  1. Goodbye

    Near misses, a disallowed goal, a red card, a dramatic winner and the end of a long unbeaten run. El Clasico lived up to its billing as the world's greatest club game after a quiet first half.

    Real take the honours against the odds but will Barcelona go on and wrap up the La Liga title? 

    Many thanks for your company. Until next time...

  2. Next up?

    Both Barcelona and Real Madrid turn their attention to the Champions League quarter-finals next week.

    While Barca entertain Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, Real are away in Germany against Wolfsburg on Wednesday.

  3. Player reaction

    Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

    Barcelona defender Gerard Pique: "We didn't know how to play a man up and it was difficult to control the game. We have to keep going. You can't always win and we are in a good position in all three competitions."

    Some more of your dream forward lines.

    RedIsaac: Dream forward line: Cruyff, Maradona, Pele. They would probably want a ball each though.

    Atum Management: Henry - Brazilian Ronaldo - Pele - Hitting you from every angle.

    Diego Maradona
  5. Barca still favourites

    Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

    Barca are still firm favourites to secure the title despite this result.

    Their last seven games are: Real Sociedad (away), Valencia (home), Deportivo La Coruna (away), Sporting Gijon (home), Real Betis (away), Espanyol (home), Granada (away).

    Zinedine Zidane

    Mike Crew: Well that was an unexpected turnaround. Second half much better.

    Michael Smith: Let them have that one, they're not going to win any silverware this season!

    Rizpey: What a result by Real Madrid. It is down to Zidane and the fact that the Real Madrid's players wanted it more.

  7. Six month unbeaten run ends

    Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

    Barcelona's previous defeat was on 3 October. That's six months ago. Even more of an achievement by Real considering they were down to 10 men when they scored the winner.

  8. Post update

    Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

    What does this result do for the La Liga table?

    There will be celebrations all over Madrid, with Atletico now just six points behind the leaders with seven games remaining.

    Real are a further point behind with seven games to go.

    Time for a late twist?

  9. Get Involved - Bale's disallowed goal

    #bbceurofooty

    Gareth Bale

    Thor Jensen: What a terrible call! Bale did nothing wrong! Scandal!

    Mike Crew: Why on earth was that disallowed?

    Wale ibraheem: Look like there is a different set of rules for Spanish league. Absolutely nothing wrong with that goal. Harsh!

  10. 'Renewed confidence for Real'

    Andy West

    Spanish football writer at the Nou Camp

    Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates

    "Well that sets up the rest of the season nicely. La Liga should still be Barca's, but Real will have renewed confidence in their ability to land the Champions League. And if Barca's confidence is rattled, they don't have long to restore it: Atletico Madrid visit in the Champions League on Tuesday."

    Yanis Gbl: Tactics have been spot on from Zidane, he stuck to the plan throughout the game and he got his reward.

  12. FULL-TIME Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

    Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates

    El Clasico never fails to deliver. And this is right up there with the best of them in terms of drama.

    Real Madrid snatch victory after being reduced to 10 men to end Barcelona's 39-match unbeaten run.

    Who would have thought?

  13. CLOSE!

    Neymar with a goal bound shot. It's blocked.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

    Real Madrid are moments away from a famous - and unlikely - win. They're playing down the clock and Gareth Bale performs the slowest walk to the touchline on record as he is replaced by Lucas Vazquez.

    Two minutes of additional time.

  15. Get Involved #bbceurofooty

    Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

    Andrew Priestley: Stunningly clinical finish from Cristiano Ronaldo after the utter stupidity from Sergio Ramos.

    Seth Gogo Egoeh: That's my boy! CR7 has just silenced the critics. Where are those who said he struggles to score in away games?

  16. GOAL - Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo scores

    He's done nothing for the previous 85 minutes but has Cristiano Ronaldo just won El Clasico for 10-man Real Madrid?

    Gareth Bale chips to the far post from the right hand side and it is missed by Dani Alves leaving Ronaldo to chest down and fire home.

    This is pure theatre.

  17. 'Barca get out of jail'

    Barcelona 1-1 Real Madrid

    Andy West

    Spanish football writer at the Nou Camp

    "Well, Barca got out of jail there. Very, very harsh decision on Bale. The first idea any of us had that it was disallowed was when ewe saw the yellow card coming out for dissent."

  18. RED CARD - Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)

    Sergio Ramos

    Sergio Ramos been living on borrowed time and the referee's patience finally snaps as the Real defender lunges at Luis Suarez. He's fortunate to have lasted this long.

  19. Disallowed goal

    Barcelona 1-1 Real Madrid

    Gareth Bale

    Huge drama. Gareth Bale has the ball in the back of the net and wheels away in celebration after meeting Cristiano Ronaldo's cross.

    But Real's celebrations are ended after the referee consults his assistant for a push on Alba.

  20. Post update

    Luis Suarez

    Luis Suarez drills just wide from a tight angle. That was close.
