Real scored their first league win at the Nou Camp since 2012, inflicting the first home defeat for Barcelona since February 2015. 
“It is very important to have got the win here for our confidence and for the remainder of the season and with it coming right before our Champions League game in Germany,” said Zidane. 
“We know just how important the Champions League is and we want to advance, so winning here in Barcelona was very important.” 
The Frenchman took over from Rafael Benitez at the start of the year and on Saturday came through his first big test with flying colours.
“I liked everything about my players’ performance. We put in a massive effort and I was pleased with everything, both defensively and attacking-wise,” said the 43-year-old player.
