Team news

Sergio Ramos will play no part for Real Madrid as he remains out with a calf problem.

Dani Carvajal is also out after losing his battle to overcome a thigh issue.

Zinedine Zidane may well pick the same eleven that steamrollered Liverpool but could also opt to bring Federico Valverde back into the starting line-up.

Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati are both out for Barca with knee injuries.

Gerard Pique is also likely to be confined to the bench with a knee problem.

    76. Odriozola nearly catches out Ter Stegen with a looping cross. The Barcelona goalkeeper has to show acrobatic reactions in order to tip the ball behind.

    75. Formations and tactics have gone out of the window.

    As crosses, shots and challenges rain in from all over the pitch, the next goal – and there will surely be a next goal – could be crucial. Not just to the outcome here, but the destination of the La Liga title.

    REAL MADRID 2-1 BARCELONA

    72. Changes galore.

    Barca go for broke by bringing on Ilaix Moriba for Ronald Araujo.

    Meanwhile, Madrid make a triple substitution. On come Isco, Marcelo and Mariano, off go Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior and Toni Kroos. Zinedine Zidane may well have one eye on that second leg with Liverpool on Wednesday.

    70. Messi curls the set-piece straight into Kroos in the Madrid wall.

    Unlike the German's free-kick earlier, his intervention doesn't help the ball to goal but rather does the intended job of clearing the danger.

    REAL MADRID 2-1 BARCELONA

    69. This is end-to-end stuff now, and a fourth goal is surely imminent.

    On the break, Messi is off target with a curler, but he's caught late by Nacho and play is pulled back for a free-kick.

    A yellow card is shown to the Real Madrid defender.

    67. A thumping challenge on Messi by Odriozola! Absolutely bone-crushing!

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-1 BARCELONA

    66. A great opportunity for Madrid to restore their two-goal advantage.

    A gorgeous pass from Modric puts Vinicius Junior in the clear, but rather than going for goal, the Brazilian attempts an unselfish pass to Benzema.

    There's not enough on the ball, however, and Araujo gets in to intercept.

    65. A Barcelona change now with Sergi Roberto on for Sergio Busquets.

    REAL MADRID 2-1 BARCELONA

    63. This one is turning into something of an epic.

    Barca nearly find their equaliser with Alba involved once more. The left-back gets in behind the Madrid defence but finds himself blocked by Courtois.

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-1 BARCELONA

    61. Madrid respond by making a change that sees Marco Asensio replacing Federico Valverde, and nearly add an immediate third.

    Vincius Junior's cross from the left is deflected goalwards by Araujo, and clips the outside of the post with Ter Stegen beaten.

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-1 BARCELONA

    60. Game on! Barcelona are back in it through young Oscar Mingueza!

    The defender reacts with an inventive finish after Antoine Griezmann has brilliantly dummied Jordi Alba's cross from the left.

  • Sam Dymond

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLL!!
    OSCAR MINGUEZA PULLS ONE BACK!!

    REAL MADRID 2-0 BARCELONA

    56. The referee plays a good advantage as Casemiro is taken out by a sliding challenge made to look worse by the conditions. The subsequent cross in from the right is inches away from Benzema.

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-0 BARCELONA

    55. Griezmann pokes wide from eight yards out. It's a poor finish from the substitute, whose blushes are spared slightly by a late offside call.

    54. The rain is so wild that you actually wonder if it's going to have an impact on whether this match makes it to a finish.

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-0 BARCELONA

    52. Madrid showcase their abilities on the break once again by opening Barcelona defence up in a matter of seconds.

    Kroos goes for goal with an audacious effort after exchanging passes with fellow scorer Benzema, but he's well off target.

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-0 BARCELONA

    50. With Griezmann's arrival, Dembele has moved out to the right from where he has already put in two dangerous crosses.

    The second has Messi sniffing around but Courtois is confident in coming out to claim.

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-0 BARCELONA

    48. The rain is coming down really hard, and you wonder if it's affecting balance and obscuring vision. That's certainly the case as Busquets collides with the referee and sends him skidding across the turf.

    Seconds earlier, Messi had a shot blocked inside the area.

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-0 BARCELONA

    46. Barcelona have made a change during the half-time break with Antoine Griezmann on for right wing-back Sergino Dest.

    Will it bring a greater attacking threat from the visitors? Or will it allow more space at the back for Madrid to exploit?

  • Sam Dymond

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE ACTION RESTARTS!

    HALF-TIME STATS

    Barcelona have registered more than double the amount of possession and passes of their rivals in the first, but haven't been able to live with Real's counter-attacks.

    Madrid are in charge of the Clasico at half-time, leading thanks to Karim Benzema's spectacular back-heel and Toni Kroos' deflected free-kick. Barcelona have seen plenty of the ball, but have been unable to cope with the pace and skill of Real's counter-attacks.

  • Sam Dymond

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THAT'S HALF-TIME IN EL CLASICO!

  • Sam Dymond

    REAL MADRID 2-0 BARCELONA

    45+2. Another Barca corner, another Messi effort.

    This time the forward is on the receiving end of Dembele's cross from the left, but finds his chest down and shot blocked by Courtois.

    That could prove to be a crucial stop from the Real Madrid goalkeeper.
