to stun the Catalans and heap further pressure on Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard.
