Real's Bale denies 10-man Barca win in feisty Clasico

Ronaldo appeared to sustain a knock to his ankle as he bundled home a 14th-minute equaliser for Real at the Camp Nou.

Luis Suarez opened the scoring ten minutes into the encounter, volleying straight from a cross by Sergi Roberto who ran 50 yards before producing the superb cross.

"We watched an incredible game of football and I can't say if the draw is fair or not", said Real coach Zinedine Zidane, who would not be drawn on the referee's performance. So, we just want to congratulate him on his career and wish him luck in the future'. "He is a little anxious because his ankle is a bit swollen but he said it was only minor".

Barcelona has matches left against Villarreal, Levante and Real Sociedad to try and become the first team to go unbeaten in the competition since the 1930s, when it consisted of 10 teams compared to 20 now. "We played really well, generally, from the first minute to the last", Ramos said.

"I enjoyed this Clasico, even if it wasn't played in the best conditions, they're games to enjoy". It was the Welshman's 15th goal in 24 matches this year.

Bale was then lucky not to be sent off for stabbing his studs into Samuel Umtiti's calf and moments later Sergi did see red, as he threw an arm into the face of Marcelo.

As well as Bale's reckless challenge, Suarez fouled Raphael Varane in the build-up to Messi's goal while Marcelo should have had a late penalty after he was brought down by Jordi Alba.

La Liga announced in November that a video assistant referee (VAR) system will be implemented from the 2018-19 campaign, and Zidane suggested its presence in the Clasico may have altered the result.

"We had a good opportunity to win today, clearly, we had a lot of chances to score, especially in the first half".

Valverde added: "It was clearly a hard match to referee".

The fourth El Clasico of the season ended in a draw after both Real Madrid and Barcelona scored two goals each.
