Barcelona's Argentinian forward Lionel Messi celebrates at the end of the Spanish league football match between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid CF at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona.

Ronaldo equalized for Real Madrid in the 14th minute after Luis Suarez had given Barca the lead in the 10th minute while in the second half Messi gave Barca the lead again with an individual effort in the 52nd minute.

So which players impressed most for Barca?

Real keeper Keylor Navas had saved superbly from Messi before Barca's hopes were hit in first-half injury time when Sergi Roberto and Marcelo appeared to clash off the ball, and the home player sent off.

The Tuesday night lineup marked the first time in nearly 40 years one team started the three youngest players in the game. The bullpen has been lead by Arodys Vizcaino , Shane Carle and Dan Winkler, who all have ERAs under 1.50.

Although they were down to 10 men, Barcelona continued its unbeaten run in La Liga with the draw.

Speaking after the game, however, Real manager Zinedine Zidane said "we're not anxious about the final", but added that "I can't say how long he'll be out for". Karim Benzema then headed the ball across goal and Ronaldo was there to finish the move, nipping ahead of Gerard Pique to score.

Pique covered his mouth to avoid being heard by cameras, but it visibly upset Nacho, who shouted at him: "How can you complain, if they have already expelled us 17 times already?"

An ankle injury forced the Portuguese superstar off at half-time and there were fears that he could miss the Champions League final.

Modi also appreciated the role of active social media users who have 'helped in safeguarding the freedom of press and expression'. The police said a motive for the attack had not yet been determined, but they were looking at Sestoso's radio work for clues.

Ronaldo's goal was his 25th in the league this season but was not enough to help his side who are now third in La Liga with three games remaining.

That goal took Messi's clasico record to 26 goals.

"It's tough playing down a man, especially against Madrid", SuAirez said after the game, as reported by Barcelona website. The first 45 minutes showed that both teams wanted the win and were ready to go full throttle to get the same.

Real Madrid wasted the opportunity to cut the deficit to second-placed Atletico Madrid, who were stunned by Espanyol 0-2 earlier in the day.
