Barcelona's Luis Suarez and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, right, vie for the ball during a Spanish La Liga soccer match between Barcelona and Real Madrid, dubbed "El Clasico", at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona, Spain, Sunday, May 6, 2018. With this result, Barcelona are likely to end the season as invincibles as they are yet to lose a game in the league.

"We will look tomorrow and see what damage has been done", Zidane told Movistar Partidazo.

The line on his injury from the club as the game played out was that the 33-year-old had "sprained" his ankle, but as reported by Goal, the situation and the severity of his injury is as yet unclear.

Despite his heroics tonight, the Wales worldwide is expected to be on the move come the end of the season.

"They said they weren't in the competition, but that's a lie, because you get into the Club World Cup through the Champions League".

Ronaldo's ankle appeared to be trod on by Barcelona defender Gerard Pique as he scored Madrid's first equaliser in the 15th minute. "We both went out to play well and win".

In the fiery encounter which produced eight yellow cards and a red card that led to the sending off of Sergi Roberto, Messi restored Barcelona's lead despite the numerical disadvantage. Obviously, we want to win, irrelevant of the table - and they will too, given the situation and our rivalry.

Barca host Real as La Liga and Copa del Rey champions but Zidane's side will not perform a "pasillo", the tradition of players applauding their opponents onto the pitch. His first shot was saved by Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, the second fired wide of the far post.

Ronaldo stayed on the bench and, without its star, Madrid couldn't impose its numerical advantage.

That goal took Messi's clasico record to 26 goals. We have many players to come in for those missing, and that is the most important thing. "That's the positive. We're happy because we can still end the league season without losing".
