Ex-Real Madrid coach Capello: Ramos challenge was criminal

Ramos Pique

Ramos Pique

"Messi's our best player". As reported by Sport, "Madrid have taken action against season ticket holders who clearly sold their tickets for the game".

There's been no one better than Messi when the two Spanish powerhouses meet.

"Messi's goal? As a Madrid fan you obviously feel hurt, mostly because of the time".

Ivan Rakitić's superb strike from distance put Barca in front, only for James Rodríguez to score the equalising goal with five minutes left, shortly after Sergio Ramos was shown a straight red for a wild lunge on Messi.

Outgoing Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has reiterated his desire for Lionel Messi to end his career at the club.

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta also couldn't stop praising the Argentine.

The result moved Barcelona ahead of Zinedine Zidane's side in the title race though Madrid have played a game less than the Catalans heading into the final stretch.

"After so many years, he continues to be the difference".

"We will see what injury he has exactly, do tests tomorrow, and I hope it is not too bad for him". And for the club, it's a blessing.

Both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are out of European competition, but we think Bayern will come out on top.

Messi's late victor allowed Barcelona to tie Madrid on 75 points at the top of the Spanish league standings with five rounds to go.

Madrid's home loss to Barca at the Santiago Bernabeu saw them leapfrogged at the top by their arch-rivals, who now lead the way courtesy of a superior head-to-head record.

"I always look on the bright side, said Enrique".

"Messi made the difference for his team, but it is not only Messi. He is a very special player".

They wondered if Lionel Messi, goalless in two games against Juventus and his previous six Clasico matches, had lost his magic.

It was the fifth time Ramos had seen red in the Clasico, with three of his last five dismissals against any opposition coming against Madrid's great rivals in what is turning into something of a habit.

Real Madrid have the golden opportunity to take a leap towards that La Liga title.
