Real 1 Barca 1 - Not a bad result considering Real were missing; Casillas, Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo and di Maria + Arbeloa was playing LB not his usually RB position! :D

Barca could have finished this if they hit the target...

Real Madrid could have too.

Both Ronaldo and messi were kept pretty quiet in this one. Other than maybe Ronaldo's runs up the side but still no real threat. Cesc was just in the right spot, lucky really. Varane was man of the match! Dude is beast! I better see some IF Varane on FUT! And hopefully ,as of late, blind Mourinho plays him at CB with Pepe. Ramos goes back to the right and Marcelo on the left. We'll be solid! Can't wait for the 2nd leg!

And he's so young, and he's already showing so much promise, kid's awesome.

Barca blew it, yes it is a decent result but a crappy one considering the players Real Madrid had out. Somewhere Barca is just not being as efficient as they should be, they're not driving Madrid nuts like they use to, and that Barca that just has the ball regardless of how much Real Madrid pushes up front is just not showing up. Hopefully we get a good result at camp nou, it's gonna be difficult to contain them.

this game looked pretty even. both teams left their goal scoring boots in the dressing room.

i suppose Madrid wouldn't mind the score line by looking at the squad they had. Barca wouldn't mind it either since the next one is at home for them.

Great match, both sides played extremely well! Can't wait for the next match between the two.

Varane man of the match.. he is so elegant and talented for his age. Carvalho on the other hand should retire.

Barca are a bunch of cry babies. Alves and Busquets are the worst simulators i've ever seen.

Christ what a boring match, whenever it had a chance to pick up the ref would just stop the play. Once again sergio and pedro were being little whimps the whole match.

Still good result considering how many players were missing, at the very least it shows we should be alright should the likes of CR7 leave. He was pretty much non existent this match.

yeah Ozil played superbly in this game ( Man of the match in offense ) but still Varane did have a better game overall .
btw that doesnt make CR7 non-existent or useless because he is still our main man in the team he was a great leader playing both offensive football and defensive so i would say a good match for ronaldo but not up to his standards of course

I'm well aware of what ronaldo means to the team. However, I think in the coming year or 2 it'll be time to start looking for a new striker as I don't see him staying with RM for too long. Also, other than missing shots on goal he was pretty much a non factor in the match.

Ozil played well unlike Modric and Higuain. Both teams had a chance to take the win, but no one took it. Hopefully, they won't make the same mistake come the end of feb.

Lol at the RM fans in here..

Everywhere in the world are saying Barsa forgive RM and RM players and fans are in denial and think that the game was very even and they could beat Barsa LOL ..

you must be relatively new around here, mostly because there aren't that many RM fans on this board. No one here is in denial, well at least not me. Mou will most likely leave at the end of the season.

Barca fans are all happy that he will leave considering how he managed to close the gap between the two teams drastically. Ohh and I'll enjoy beating you at home. Considering how we've scored 2 goals last 7 times we've gone to the camp nou.

If anything barca fans should be the happiest. They dominated the match against a Real Madrid squad that was missing 6 players.
akaakaaka  +   440d ago
So like 2 wins and 10 loss games is murinho record against Barcelona with real M. and a 5-0 and he had manage to lose the gap? Lol
15 point away from barsa in la liga, RM sucking in champions every year. I will want and love mou to stay! Lol I don't want him gone.. imagine simeone been reals couch? Now that will be a challenge for barsa.

And yes you are in denial, every news pager have it clearly barsa forgiving real at that game except the few(marca, as) and the fans.

I can't wait for the next game in camp nou!

Good game, sad I missed it. Was hearing it on the radio. Both teams had chances to make more goals.

Funny how yesterday Alves fell and hit the ball with his hand, it went unnoticed and today 2 penalties were given to atletico madrid because a sevilla players did the same thing. Things like this ruin an otherwise beautiful game.

I noticed someone saying something about marca/as not mentioning the results as clearly as "the rest of the world", that's normal, those papers are more interested in the drama that goes on in the dressing rooms.

One thing is clear from that game (and quite a surprise), Madrid have a solid beast of a central defender for years to come.
