Cristiano Ronaldo suffers injury weeks before Champions League final

Luis Suarez got the opening goal for Barca but Ronaldo was on hand to score his 18th Clasico goal thus equalling Alfredo Di Stefano's Real Madrid record.

Ronaldo played on until halftime, when he was replaced by Marco Asensio. With this result, Barcelona are likely to end the season as invincibles as they are yet to lose a game in the league.

Bale had risked getting sent off for raking his studs against Samuel Umtiti's leg but escaped without a booking on that occasion and Roberto was sent off moments later for hitting Marcelo following an off-the-ball tussle.

Both sides pushed for a victor and Real could have had a penalty when Jordi Alba caught Marcelo but Barca clung on to remain unbeaten in the league with three games to go.

There was nothing too much to play for but pride and honour in the eye-catching encounter as the Catalan giants have already been crowned league champions.

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.

Attack On Journalists Is An Attack on Democracy
The BBC said one of its Afghan reporters, Ahmad Shah, was killed the same day in a separate attack in the eastern Khost province. In 2002, he became a full-time photo stringer, rising through the ranks to become the bureau's chief photographer.

Real Madrid controlled the game in the closing stages, but Messi had two quick chances but could not pull Barca ahead against the run of play. "We wanted to win it, but the red card set us back, especially against a side like Madrid".

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

Both sides pushed for a victor and Real could have had a penalty when Jordi Alba caught Marcelo but Barca clung on to remain unbeaten in the league with three games to go.

Messi earned himself a yellow for a hard tackle on Ramos before Roberto responded to Marcelo's bump from behind by slapping at his face.

Barca, however, took the lead in the second half as Messi scored a brilliant individual goal only for Gareth Bale, who could earlier have been sent off, to have the last word in a thrilling Clasico, his emphatic strike earning Real a deserved draw. We have many players to come in for those missing, and that is the most important thing.
