PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEP! FULLTIME! REAL MADRID 0 - 3 BARCELONA

Well, well, well. After completely dominating the first half, Real Madrid imploded spectacularly in the second - and aided with a resurgence in confidence within the Barcelona ranks and a silly, uncontestable red card for Carvajal, they simply took the game away from Los Blancos.

14 points ahead now, is it time to declare the league well and truly over?

That's all from me, Anirudh Menon, 'twas a pleasure covering this game, thank you for your company!

Toodle-ooo!
...
Messi screams past Marcelo and tees up Vidal who's shot wriggles under Navas and rolls into to the goal
...
93' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! VIDAAAL!
...
93' They take the corner short... 
...
92' Aleix Vidal is on for Sergi Roberto - and he wins a corner off a superb ball into the area from Messi. 
...
91' Three minutes added on - Andre Gomes smashes a horrendous shot well into row Z. The highlight of the move, Ronaldo coming back to track and usher Messi out of the area 
...
90' It's all scrappy now as Madrid's hurried passing sees another move die a quick death. 
...
89' Kroos takes the freekick, but Ramos has bounded offside once again - and it really looks like Barca have their third consecutive Clasico at the Bernabeu
...
88' Yellow for Sergio Busquets as he leaves his studs on Marcelo's calf with the ball long gone by
...
87' Messi, oh Messi. The little magician, revelling in the space he now has with Kovacic off, wriggles into the box where Madrid are lucky to see him off for a corner. From it, the Argentine has a pop at goal, but it's straight at Navas. 
...
86' Nothing comes of the corner, but Barca don't care and pass-pass-pass they go
...
85' Barcelona move forward with leisurely ease - Messi tees up Andre Gomes (who has just arrived after being subbed on for the brilliant Paulinho) who's shot is deflected out for a corner
...
83' OH RAMOS! A curler from Modric almoooost finds the flailing legs of Ramos but it's a couple of inches too far ahead of him. OH, he was offside... 
...
82' Marcelo and Asensio combine once again down the left and the former wins a corner. They play the ball short and Kroos is played into space in the Barca box - his pass is cleared by Pique (cries for penalty) but it comes back at pace and it takes a tremendous save from from Ter Stegen to stop Ramos from four yards!
...
80' The corner is rubbish
...
79' OH BALE! He goes the Tottenham route and has a pop from twenty-five yards - it's spilled by Ter Stegen, but he gathers before Marcelo can latch onto it. Barca break with surprising directness... and Semedo is played into the box by Messi... where it takes a superb Navas save to keep it at 2-0 
...
78' OH TER STEGEN! OH BALE! The corner is not cleared well by Barca and Modric does immensely well to play  the ball into the box; which is stabbed goalward by Bale - and it's saved superbly by the German goalie
...
77' Asensio runs onto a rebound off Semedo's noggin'  brilliantly but his cross into the box is piss-poor. 
...
76' OH! Kroos nicks ahead of another audacious Ter Stegan scoop but his touch lets him down and his compatriot gathers with relief. Andres Iniesta, meanwhile, is subbed off for the athleticism of Nelson Semedo
...
75' OOOOH! Asensio runs onto Marcelo's lay off and crosses into the box - it hits Roberto's arms (which are behind his back) and the Bernabeu screams for a penalty. The ref is having none of it. 
...
74' Messi picks out Roberto's surge down the right, but his dink into the box is well headed away by Varane. Madrid have the ball for a bit and they need some inspiration from somewhere. 
...
73' FINALLY! BALE AND ASENSIO ON, Casemiro and Kovacic off. Madrid need the Welshman to pull something out of his hat
...
72' Finally Madrid put some pressure on the ball, and Marcelo steals the ball off Rakitic but his ball into Ronaldo is a bit off, and the Portuguese can only hopefully dink it into the box from where Barcelona work their way out with absolute calmness
...
71' This is death by a thousand passes
...
70' OH! MY! Messi messi-s his way past what looked like a perfect Ramos challenge, but his shot is superbly saved by Navas! The Costa Rican is keeping Madrid in it. Sort of.
