Leeds United winger Jordan Botaka was hugely impressed with Casemiro's performance in Real Madrid's 2-1 El Clasico win away at Barcelona.

In a fiesty La Liga encounter at the Camp Nou, the game had to wait until the 56th minute for a goal, when Gerard Pique headed Barcelona ahead.

But Barcelona's lead did not last long as Karim Benzema drew Real Madrid level in the 62nd minute in sublime style, with a sensational scissor kick.

Sergio Ramos received a second yellow card in the 83rd minute, being sent off as a result, while Cristiano Ronaldo then scored the winner for the visitors with five minutes of the game left, making no mistake with a superb finish.

Botaka feels that Real Madrid's strike force of Ronaldo, Benzema and Gareth Bale, who had a goal ruled out, enjoyed a good El Clasico. However, the winger was keen to give special mention to Brazilian midfielder Casemiro.


The Leeds winger took to Twitter to write: "BBC did a great job today..

"But did anyone notice how good Casimero was today..?" 

Casemiro clocked up all 90 minutes at the Camp Nou for Real Madrid, helping Los Blancos keep a firm grip of the game on enemy territory.

Botaka meanwhile was not in the Leeds squad for their 2-1 defeat at Rotherham United on Saturday.
