Real's Bale denies 10-man Barca win in feisty Clasico

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was diagnosed with a slightly sprained ankle after he was substituted in the 2-2 draw against Barcelona on Sunday evening at the Camp Nou.

The midfielder was dismissed following an off-the-ball altercation with Marcelo on the stroke of half-time, but the hosts survived a late assault to take a point.

While addressing the press post the game he said, "As we are a family, and they didn't want to give us a guard of honor, I've asked our staff to make one".

Warriors slam Pelicans with dominant 2nd quarter 123-101
The defending champions are dominating again, and now Stephen Curry is ready to rejoin the mix and make them that much better. The Pelicans are more equipped for an up-tempo game than to slow the ball down and operate in a plodding half-court setting.

Andres Iniesta said Barcelona avoiding defeat despite Sergi Roberto's first-half red card means he leaves Clasico meetings against Real Madrid with a "good taste".

Barcelona is aiming to become the first team to go an entire season without a loss in the Spanish league under its current format. Even when injury free however, Bale has struggled to command a regular place in the starting XI, playing second fiddle to rising sensation Marco Asensio for much of the campaign.

The Labour Party's business spokeswoman, Rebecca Long-Bailey, has already called for an investigation of the proposed deal. It is seeking clarity on the future of Asda's stores in Scotland and its distribution centres in Falkirk and Grangemouth.

'We always respect Barcelona but in that play I thought kicking the ball out was not necessary'. Lionel Messi still remains the one with the most goals scored in clasico fixtures.

Barcelona would have emerged from the game as the happier of the two sides, especially given the circumstances, but Zinedine Zidane still gave a classy interview after the game where he claimed that Barcelona would finish the season unbeaten. With most of the players visibly exhausted and struggling to recover on defense, both sides had chances to get the win.

And Zidane denied putting a time frame on Ronaldo's injury absence, despite the Champions League final against Liverpool being just three weeks away.
