Ronaldo matches Di Stefano record with Clasico goal at Camp Nou

Barca want to preserve unbeaten record when they meet Real in Clasico

Having scored in the first half, Messi inflicted more trauma on Real Madrid as he scored in injury time to silence the Bernabeu and give Barcelona a dramatic 3-2 win.

The La Liga El Clasico between champions FC Barcelona and Real Madrid ended in a 2-2 draw despite the former being reduced to 10 men at the half-time here on Sunday.

Ronaldo also requires only one more goal to hit an impressive landmark for Madrid. The superstar forward heeled a ball back to Toni Kroos while inside the box.

Conversely, Benzema and Ronaldo were both excellent, regularly showing fluid movement and risky intent to repeatedly put Barca under pressure, but whether Bale's goal was enough to convince Zidane that he should receive a more prominent role from now on is dubious.

Madrid was stamping its authority on the contest, Ronaldo heading over and drilling wide of the post either side of being denied at close range by Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Suarez felt he had been elbowed by Sergio Ramos, prompting the first round of scuffles, before Messi was booked for flying into the defender on the touchline. Marcelo fell down and the referee didn't hesitate in flashing the red card.

Suarez missed an early chance after being fed by Messi, but the Uruguay forward put Barca in front in the 10th minute.

Already touted as the world's best player, Messi, in the presence of Ronaldinho, stamped his authority on El Clasico in a way that would become familiar over the following decade.

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.

Ronaldo, who appeared to be injured in the process of scoring, was replaced by Marco Asensio at half-time, while Nelson Semedo plugged the gap left by Roberto by coming on for Philippe Coutinho.

Navas did well to stop Messi wrapping up the points after the Barca star raced clear and that save proved key as Bale struck in the 72nd minute.

"You s**t, you s**t, thinking it's always good to give them (Real Madrid) things", Messi apparently said to the match official, according to Marca. "We will have him ready (to play)". "This is the way to prepare for the final in Kiev".

After a La Liga season freakishly dominated by Messi - top scorer, top assister, top pretty much everything else - it was only appropriate that the magical Argentine would make another big contribution in the final high-profile game of the season.
