After spending the last few months being widely ridiculed despite advancing into the Champions League Final, this was a good occasion for Madrid to show exactly why they are still more than capable of being the best team in the world and they did just that - especially in the first half.

On the pitch, Messi responded by scoring his 26th El Clasico in the second half, despite his side being down to 10 men following Roberto's sending-off. Roberto dribbled the ball up the right flank to set up Suarez's score. The ball dropped down to Suarez's right foot and he drilled a volley past Madrid keeper Keylor Navas.

After initially taking treatment, Ronaldo played on for 31 minutes here before Zidane made a decision to substitute him at half-time, which may at least offer Real encouragement.

He was bundled over the line along with the ball after beating Gerard Pique to a header back across goal from Karim Benzema. The flick went toward the net and found Ronaldo, who tapped it past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Despite the shock of falling behind to Suarez's early goal, the visitors soon grabbed hold of the game and took command, deserving their equaliser through Ronaldo and looking the more likely scorers before the game turned ugly shortly before the break with the dismissal of Roberto.

Messi received a yellow card in the 45th minute for a poor slide into Sergio Ramos. Marcelo fell down and the referee didn't hesitate in flashing the red card.

On that play, Messi received a pass from Suarez.

Madrid star Gareth Bale hit a magnificent strike, tying the game in the 72nd minute. He played on until halftime before he was replaced by Marco Asensio. The striker stepped up at the top of the box and curved a shot into the upper left corner of the goal.

An intense Clasico left plenty to discuss post-match despite little riding on the result, Barca having already completed a domestic double, while Madrid are looking ahead to a Champions League final against Liverpool.

"A Clasico is never just another match", Ramos said, according to RealMadrid.com. "We will have him ready (to play)". "This is the way to prepare for the final in Kiev".

The joy at Camp Nou was short-lived. A stunning hat-trick earned Frank Rijkaard's Barcelona a 3-3 draw, but couldn't stop Madrid from winning La Liga that season.
