Post.
That's a huge boost for RM after two losses in a row, while Barca will be very disappointed as they came up just short. It could have easily gone either way though. The positive for them is that Ansu Fati scored in the big clash. That's all from us, thanks for your company and see you again soon!
95'
FT: Barca 1-3 RM!!! All over at the Camp Nou!! Fati cancelled out Valverde's goal and the game could have gone either way in the second half, but the silly VAR penalty given away by Lenglet after pulling Ramos' shirt was the turning point. Ramos converted the spot kick and then Modric killed off the game when Barca threw more men forward. The game could have easily been a draw, but the hosts were always chasing the game after the penalty.
95'
Real Madrid are just keeping the ball playing out time.
94'
Ramos fouls Trincao at midfield.
93'
Nothing comes of the set piece and Real are just two minutes away from their first win here since 2015-16 season. 2 losses and a 0-0 draw since then.
92'
Casemiro is winded here after Dembele's cross is blocked for a corner.
91'
Barca had to try and throw more people forward and they've conceded again.
91'
Five added minutes.
90'
Modric seals the win for RM!!! Modric looks to find Vinicius, Neto slides out to stop him getting there, Rodrygo picks up the loose ball and he passes it to Modric. The Croatian keeps his composure to go round the goalie and fire into the empty net! Nice goal.
89'
Dembele goes down this near side and he slices it wide.
89'
Messi looks to find Braithwaite and the ball goes to Courtois.
87'
Vinicius has a go from distance and it's simple for the GK.
87'
Barca sub: Braithwaite on for Alba.
86'
What a save by Neto!!! Vazquez finds Ramos at the far stick, his shot is brilliantly saved by the GK and Varane heads wide!
86'
Opportunity for RM!!!! Double save by Neto!! Vazquez passes for Kroos in the middle and the Brazilian makes a fine double save! Corner.
85'
52% possession for the home side.
83'
Barca attack, but it comes to nothing.
82'
Triple Barca sub: Pedri, Fati, Busquets off, Griezmann, Dembele, Trincao on
82'
RM sub: Asensio is replaced by Rodrygo.
81'
I think a fair score here would be a draw, but that penalty is the difference at the moment.
80'
The corner comes in and De Jong's header hits Casemiro on the shoulder. Another corner!
79'
Messi's free-kick hits the wall and then goes for a corner.
77'
The TV commentators are saying that Valverde had blurred vision and that's why he went off.
76'
Messi's free-kick goes into the area, Courtois knocks it against his defender and Varane concedes the corner.
75'
Barca are running out of time to find a leveller here. They have just won a free-kick.
72'
The game has gone end to end since Barca fell behind as they are chasing an equaliser.
70'
Pinball in the Madrid box after a Courtois save and the ball strikes Varane's arm after Ramos clears it against his teammate. Definitely not a penalty as he had his arm by his side.
69'
RM sub: Modric on for Valverde.
68'
Valverde is feeling dizzy here and he has gone down.
67'
Barca win a corner here.
65'
Will Barca come back from this?
64'
Barca are arguing, but that was incredibly stupid by the Barca defender with VAR watching.
63'
Ramos scores!!!!! He hits it to the GK's right, Neto goes the right way, but it's right in the corner! 1-2!!!
62'
Alba is carded for the protest and I have to say that is brainless by Lenglet. Why do that when there's VAR? ,
62'
Penalty to Real Madrid!!!
61'
The ref is going to the monitor!!!
60'
Lenglet is really, really stupid as that is a very clear shirt pull. This should be a penalty.
59'

52'
And now Alba goes down this near side and no one is there on the end of it.
51'
Fati!!!! Barca go up the other end, Fati tries to beat Courtois at the far post, but it goes just wide.
51'
Casemiro has a punt from distance and it goes wide.

47'
Real Madrid win a corner here and then earn a second.
46'
Back underway!!!
45'
HT: Barca 1-1 RM!! Half-time at the Camp Nou! An exciting first period here and a draw is very fair. Valverde put RM ahead after 5 minutes, but Fati levelled just three minutes later. The game was then very open for a good 15-20 minutes and Messi and Benzema had brilliant chances, but they were denied by the keepers. RM lost Nacho to injury and it's all to play in the 2nd period.
45'
The corner comes in, but Barca clear.
45'
Lovely pass by Casemiro to Vinicius and he wins a corner off Pique.
45'
Two added minutes.

RM sub: Nacho is replaced by Lucas Vazquez. Nacho was on a yellow and he also has a right thigh problem.

Alba is played in for the Catalans, but he's unable to find a teammate in the middle.
40'
RM want a foul on this near side, but the referee says Messi won the ball.
37'
Nacho is deservedly carded for a foul on Coutinho.
37'
Neither side is dominating this one. Both teams are taking it in turns and I'd say a draw is fair.
36'
Casemiro runs into the box, the ball then breaks to Benzema and his effort is blocked.
35'
Messi looks to find Fati, but he's unable to.
33'
Free-kick to Barca in their own half after Kroos pulls back Messi.
33'

31'
The game seems to have calmed down a bit after that flurry of activity.
29'
Lenglet is booked for a foul on Valverde.
28'
Messi makes a lovely move into the box and Casemiro very nearly concedes a penalty, but it's a superb tackle! Right on the ball.
27'
Very frenetic at the moment and could go either way.
25'
It likes basketball at the moment! The Euroleague meeting between these two sides was last night, lads!
24'
Benzema!!! How did you miss that? Kroos is clean through, he squares for the Frenchman and Benzema hits it straight at Neto!
24'
Neto is quick to start the counter, the ball goes one way and then the other and Messi is denied by Courtois after the Argentine beats Ramos all ends up with a lovely move!

20'
Just seen a replay of the challenge which wasn't given and it was a clear foul by Nacho.
19'

19'
Barca shouting for a foul after Messi goes down following a one-two with Fati, but nothing's given.
16'
Real Madrid also attacking here. It's very open and I think we'll see more goals.

Another good move by Barca just now! They are looking a bit better at the moment.
12'
Coutinho wins a free-kick after a foul by Nacho.
12'
Messi passes to De Jong in a good Barca move, but it comes to nothing. Very open.
10'
An electric start to this match!
8'
Fati levels for the Catalans!!! What a moment for him! What a start to the game! Messi sends a long ball forward to Alba on the far side, he squares for the 17 year-old who fires in from inside the 6. Amazing goal!
7'
Vinicius and Benzema pass the ball to themselves, it's a lovely one-two, but the Brazilian can't find the target.
