Barcelona midfielder, Ivan Rakitic is shaking tables as he has subtly suggested that Real Madrid is a ‘dumb’ team.

Rakitic while taking a post-match assessment of Sunday’s El Clasico at Camp Nou submitted that Real Madrid made it too easy for the Barca to cruise to victory in the first El Clasico of the season.

Neither Barcelona nor Real Madrid have hit full throttle this season, but a hat-trick from Luis Suarez helped Barca run out 5-1 victors at Camp Nou.

Real - who are likely to sack manager Julen Lopetegui this week - had got back into the game at 2-1, but Rakitic has suggested that the European champions 'were not clever' when attempting to find an equaliser.

The Croatian is quoted by Marca as saying: "Madrid were not very clever when they had the opportunity to equalise. We were able to get lots of bodies in the box and fight to make sure we stayed in front, then we were in a position to react.

"We played a great match from the first minute to the last, we were totally superior in the result and in the performance. The third goal helped us a lot because when that went in it gave us peace of mind and allowed us to play naturally again."

Barca now sit seven points ahead of Real in the top-flight standings.
