93'
FT: RM 2-0 Barcelona!! Real Madrid claim a deserved win thanks to a Pique own goal and Mariano goal in stoppage time! Barca were the more dangerous side in the first period, but RM were much better in the second period, they got good fortune with the first goal and then Mariano killed things off as Barca looked for a leveller. RM worthy winners and they end the night top of La Liga. That's all from us, thanks for your company and hope to see you soon!

HT: RM 0-0 Barcelona!! Half-time at the Bernabeu after no added time! The game started slowly with RM playing more direct, but then Barca were the more dangerous side as the half went along. Griezmann off target and two saves by Courtois to deny Arthur and Messi have been the best chances so far. Kroos has come the closest for RM, but Zidane's side have lacked that killer touch in the final third. Back for more in a bit!

20'
What was Courtois doing there? Griezmann is a fraction away from charging down the clearance!
19'
Carvajal and Alba both see yellow for nothing more than minor shoving. Not even enough to call it handbags. Lahoz runs in like crazy and flashes his card at both of them. Never a yellow.
