"Winning the Clasico is always important though there are a lot of matches left, they're a direct rival, but we still have to fight a lot, Real Madrid's Nacho said after the match. Now Madrid will be facing Liverpool for the return league of the UEFA Champions League quarter finals this Wednesday this week so winning this particular game means a lot to them. Zinedine Zidane's side moved up to 66 points each with Atletico Madrid and now Madrid sits on top of the league table with goals difference, Atletico have a game in hand when they visit Real Betis this Sunday and now pressure mount on Atletico to win the game, should they lose to the game means they will be at the second place whiles Barca dropped to third place with 65 points.
