Lionel Messi weaved his magic to keep 10-man Barcelona's unbeaten season alive as a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou on Sunday left Real Madrid sweating over an injury to Cristiano Ronaldo. Luka Modric was critical of how the system worked in Japan in 2016, and Gareth Bale said he was not a fan of the system when his side had two goals ruled out in the semifinal against Al Jazira in December.

The benchmark of 18 was set by the iconic Alfredo Di Stefano, widely considered to be the greatest player in Madrid's illustrious history.

So which players impressed most for Barca? The flick went toward the net and found Ronaldo, who tapped it past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The result means Barcelona are still unbeaten in La Liga and remain 15 points clear of Real Madrid, who in turn trail their city rivals Atletico Madrid by three points.

However, the Portugal forward hurt his ankle in the process and was substituted at halftime.

"We have to finish as high as possible, and what matters most to me is to prepare for the Champions League final, and that is done through our intensity in the matches".

He is survived by his son Tristan Harvey; brother Stewart Harvey; and nephew Bryan Harvey. In 1996, three people were injured when a drunken driver ran over their tent.

Afterwards neither side was able to score a victor as Barcelona settled for the draw in a game marred by controversies in front of almost 97,000 crowd as they continued their unbeaten campaign.

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

That goal took Messi's clasico record to 26 goals.

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. Bale received a pass from Marco Asensio on that possession. We wanted to win and Madrid had a very good game in general.

Zinedine Zidane announced a while ago that his men were not going to give the LaLiga champions a guard of honour because Barcelona did not give Real one after they won the FIFA Club World Cup.
