Real Madrid had a good chance to break Barcelona's unbeaten run in La Liga tonight, but the two Spanish giants settled with the 2-2 draw in a Clasico full of episodes. Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale scored for the Merengues, but the Portuguese star was rested in the 2nd half...

It was a fiery encounter at the Camp Nou this Sunday night, as Real Madrid failed to stop Barça's unbeaten season in La Liga. It finished 2-2, but there was so much more to this encounter as referee Hernandez Hernandez, unfortunately, made himself the star of the match. Zinedine Zidane opted for a vintage lineup today, with the BBC all starting. As of right now, everything is an audition for the final in Kiev, next May 26. Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema (especially after his double against Bayern) are sure to start, but Bale and Isco are likely still battling it out for the final position in the starting lineup...

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Barcelona:

Barcelona, of course, have already sealed the league title, but El Clasico will always be El Clasico and with an opportunity to end Barça's unbeaten league campaign, Madrid came out in full force.

Luis Suarez put Barça ahead early after finishing off a Sergi Roberto cross in the 10th minute. Madrid would recover quickly, however, and it was that man again, Cristiano Ronaldo, providing the final touch. His backheel on the wing found Toni Kroos who immediately crossed it to Karim Benzema. The Frenchman nodded it back into the center where an onrushing Ronaldo was able to get there before Gerard Pique. However, he paid for the goal as he picked up an ankle injury that would eventually see him leave the match at halftime. He surely won't play again before the final in Kiev, as he rests and attempts to recover. With three weeks until that match, he should be fine.

Now tied, tensions began to rise and it came to a boil just before both teams headed into the locker room at the break. Gareth Bale was lucky to escape with not even a booking after stamping Samuel Umtiti in the calf, but Barcelona's Sergi Roberto would be punished for his foul. He hit Marcelo in the face right before halftime and he was promptly sent off. Madrid now up 11-10 had a clear chance to take three points from Barcelona.

In the second half, Barcelona took control again through Lionel Messi. But it was a goal that should have never counted, as Luis Suarez clearly fouled Raphael Varane before sprinting away with the ball and setting up his teammate. Messi was able to put a fine shot past Navas after receiving the pass. 2-1 now...

But Gareth Bale, who has been missing in many recent Clasicos, reminded fans of why he's such a talent scoring an almost similar goal on the other end of the pitch. His goal, however, was a one-time finish that went straight into the top corner.

Just four minutes later, Real Madrid would feel hard done again because of the officials. Marcelo was clipped in the box by Jordi Alba, but there was no call from the ref. Marcelo could only laugh.

It was a volatile and exciting game as any Clasico should be, but the referee's decisions marred the game. Furthermore, with Ronaldo now injured and his ankle reportedly swollen, we now wait impatiently for any news about his recovery time. The final is on May 26, so he has just under three full weeks to get back to full fitness.
