El Clasico updates as Messi scores after Ronaldo equaliser

El Clasico updates as Messi scores after Ronaldo equaliser

"The game had a little bit of everything, I imagine it was very tough to referee".

That looked like a debatable decision, as did Bale escaping without any punishment for putting his studs into the back of Samuel Umtiti's leg.

Real Madrid were surprised by this goal and took time to get back to their form. "However, the decision comes down to the referee", he said. "There is clear contact". "Maximum respect to Barcelona, but at that moment, he had not been touched at all".

The lead did not even last five minutes, though, Ronaldo inevitably central as he made it 12 goals in his last 12 visits to Camp Nou.

Barca thought they had extended their lead through Suarez, only for the goal to be disallowed for a marginal offside in the build-up, and Iniesta, seemingly set for a switch to the Chinese Super League, was then withdrawn to a standing ovation. The visitors, though, couldn't make their numerical advantage count as they struggled to break down Barcelona, who didn't press as high and waited longer to try to win the ball.

Valverde added that the prospect of ending the season as undefeated champions was motivating Barca with three games left to play.

They will face Real Sociedad, Villarreal and Levante for the remainder of their games this season.

"Our quest continues to finish the league without a loss", said Andres Iniesta, who played his 38th and final game against Madrid before he leaves the club after 16 seasons this summer.

Mets to designate former All-Star Matt Harvey for assignment
Scott Boras, Harvey's agent , said in a text message that the bullpen was tough for Harvey to work on all of his pitches. Harvey is 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA this season, leaving him with a 34-37 record and 3.66 ERA in six major league seasons.

The SEC Subpoenas Jay-Z Over Rocawear Sale to Iconix

Google's Waymo Self-Driving Minivan Crashed Into A Sedan In Arizona
It's unclear at this stage what caused the silver Honda to swerve across the road into the path of the Waymo minivan. As the Honda swerved, it entered the westbound lanes of Chandler Boulevard and ended up hitting the Waymo minivan .

Ronaldo collided with Gerard Pique as he bundled the ball into the net from close range and went off the pitch to get treatment after seemingly suffering an injury.

The 1-0 win over Liverpool sent Chelsea within three points of Juergen Klopp's side, which has neglected its domestic responsibilities while qualifying for a first Champions League final in 11 years.

Zinedine Zidane says Barcelona do not deserve a guard of honour before the Clasico on Sunday because they refused to give Real Madrid one for winning the Club World Cup.

After the match, Zidane told the media: "He doesn't feel good now, but I don't think it is anything serious".

With Barcelona already Spanish league champion and Madrid focused on its Champions League final later this month, it was supposed to be the most low-key "clasico" in years.

The contest had as much focus on the players as it did on the referee with Hernandez dishing out eight yellow cards, including booking Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and Barcelona striker Luis Suarez.

"What we all hope is that he recovers as soon as possible". Replacing him is going to be impossible. With most of the players visibly exhausted and struggling to recover on defense, both sides had chances to get the win. His first shot was saved by Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, the second fired wide of the far post.
