Updates on Cristiano Ronaldo's injury

Ronaldo's right ankle was hurt when Gerard Pique stepped on it while unsuccessfully trying to stop him from scoring an equalizer in the 15th minute.

"Messi put him under a bit of pressure in the tunnel, I don't know if there are cameras, maybe he caused him to referee in the second half in a different way", said Ramos.

"It's a small thing", Real coach Zinedine Zidane said afterwards.

The Blaugrana have the league title all wrapped up, while Los Merengues are preparing for the UEFA Champions League final later this month against Liverpool.

Madrid was dominating the match when Barcelona right back Sergi Roberto was shown a direct red card in first-half injury time for swiping his hand at Marcelo's face as tempers flared.


Barcelona and Real Madrid battled to a 2-2 draw in a Clasico that saw tempers flare and Lionel Messi and Gareth Bale score brilliant goals.

That's the verdict of former Liverpool ace Luis Garcia, who believes the Portugal worldwide is happy winning trophies at the Bernabeu.

Marco Asensio came off the bench to replace Ronaldo, with the game ending 2-2. After initially taking treatment, Ronaldo played on for 31 minutes here before Zidane chose to substitute him at half-time, which may at least offer Real encouragement.

Suarez also had a goal ruled out for offside, while Madrid were denied a late penalty when Marcelo was tripped in the area by Jordi Alba.

Barca is now three matches away from an unbeaten season. Being a man down only liberated the home side as they piled on forward with glee, but found Navas a barrier tough to breach after the second goal. As the Barcelona players trudged off the pitch following a pulsating 2-2 draw, the staff lined-up before the dugout to given them the "pasillo". Now, after avoiding defeat against Real, Barcelona have passed the biggest test in their quest for going the entire La Liga season unbeaten.
