The match grew testy as the first half wore on, with Messi handed a yellow card for a hard tackle on Sergio Ramos and Roberto being shown straight red for violent conduct after throwing a punch at Marcelo before half-time.

"But knowing what he is like, his style and how he is, I didn't think it was necessary to do so". Ronaldo hurt his lower right leg while canceling out Luis Suarez's opener in the 10th minute but Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane later played down the injury.

"I fouled Varane a little bit because he controls the ball and I catch his foot", Suarez said, per ESPN FC's Sam Marsden. "But it was the referee's decision".

Ramos also said he thought Suarez had been exaggerating his pain when the Uruguayan striker went down after a challenge in the first half. "You have to have that respect".

Celta Vigo's slim hopes of playing in Europe next season suffered another blow when Lucas Perez scored an injury time equalizer for Deportivo la Coruna in the Galicia derby.

With the scores level and the LaLiga champions down to 10 men due to Sergi Roberto's red card, Messi bent a brilliant low finish home to put Barca in front.

"Clasicos should be played like this, it was a handsome game", Suarez told reporters. "We will see what we have to do, and the damage that has been done".




Barca remain unbeaten in the league with three games to go.

"In the end it is a draw, and in the end it looks like Barca will end the season unbeaten", Zidane said.

The post Barcelona Draw With Real To Stay Unbeaten In La Liga appeared first on Channels Television.

On the other side, Real Madrid's Casemiro downplayed the La Liga title, claiming instead that he would rather win the Champions League, which Real Madrid can do for a third consecutive time if they defeat Liverpool in the final on May 26.

As you would expect of any fanbase in Europe, Liverpool supporters are anxious about Cristiano Ronaldo heading into the European Cup final in Kiev on the 26th of May.

The lead lasted just five minutes, though, as Cristian Ronaldo started - and finished - a free-flowing piece of play into Barca's penalty area (WATCH HERE). The draw leaves us with a good taste in our mouth.
