Barcelona has matches left against Villarreal, Levante and Real Sociedad to try and become the first team to go unbeaten in the competition since the 1930s, when it consisted of 10 teams compared to 20 now.

Sergi Roberto received a red card in stoppage time during the first half Sunday at Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain, meaning he was ineligible to complete the rivalry bout.

It was Luiz Suarez who drew first blood by scoring the first goal in the 10 minute of the game.

Pique covered his mouth to avoid being heard by cameras, but it visibly upset Nacho, who shouted at him: "How can you complain, if they have already expelled us 17 times already?" "I never do", Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said.


Both teams were angry at the officials. And with little to play for apart from a second-place finish, there is no need to risk Ronaldo.

It was mainly Madrid until the final whistle, but Barcelona held on with few problems to continue their unbeaten run and cement their domestic dominance.

The joy at Camp Nou was short-lived.

Ronaldo appeared to shake off the injury.


Messi received a yellow card in the 45th minute for a poor slide into Sergio Ramos.

Tempers boiled over before the break as Roberto saw red for lashing out at Marcelo, the Barca full-back seeming to push his hand into his opponent's face.

Ronaldo will be aiming to win his fourth Champions League trophy with the Galaticos and a third consecutive in five years helping them with 15 goals so far. Lionel Messi still remains the one with the most goals scored in clasico fixtures. Bale received a pass from Marco Asensio on that possession. "We had a lot of chances".

Madrid's defence for not making a guard of honour was that Barcelona had refused to give them one at the Santiago Bernabeu after they won the Club World Cup in December, but Bartolomeu dismissed this reasoning.


Alaves routed Malaga 3-0, and Getafe beat Las Palmas 1-0.
