    • KICK OFF
    • 45'
      What an incredible clearance from Marcelo! Neymar hits the byline once again and reverses a perfect pass into the area for Suarez, who turns the attempt at goal, only to be denied by the Brazilian, who somehow gets back on the line to make the headed block!

      Full time in the Santiago Bernabeu! Barcelona put in one of the great Clasico performances in recent years and inflict a lot of psychological damage to Real Madrid in the process as they run out comprehensive 4-0 winners away in La Liga. Suarez netted a double, while Neymar and Iniesta also got on t

      Half time in the Spanish capital. As a spectacle, the only thing that has disappointed so far has been Real Madrid as Rafa Benitez side simply have not turned up as of yet. Barcelona are cruising heading into the break with a 2-0 lead after two brilliant goals from Luis Suarez and Neymar, who look l

      Arguably the biggest bit of team news today concerns a player who isn't starting, but does indeed make his return from injury, and that player is Lionel Messi. He won't like being put on the bench, but if Luis Enrique needs his talisman it is not a bad option to have. There are indeed two changes fo

      The atmosphere at Madrid is in contrast to the vibrant atmosphere in the Barcelona camp at the moment. Even with the absence of Messi, Suarez and Neymar have stepped up to the plate massively and seem to be scoring for fun in the final third, but as we all know, form doesn't usually play too much of

      Madrid's last match in La Liga has saw the squad, and manager Rafa Benitez, come under scrutiny. Despite a promising start to the game with an outstanding Sergio Ramos bicycle kick, the capital club crumbled after the break and ended up losing 3-2 away to Sevilla, which saw them subsequently lose pa

      The last clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona came in the Spanish Primera Division back in March, when the Catalan side ran out narrow 2-1 winners at the Camp Nou thanks to goals from Jeremy Mathieu and Luis Suarez. This result was revenge against Los Blancos, who won the previous match 3-1 at th
    • 0'
      Without tempting fate, it does seem like we should be guaranteed some goals tonight, as both teams have managed to score in each of the last nine Clasico encounters. This goal rush is the most concentrated since all the way back in 1952, where an incredible run of 13 matches with both teams scoring

      This season, both sides have had their fair share of injury problems at various points, but it seems to be the case that this fixture comes at a time when all star players may be available. The most notable potential absentee is Lionel Messi, who has been out for an extended period with a knee injur

      The football world will have its eyes fixed on one match tonight, and it is the one that features in the Spanish capital between these two European juggernauts. Perhaps predictably, Madrid and Barca find themselves in the top two positions in La Liga and look poised to go head-to-head for the champi

      Good evening football fans! Welcome to LIVE coverage of the Spanish Primera Division clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona from the Santiago Bernabeu. That's right – it is time for the Clasico!
    • 1'
      THE CLASICO IS UNDER WAY!
    • 3'
      Ronaldo receives the ball to feet in the left channel and bursts his way into the penalty area before hitting the byline and going for the reverse pass inside, but the retreating Pique sends behind for the first corner kick of the match. Barca will certainly be wary of the threat that the Portuguese
    • 5'
      As you would expect in a Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu, any time Barcelona are retaining possession in those central areas they are being met with a chorus of boos from the Real Madrid faithful. Like recent Spain matches, Gerard Pique is the target of the jeers from the stands, but to be fair to
    • 7'
      Suarez and Neymar, who have been absolutely outstanding in recent weeks with their cohesion in the final third, look to link-up for the first time here with a neat one-two on the edge of the box. The former eventually collects and fires a strike at goal, but it goes high and wide over the bar.
    • 8'
      VITAL interception from Bravo! Ronaldo, who has popped up down the right wing this time, leaves Alba for dead with a tricky stepover before darting towards goal at tremendous pace. From wide, he fires a cross along the six-yard box but before Benzema can turn it home, the Barca keeper dives off his
    • 10'
      A definite tactic of Barcelona here is to slow down the tempo of the match to almost walking pace in the early stages in an attempt to curb any ascendancy of the hosts. It looks to be working so far, with frustration creeping in for Madrid and their fans.
    • 11'
      G L. Suárez Assist Sergi Roberto
    • 11'
      Sergi Roberto gave the assist.
    • 11'
      GOOOOAAALLL!!! GOOOAAAALLLLL FOR BARCELONA! Sergi Roberto skips past Modric with ease in the middle of the park before shifting a lovely pass into the feet of Suarez to the right. The Uruguayan then sends a fantastic finish into the bottom left corner with the outside of his foot! Brilliant move! On
    • 13'
      Iniesta picks up the ball in a deep position in midfield and shakes off the attentions of Kroos before sending a quite stunning diagonal pass to the feet of Sergi Roberto down the right wing. The youngster decides against hitting it first time and instead tees up Rakitic, but the resulting strike on
    • 15'
      Some worrying scenes for Barcelona at the moment as Mascherano is currently down clutching his groin after a collision with James. The Argentine has had some problems with an injury in that area recently, but luckily for him and his team it just looks like an impact knock, so he should be okay to co
    • 17'
      Penalty shout for Real Madrid! We get our first real glimpse of Bale as the Welshman cuts inside from the right wing to send a teasing left-footed cross to the back post. Ronaldo attempts to get on the end of it but goes down inside the box after wrestling with Dani Alves! It did look like they were
    • 19'
      Dani Alves risks coming under the wrath of the Santiago Bernabeu crowd here as he puts the ball out of play due to the fact his team-mate, Alba, is down injured after taking a nasty knock to the ankle from Bale. The left-back should be alright, but the studs were showing in that 50/50 challenge from
    • 21'
      We are just about approaching the midway point of this clash now and Barcelona can be quite happy with their display so far. Real Madrid are yet to find their feet but this could possibly be attributed to the fact that Bale, James, and Benzema are all not fully match fit.
    • 23'
      J. Rodríguez goes into the referee's book.
    • 23'
      Neymar receives the ball to feet whilst hugging the touchline down the left flank and then typically cuts inside to drive towards goal into the centre. He successfully jinks past the challenge of James but the Colombian makes sure he doesn't get too much further forward and trips the Barca man up be
    • 25'
      Sergi Roberto should be scoring! The 23-year-old drifts into a decent position inside the box and picks up the ball after a lashed pass from Rakitic before taking an assured touch and getting the shot away. He didn't get his body over the ball though and the resulting strike goes way over, not posin
    • 27'
      SI J. Mathieu SO Sergi Roberto
    • 27'
      J. Mascherano is replaced with J. Mathieu.
    • 27'
      Unfortunately for Barcelona, Mascherano won't be able to continue as it appears he did indeed pick up a recurrence of that groin injury in that tackle with James. He'll be forced to come off, and his replacement in the centre of Barca's defence will be Jeremy Mathieu, who scored in the Clasico last
    • 29'
      Alba stretches his legs down the left wing and goes on the overlap towards the byline before playing inside to Neymar. The Brazilian attempts to fire a teasing cross along the box but Varane is perfectly positioned at the front post to divert behind for a corner kick. The Catalan side are looking re
    • 31'
      Dani Alves goes into the referee's book.
    • 31'
      Dani Alves is the latest player to go into the book and it is deservedly so as he halts a pacey looking Madrid counterattack by blocking off the marauding run of Ronaldo. Even though he committed the foul, it is the Brazilian who comes out the worst from the collision as he just catches an elbow to
    • 33'
      Madrid are enjoying a nice little period of sustained possession here but unfortunately for them it is coming in areas which simply aren't causing any problems for Barca. Enrique's men, typically, are continually hunting and harrying their opposition in an attempt to reclaim the ball as quickly as p
    • 35'
      Ten minutes to go in the first half of the Clasico and if Madrid continue playing the way they have done, then they could come on the end of a damaging loss against their greatest rivals. Barca are looking relatively comfortable out there, but that could all change with a goal from Benitez's men.
    • 37'
      Benzema is really not looking match fit out there after missing the last six fixtures, and the Frenchman passes up a great opportunity at the back post as he miss-kicks a bouncing ball just a couple of yards out with the goal gaping! It probably should be 1-1!
    • 39'
      G Neymar Assist Sergi Roberto
    • 39'
      Assist by Iniesta.
    • 39'
      GOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLL FOR BARCELONA!!! THE CATALAN SIDE DOUBLE THEIR LEAD! Iniesta drifts through the middle completely unopposed and stabs a through pass in between the Madrid defenders for Neymar, who glides towards goal before squeezing a strike under the oncoming Navas! Two-nil!
    • 41'
      This Santiago Bernabeu crowd do not know what has hit them here! Barcelona have picked off their team with such efficiency that Real Madrid have barely had a chance to get going since the start of the match. The hosts have been second best in every department up until now.
    • 43'
      The only voices that can be heard inside the stadium at the moment is the very small pocket of Barcelona fans in the corner. The lacklustre performance of Los Blancos so far has meant that their fans don't really have too much to cheer about!
    • 45'
      Two minutes of added time here and Madrid are begging for half-time at the moment as they are already looking extremely fatigued at having to chase the ball about so much, and with some borderline unfit players out there, that makes for a bad combination.
    • 46'
      We are back under way in this Spanish Primera Division clash!
    • 48'
      IT SHOULD BE 2-1! Madrid come out of the blocks quickly after the break and Marcelo leads the charge down the left wing! The Brazilian eventually receives the ball again later in the move and gets a great sight of goal, but slams it disappointingly into the side-netting with plenty of team-mates wai
    • 50'
      SAVE FROM BRAVO! James, who has struggled to get into the match up until now, picks up the ball in his favourite position just in front of the opposition defence and then sends a bouncing volley aimed at the bottom left corner, only to see his attempt palmed behind by the Barca keeper!
    • 51'
      Sergio Ramos receives a yellow card.
    • 51'
      We've got another booking here and no prizes for guessing who it goes to, as Sergio Ramos is the latest player to see yellow. The Madrid captain commits the foul just a yard or two outside his own box after going in late on Sergi Roberto, who looks to be in a bit of pain after the collision.
    • 52'
      What a saaaave from Navas! Neymar steps up to hit the resulting free kick from the Sergio Ramos foul and sends it up and over the wall aimed at the top left corner! The attempt looks poised to find the net but the Costa Rican somehow manages to get across to tip over!
    • 53'
      G Iniesta Assist Sergi Roberto
    • 53'
      Neymar provided the assist.
    • 53'
      GOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLL FOR BARCELONA! THIS IS INCREDIBLE! Iniesta fires a pass into the feet of Neymar and then receives the return ball before firing a sensational finish into the top right corner! Real Madrid are nowhere again! Three-nil!
    • 55'
      SI Isco SO Sergi Roberto
    • 55'
      Isco enters play, replacing J. Rodríguez.
    • 55'
      No surprises that Rafa Benitez has opted to make his first change of the match here and he will introduce Isco in place of the disappointing James, whose only contribution to the match was that shot on goal shortly after the break which was saved.
    • 57'
      SI L. Messi SO Sergi Roberto
    • 57'
      I. Rakitić is replaced with L. Messi.
    • 57'
      Well, if there is one thing you don't want to see whilst 3-0 down, it is the sight of one of the greatest players in history coming off the bench. It is the moment Barcelona fans have been waiting for as Messi makes his return from injury in the Clasico, and he'll come on to replace Rakitic.
    • 59'
      SI Daniel Carvajal SO Sergi Roberto
    • 59'
      Marcelo is replaced with Daniel Carvajal.
    • 59'
      Another quick change from Los Blancos now and it is a relatively strange one from Benitez as he withdrawn Marcelo, with Carvajal coming on at left-back. The Brazilian must have an injury of some sort as his width provides at important outlet down the touchline.
    • 61'
      Real Madrid fans are getting wound up to boiling point here as the traveling Barcelona fans are coming out with a loud 'OLE' each time their team successfully completes a pass. You simply don't see such dominance in the Clasico usually!
    • 63'
      MADRID NOT AWARDED A DEFINITE PENALTY! Bale, who has once again been quiet in the all-white of Real Madrid, fires a left-footed cross in from the wing, which clearly bounces off the hand of Pique before going out for a corner! The referee fails to point to the spot!
    • 65'
      The Real Madrid fans are known at times for their dramatic reaction to their team's performances, and it is no surprise here that the white flags are out in full force which signals their surrender. Hardly a good omen to have them at the ready if your team are behind!
    • 67'
      VITAL BLOCK FROM VARANE! Messi almost makes a stunning impact from the bench as he drifts into a pocket of space inside the Madrid box before drilling a strike at the left corner! Luckily for Los Blancos, Varane is positioned to make the interception!
    • 69'
      SAVE FROM BRAVOOOOO! Bale gallops down the right channel with authority and then curls a lovely pass into the centre for Ronaldo, who only has the keeper to beat. He attempts to lift the ball over the oncoming Barca man, who stretches out a strong arm to make the terrific block!
    • 71'
      It looks like the Barca players are desperate to get Messi a goal here, perhaps at the expense of actually finding the net themselves! Suarez is the guilty party here as he has a clear view of goal but opts to return the one-two into his team-mate, who is swiftly tackled! Perhaps not the best if you
    • 73'
      Even with the scoreline the way it is, and with Real Madrid chasing the game, it looks like Barcelona are the more hungry side to score the fourth goal of the Clasico. That would be so psychologically damaging for Real Madrid for the rest of the season, you would feel!
    • 74'
      G L. Suárez Assist Sergi Roberto
    • 74'
      Assist by Jordi Alba.
    • 74'
      GOOOAAAALLL! GOOOAAALL! GOOOAAAL FOR BARCELONA! What a performance this is! Alba moves into an advanced area and slides a pass through to Suarez, who beats the Madrid offside trap before running through on goal and dinking a finish over the oncoming Navas! Four-nil! Incredible!
    • 76'
      Another change from Barcelona here and it will see Munir enter the action in place of the imperious Andres Iniesta, who receives a standing ovation from not only his own fans, but a small minority of the Real Madrid fans too. What a special player!
    • 77'
      SI Munir SO Sergi Roberto
    • 77'
      Munir comes on for Iniesta.
    • 78'
      Bale pops up down the left wing this time and has a little space going forward, which he takes advantage of. He sends a superb, curled cross to the back post and Benzema takes the poor touch before missing the chance, but luckily for him the flag was up!
    • 80'
      Another great save from Bravo! Benzema attempts to make up for an altogether poor performance as he latches on to a high cross to the back post to bullet a header at goal, but the Barca keeper is equal to it and gets across goal to make the block!
    • 82'
      Just under 10 minutes remaining in the Clasico now and this one will go down as one of the all-time best performances from the Blaugrana, who have blew away their closest rivals tonight. After this match, they are overwhelming favourites to go on and claim their second consecutive Liga title.
    • 83'
      Daniel Carvajal is cautioned by the referee.
    • 84'
      Isco is sent off by the referee!
    • 84'
      ISCO SENT OF FOR REAL MADRID! Neymar leaves the Madrid substitute for dead down the left wing, who takes issue with this and decides to boot the Brazilian forcefully right on the knee! Disgraceful from the former Malaga man, who is rightfully given his marching orders! From bad to worse for Los Blan
    • 86'
      Barcelona are STILL searching for more goals here as they look to inflict further damage on this Madrid outfit. Munir is the latest player to come close for Los Cules as he whips a decent strike at goal from inside the box which goes just over.
    • 88'
      It should be 5-0 Barcelona! Neymar drives down the left wing and sends a brilliant cross to the back post, with Munir and Pique waiting! The substitute misses to the right-hand side which enrages his team-mate, who is dying to score against the Madrid boo boys!
    • 90'
      Another excellent save from Bravo! The Chilean has been in superb form tonight and he denies Real Madrid once again as Ronaldo rises high to bullet a signature header to the centre of goal, which is tipped over the crossbar! He has looked unbeatable this evening!
