You can now experience what it feels like to be part of El Clasico after Real Madrid defender David Alaba wore a GoPro on his chest during the club's pre-season clash against Barcelona. Check out the POV footage below. This is great.
Two of Europe's biggest sides went head to head at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, and it was new boy Raphinha that scored the game's only goal to hand Barca their first El Clasico win of the season.
The Brazilian forward, who completed a £55 million move from Leeds United earlier this month, pounced on a poor clearance from Los Blancos centre-back Eder Militao by unleashing a cracking left-footed strike from range.
How about this for a finish?

Barcelona went on to defend their slender lead and gain the upper hand over their bitters rivals ahead of the new campaign.
On a far less serious note, fans got to experience what it feels like to be part of an El Clasico after Madrid released POV footage of defender David Alaba's journey to kick-off.
"This is what the Austrian sees before the match starts," Los Blancos wrote on their socials. "From his exit from the locker room, passing through the tunnel, greeting ex-teammates like Lewandowski and much more."
You can see the full two minute clip from Real Madrid's YouTube channel below. We reckon broadcasters should bring this type of content to our screens on a regular basis.
The clip was met with universal praise online. One fan commented: "A unique experience. I always imagine being a player and receiving that energy from the fans," while another said: "This is actually really cool. We want to see more of this!"
A third wrote: "This is wonderful to watch games like this; to think that you are on the field and play live in an atmosphere of enthusiasm. I could have watched an entire match like this and it would have been great."
A fourth said: "I could feel that Lewandoski hug."

After the full-time whistle, Barcelona boss Xavi said the first half was "brilliant" but the second half was, in his own words, complicated.
“We came here to win and we did it," he said. "We suffered towards the end of the game but I am still satisfied with today’s match.
“We were the better team. At Barcelona, there are no friendly matches. We always want to win, especially against Real Madrid."
