Real Madrid player ratings: Vinicius Junior humbled & Eduardo Camavinga careless in Copa del Rey defeat
Real Madrid suffered a surprise defeat to an injury-hit Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu, as Xavi's side took the advantage ahead of the return leg at Camp Nou.
A typically tetchy affair between the eternal rivals saw Vinicius Junior booked for an early wrestling match with Frenkie de Jong in a sign of a frustrating night ahead for the Brazilian before Barcelona took the lead after 26 minutes.
The visitors were helped by Madrid as they opened the scoring. An awful pass from Eduardo Camavinga allowed Barcelona to break forward through Franck Kessie. Thibaut Courtois saved the midfielder's shot but the ball ricocheted off Eder Militao and into the back of the net, with Nacho whiffing at a chance to clear it off the line.
Real Madrid ramped up the pressure in the second half but couldn't find an equaliser and now face an uphill task if they are to make it to the final.
