Barcelona player ratings: Blaugrana maintain unbeaten streak with El Clasico draw

Barcelona 2 Real Madrid 2 La Liga champions stay unbeaten despite Roberto's first-half red

"It's unusual if Sergi did hit Marcelo in the face, knowing Sergi as I do. VAR?"

Their opponents on Wednesday are a Villarreal side who often cause the Catalans problems, although they have not won at Camp Nou in ten years.

And it may well prove to be the last time we will ever see that front three start together, because Bale did little to suggest that he should return to prominence by delivering a disappointingly disconnected display before popping up with an excellent equalising goal to secure a point.

"Our quest continues to finish the league without a loss", said Andres Iniesta, who played his 38th and final game against Madrid before he leaves the club after 16 seasons this summer. Sergi Roberto also impressed, before being sent off. Gerard Pique stepped on his ankle as he unsuccessfully tried to stop the Madrid forward from scoring from close range.

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

Ronaldo now has 450 career goals for Madrid. Marcelo fell down and the referee didn't hesitate in flashing the red card.

He then had a chance to sentence the outcome with a shot which Keylor Navas well saved, but ending his wait of almost six years for a Camp Nou Clasico goal in La Liga was enough to make a suitably big impression.

Worse was to follow after the break when he didn't whistle for a foul as Suarez took down Varane on the way to assisting Messi for Barca's second.

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.

The match was evenly poised and it seemed like both the teams were looking for something more than just a win.

Barcelona's players held an impromptu celebration on the pitch for the result and its domestic double, with the coaching staff giving them the guard of honor that Madrid's players declined to do before kickoff.
