  • Real Madrid

Barcelona continued their invisibility run in the Spanish La Liga as the El-Classico ended 2-2 on Sunday night at the Camp Nou.

After being shown by television cameras wincing and limping, he was then taken off for Marco Asensio at the break.

The result keeps Barcelona's record 35-match unbeaten season in La Liga going with three games remaining in their season.

"He doesn't feel good now, but I don't think it is anything serious", Zidane said.

The line on his injury from the club as the game played out was that the 33-year-old had "sprained" his ankle, but as reported by Goal, the situation and the severity of his injury is as yet unclear.

The television personality said she was looking forward to the future when Stormi was "old enough to bring her everywhere". It would be totally unlike Kylie to change her mind and use a different name, especially about something so important.

Midfielder Andres Iniesta, making his 38th and final Clasico appearance, added: "We're still unbeaten after playing a large part of the game with a man less".

Ronaldo's ankle appeared to be trod on by Barcelona defender Gerard Pique as he scored Madrid's first equaliser in the 15th minute.

"Everyone who likes football can be happy with a game like that".

Towards the end of first half, Roberto got a direct red card and was sent off.

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.

Marcos Rojo , making his first start since February 3, did his best to hook it away but it was over the line - just. Pogba and Martial looked to connect on a couple of occasions, but again, they could not produce anything.

Barca players crowded around him at the end of the first 45 minutes, and the home fans jeered him and his assistants off the pitch. Obviously, we want to win, irrelevant of the table - and they will too, given the situation and our rivalry.

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

Suarez won the ball back from Raphael Varane after a side-to-side collision and passed to Messi, who used a blistering strike of his left boot to drive the ball just inside the post. With most of the players visibly exhausted and struggling to recover on defense, both sides had chances to get the win.

Relegated Las Palmas gave Getafe's slim European hopes a huge hit with a shock 3-0 win.
