However, the Portugal forward's ankle was trodden on by Gerard Pique in the process and he was substituted at halftime.

Lionel Messi is the Champions League's second highest scorer with 100 goals while Cristiano Ronaldo tops that particular list with 120 goals to his name.

They played the whole second-half with 10 men after Sergi Roberto's red card for slapping Marcelo with Gareth Bale scoring late on to earn Los Blancos a point.

"We finished without losing after playing a lot with one less [player]".

El Clasicos really don't come more heated than Sunday night's edition of the fixture.

Referee Alejando Hernandez Hernandez showed a total of eight yellow cards as well as the straight red for Roberto.

Towards the end of the match, a "stonewall" penalty for the visitors was also missed, even if Marcelo made a little too much of Jordi Alba's challenge.

We wanted to win and Madrid had a very good game in general. The flick went toward the net and found Ronaldo, who tapped it past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

There was no guard of honour but there was plenty of respect from Zinedine Zidane to one Barcelona player in particular.

Barcelona fans create a mosaic reading 'champions!' in Catalan before the match.

Roberto raced away down the right after being sent clear by Suarez, who timed his run to the back post perfectly to turn the deep cross past Keylor Navas with a low volley.

Sergio Ramos set aside Real Madrid's rivalry with Barcelona to pay tribute to departing Blaugrana great Andres Iniesta after his last Clasico. Zidane's side have three more league games before they meet Liverpool in a repeat of the 1981 European Cup final.

Barca sealed the title when they beat Deportivo La Coruna on April 29, and it is a tradition in Spain for the new champions to be given a guard of honour by their next opponents.
