Phew, that was some game. The two sets of players congratulate their rivals. Despite the refereeing decisions, it was a pretty fair result. Barca deserved the draw on account of playing an entire half with 10 men. Madrid created more but if you don't take your chances, you don't win games. We could have seen more than one red but let's not look back at that anymore.

It's still not over for Barca as they still have to see out their last two games. This was the big test and they've come out with a draw, albeit, a bit bruised. The draw will disappoint Zidane and Madrid, but they've got bigger things to worry about in the coming weeks. And of course, this was Andres Iniesta's final game in the Clasico, and boy did he put in a shift! 

Until next time, ladies and gents. This is Amit Mishra, and see you when I see you! 
...
Peeep, peeeeeep, peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! Full time! Barcelona hold on with 10 men! The streak goes on! Another astounding Clasico! 2-2 it finishes!
...
90+4' Barca break. Give the ball away! Madrid break, Bale's shot is deflected for a corner! It's all happening here! Late drama!
...
90+4' Last chance for Madrid. They need to get the ball forward here...
...
90+3' Barca get  a corner as Paulinho manages a darting run on the left before being tackled by Kovacic. This'll do nicely for the hosts. 
...
90+2' Substitution for Barcelona

Suarez is OFF
Alcacer is ON
...
90+1' A woeful pass by Marcelo as he attempts to find Lucas on the other flank. The switch didn't work because the pass was horrendous. 
...
Four minutes have been added on...
...
90' It's still 2-2 here and we have a few minutes to be added on. Alcacer is preparing to come on, possible to replace Suarez who seems like a bruised man, most of it self imposed, to be honest. 
...
88' A bit of last ditch defending from Pique as he acrobatically clears a dangerous cross. Madrid manage to win the second ball but the cross is too close to Ter Stegen. AGAIN. Way too many times that has happened, lads. The crossing has been horrific in the second half. 
...
86' Suarez is down but Madrid continue to play on until Paulinho clears it and halts play. Another little fracas. The away side have no obligation to stop unless it's a head injury. The ref didn't stop it. 
...
85' Kovacic is on for a good reason; the lad can dribble. And against this tired Barca side, that's a big plus. 
...
84' Substitution for Real Madrid

Kovacic is ON
Kroos is OFF
...
84' A good phase of passing from the away side and Marcelo manages to put in a sweet cross. Just about cleared from Pique as Madrid get a corner. This is end to end.
...
83' Another Navas save! Messi with his right foot. Everything for a goal here from the hosts. Pique isn't far off from scoring off the corner, you know. Gets the power from the corner but not the direction. Goalkick. 
...
82' Oh jeez, Messi. Almost a typical Leo goal. Just wide! Barca are taking their game up a notch again. What's a draw against Madrid?! 
...
80' A bit of hit and hope from Madrid. its been the story of the second half. Too many crosses, too little end product. Another Lucas cross is easily collected by the custodian. 
...
79' Way too many fouls now as the game is turning into an ugly scrap. Not what we wanted to see but when there's an unbeaten streak to play for, teams can do anything to keep records intact!
...
78' The ball fizzles out of play as Lucas' pass is overhit. Barca have understandably lost control of the midfield and are playing predominantly on the counter. 
...
77' Yellow card shown to Bale for a foul on Semedo! The ref has sort of lost control of the game. The foul on Marcelo was blatant! Barca have got away with one! Poor refereeing this. 
...
76' Marcelo went down in the box and it seemed like that was a foul. The ref waves play on and Marcelo is absolutely furious! 
...
75' The goal has given Madrid more confidence as they manage a good spell of possession again. Lucas, playing as a makeshift rightback, puts in a cross, but it's hopeful more than anything else and Ter Stegen collects safely. 
...
Again, a goal out of virtually nothing. Bale had a lot to do after a sweet pass from Asensio. His pass was angled inch perfect for Bale who managed to curl it into the far corner. No chance for Ter Stegen! Madrid are level! What a game we have here! 

2-2!
...
OH MY GOAL!!!!
72' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! BALE with a stunner!
...
71' Barca manage a succession of corners but are happy to play it short. Game management now from the hosts. 
...
70' Messi with a chance! Navas with the save! Stunning save from the Costa Rican. Suarez played the perfect through pass for his teammate and he skipped past Varane to test Navas. Not the best shot he could muster and Navas manages to eke out a save. 
...
69' Whatever Barca had in the tank seems to be over as the pressing had died down. They manage to take the lead so they still have something to defend. 
...
68' Substitution for Real Madrid

Nacho is OFF
Lucas is ON
...
67' Half a chance for Madrid but Asensio misskicks and Marcelo isn't able to collect the ball as Semedo reads it perfectly and shields it for a goalkick. 
...
66' Madrid were much more comfortable playing against the 10 men but as the half passes, Barca are bound to tire and Madrid will have to take their chances then. They are seeing a lot more of the ball now...
...
65' Madrid have hardly done anything of note in the second half. The moves have been predictable as they try to stretch the Barca defence but Barca have defended more staunchly when the cross is being put in. 
...
64' Casemiro does what he does best. Ethics don't matter. Winning the ball does, ladies and gents. 
...
63' Into the wall! We don't get to see that to often, do we? Madrid try to break but Barca do well to win it back with the high press. Boy have they been relentless off the ball...
...
62' Freekick to Barca! This is Messi territory. This is his bread and butter stuff. Messi on the ball, lads.
...
61' Madrid are playing a risky game here against 10 men. This was supposed to be their game. Barca have been incredible in the second half. Ramos once again fouls Busquets. A high foot this time. Can't give that a yellow. 
...
60' Ooooooo. Ramos is walking a thin line here as he stops Rakitic unfairly but manages to get away with it. The whole of Camp Nou wanted a card one as well.
...
58' Barca nearly add another! Paulinho nearly scored with his first touch following a brilliant cross from Semedo. Navas came out bravely and took one to the chest. Seems a bit winded. 
...
57' The ovation is immense! Iniesta walks off the pitch after passing the arm band to Messi. Paulinho replaces him. The Don, for one last time in the Clasico. Immense servant of the game.
...
55' Madrid have shot themselves in the foot. The pressing has stopped and the crossing has been atrocious. Another Benzema cross is safely collected by Ter Stegen. Play down the middle, lads. You don't have a Ronnie in the box any more! 
...
54' Barca are breathing down the Madrid neck here. Who's playing with 10 men? I can't really tell. The pressing is immense from the hosts. Bring on the cliche of the stadium playing as the 11th man!
