Wow! What a brilliant match! Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo scored within four minutes of each other in the first half before Sergi Roberto was sent off at the stroke of halftime. Lionel Messi gave Barca the lead with his 26th El Clasico goal in the second half but a beautiful curler from Gareth Bale ensured Real left the Camp Nou with a point.

80` Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

Another record falls.

Prevuew: With the La Liga title already in the bag, Barcelona still want to win Sunday's Clasico meeting with Real Madrid and preserve their unbeaten record in the campaign, coach Ernesto Valverde said on Saturday.

"A Clasico is a Clasico and at the end of the day it's an important game in the season," Valverde told a news conference.

"Luckily for us, we're champions already. Obviously, we want to win, irrelevant of the table — and they will too, given the situation and our rivalry.

"They'll come with the idea of ending our unbeaten streak and hopefully it'll be a good game."

Barcelona sealed the La Liga crown with a 4-2 win at Deportivo La Coruna last Sunday, meaning pride is all that is at stake when they face third-placed Real at the Nou Camp.

"I wish all Clasicos had a decaffeinated flavour because of the fact we were already champions," said Valverde. "Maybe observers would be more up for it if the gap was just one point and there was more at play, but I'm happy the way it is."

Valverde played down Real's decision not to give Barcelona a guard of honour as champions, as is traditional in Spain.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane told a news conference earlier on Saturday: "We, with respect, won’t do it for them because they didn't," referring to Barcelona's decision not to give their rivals a guard of honour at the 23 December Clasico after they won the Club World Cup.

"We've spoken a lot about this," Valverde said. "It's something that, for all the talking that's gone on about it, will not have any importance, I'm sure of it. I think it's fine, and that's that. We're not going to give it any importance.

"I don't have any doubt that tomorrow we'll see the best two teams possible on behalf of both Barcelona and Real Madrid," he added.

Sunday will be the final time that Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta faces arch-rivals Real, having confirmed his departure at the end of the season.

"I know that people are talking about it because tomorrow's game is so important but it's not his last game," Valverde said.
