Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Clasico with sprained ankle

Barcelona survived the sending-off of Sergi Roberto to maintain their quest to finish the LaLiga season unbeaten after a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid at the Nou Camp.

Marco Asensio would then replace Ronaldo who had twisted his ankle and minutes later Barcelona restored their lead through Lionel Messi who escaped Ramos to curl in the second goal.

After the match, Zidane told the media: "He doesn't feel good now, but I don't think it is anything serious".

Real keeper Keylor Navas 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 was issued a straight red card.

However, there was to be no more drama as Barcelona withstood Real's risky corner kicks deep into stoppage time to preserve the Catalans' unbeaten season after 35 rounds of La Liga matches, and 42 games overall.

"They said they weren't in the competition, but that's a lie, because you get into the Club World Cup through the Champions League".

The Portuguese star had pulled Madrid level with a goal from close range in the 14th minute, but in the process he was clattered into from behind by Barcelona defender Gerard Pique. They played well and so did we. "Both sides always want to win a game like this".

However, Gareth Bale saved the day for Mardid as his first ever Clasico goal made the tie end even at 2-2. His first shot was saved by Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, the second fired wide of the far post. He looked relatively fine, and had two big opportunities to put Real Madrid up 2-1.

Barcelona began to lose its composure and Jordi Alba shoved Luka Modric before both Suarez and Sergio Ramos were booked for a tussle.

Barcelona's players held an impromptu celebration on the pitch for the result and its domestic double, with the coaching staff giving them the guard of honor that Madrid's players declined to do before kickoff.
