Arda Turan failed to make an impact after coming off the bench in his first El Classico derby.

Barcelona suffered a 2-1 defeat against arch rivals Real Madrid at the Camp Nou ending a 39 match unbeaten run in all competitions.

The 29-year-old was named as a substitute and came on for the Croatian international Ivan Rakitic in the 74th minute.

Turan received a rating of 5.89 for his cameo performance off the bench. The Turkish international made no key passes, dribbles or shots on target during his 17 minutes on the field.

The defeat was the first Arda Turan has suffered since joining the reigning La Liga champions from Atletico Madrid.

Despite the defeat Barcelona remain seven points clear of third placed Real at the top of the table with Atleti six points behind in second place.

Barcelona take on Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League next week.
