Spot on, this pretty much sums up the game.

Well it certainly didn't disappoint, did it? Both teams showed why they're the two best teams in football right now.

Here's something interesting though. If Atletico win their match that just started, they go top!

Not often Real have to look up at Atletico...

Better Atletico than Barcelona, eh?

Fair result, great game. I'm only surprised that no one got sent off. Well done referee, showed some sense and kept the game flowing.

were u watching the samee game i was? in the first half he was stopping play for a sneeze!!

I thought Pepe or Ramos would get sent off again as they usually do.

I mean with cards. I hate when players get sent off in these big matches, tends to ruin the spectacle. Hard tackles are to be expected in derby games and I don't like refs who pull people up too quickly in these matches. I agree with the commenter below though, Alonso was lucky to have stayed on the pitch!

well, Xabi Alonso gave the referee two clear chances to show him the 2nd yellow. It was kind of a miracle he wasnt sent off

Great game. Now Real finally plays with more style against Barca. This makes for a more enjoyable game for each others supporters and neutrals alike.

No Pique, no Puyol, no Dani Alves, no defense, so a pretty good draw for Barca. Beautiful goal by Messi, and Montoya almost became the hero of the night with that last shot, too bad it hit the crossbar. Overall, I think Barca didn't play up to their standards, and honestly Madrid looked much better than them in the first half.

I have no idea why Fabregas was subbed by Sanchez though.

Fair summary ;)
I am happy with the draw. We could've lost at the end. (Montoya and Pedro chances)
GanjaMan  +   877d ago
u got lucky, benzema should of put that chance away where he hit the bar and the messi goal was just wank defending by madrid but good game, ]]well played.
Nes_Daze  +   877d ago
As realiks said, Barca had their chances too, I think both teams got lucky, and both strikers, Ronaldo and Messi, showed today why they're the best football players in the world, no question. Oh and Ozil was a constant threat, he assisted Ronaldo's second goal.

The big rivalry is in two weeks after the break. Juventus v Napoli
PaPa-Slam  +   877d ago
Cannot wait for that game as well.

The whole game was Ronaldo & Messi show, it almost felt like Messi vs. Ronaldo rather than Real Madrid Vs. Barcelona.
