REAL MADRID 2 FC BARCELONA 3 | BARÇA KEEPS LALIGA ALIVE

REAL MADRID 2 - FC BARCELONA 3 is the final result of the "Clasico" celebrated tonight as part of Round 33 of LaLiga. Real Madrid managed to turn an adverse result with 10 men, after Sergio Ramos was sent off with a red card, when just on substitute James Rodriguez scored the draw. It looked things would end this way, however Lionel Messi got the winner in the last minute to pour cold water over the "Santiago Bernabeu" Stadium.

The result opens the Liga title race as both currently share top spot of the classification ladder, with Real Madrid still keeping a game in hand which gives them a slight advantage. However, Real Madrid will now feel the pressure as a slip from here till the end of the season could see Barça overrun them for the Spanish Liga title


Real Madrid - FC Barcelona

Impressive game of Football that lived up to expectations. Tense & very competitive with both sides creating numerous goal opportunities. The goalkeepers from both teams were very active & played an important role for their sides as they stopped important goal chances.

Real Madrid - FC Barcelona

As expected a match full of controversies with red cards ( Casemiro & Marcelo ) not given & possible penalties not seen ( Umtiti on Ronaldo in the 2nd min). Plus Sergio Ramos was sent off in the 77th min which put Real Madrid in a clear disadvantage.

But the man of the match was Lionel Messi who caused the yellow card on Casemiro ( later taken off mid 2º half) & was the person Ramos fouled to be sent off. However, it was his two goals that steered his team onto the victory, scoring the winner in the 92nd min of the match.

Real Madrid also had players to mention: on the negative side Bale was substituted in the 33rd min when he fell injured, positively Carvajal was outstanding on his wing along with Marcelo & Kaylor Navas was a multi goal saver. Real Madrid missed many chances including very clear moments from Benzema hitting the post, Kroos & Modric deflected by Stegen with an over anxious Asensio missing opportunities. These failed attempts turned out to be costly in the end. Lastly Cristiano Ronaldo was not the decisive element of past "clasico games" & was missed.


Deserved win for Barça for their pure perseverance, & decisive Messi, who tipped the balance towards Barça to keep the Liga title race alive for his Club.
