Barça Maintain Unbeaten Streak In El-Classico Stalemate With 10- Men

Barcelona and Real Madrid battled to a 2-2 draw in a Clasico that saw tempers flare and Lionel Messi and Gareth Bale score brilliant goals.

But he was subbed off at halftime, with Marco Asensio replacing him.

"How long he will need I can not tell you but for him, it is a small problem", Zidane said afterwards.

The replays suggested that Roberto's hands hit Marcelo on his shoulder and the Brazilian fell down immediately.

Ernesto Valverde's men, already crowned champions, are now three matches away from becoming the first team ever to finish a 38-game La Liga season unbeaten. The Champions League final, in 20 days, obviously does.

Despite scoring at the Nou Camp against Barcelona, Ronaldo was withdrawn at halftime after picking up a knock courtesy of a late Gerard Pique tackle.

Atletico Madrid, who lost their unbeaten home record in a 2-0 defeat by Espanyol earlier on Sunday, are second on 75 but have played one game more.

"We will see how we are going to play", he continued. Obviously, we want to win, irrelevant of the table - and they will too, given the situation and our rivalry.

Suarez felt he had been elbowed by Sergio Ramos, prompting the first round of scuffles, before Messi was booked for flying into the defender on the touchline.

Both sides pushed for a victor and Real could have had a penalty when Jordi Alba caught Marcelo but Barca clung on to remain unbeaten in the league with three games to go. Marcelo fell down and the referee didn't hesitate in flashing the red card.

Suarez won the ball back from Raphael Varane after a side-to-side collision and passed to Messi, who used a blistering strike of his left boot to drive the ball just inside the post.

Messi looked poised to get another goal but Bale made it 2-2 by using one touch to curl Asensio's pass around Ter Stegen.

Zidane revealed after the game that the player was "worried because the ankle is swollen, but not so much".

Alaves routed Malaga 3-0, and Getafe beat Las Palmas 1-0.
