WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking on Ziggo Sport, De Jong said: "Yes, I am very satisfied. We won 2-1 and the gap is now twelve points. It looks good.
He also added on regular game time at Barcelona and possible move away from the club: "It is a lot better, yes, it gives me great satisfaction. We are now first and I play almost everything. No, I don't think so. In principle, I am very happy at Barcelona."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Catalan giants got the better of their rivals for the third time in four Clasicos this season. While Real Madrid won the season's first league meeting, Barca have triumphed in three subsequent matchups - each of which came in a different competition.
