  1. Goodnight

    Thanks for joining me tonight and getting involved in the debate.

    Check out your player ratings for the game here - the chance to rate will end very soon but you can see what everyone else said.

    And read the match report here.

    You can also have a go on our El Clasico combined XI selector here.

  2. Post update

    Barcelona's coaching staff gave their players a guard of honour after the game, following Real Madrid's decision not to give them one beforehand...

  3. Party time for Barcelona

    Barcelona are rightly celebrating tonight. It's their first home game since winning La Liga - and their first home game since winning the Copa del Rey.

    Also their first game at the Nou Camp since Andres Iniesta's summer departure was confirmed - and of course they have held Real Madrid with 10 men to move to within three games of an unbeaten La Liga season.

  4. Not the best refereeing performance

    Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

    The referee's performance is not going down well on the ol' social media. Luis Suarez probably committed a foul in the build-up to Lionel Messi's goal.

    Marcelo should have had a penalty when he was brought down by Jordi Alba.

    Gareth Bale should probably have been sent off before his goal.

    And arguably Ivan Rakitic was onside before Suarez had a goal disallowed.

    So take off Messi and Bale's goals - add on another Suarez one and presume that Real penalty would have been scored and we have, um, 2-2.

  6. 'Highway to Hell?'

    Barcelona celebration

    Quite an amusing sight at the end, with the Barca players told to gather in the centre circle so the club can play some celebratory music and spray confetti to celebrate the title they secured last week.

    The players look absolutely knackered and clearly just want to get back into the dressing room rather than being kept hanging around. Midway through Jordi Alba wanders towards the tunnel only to be sent back out there!

    Now players are getting into the swing of it, singing and dancing on a lap of honour to the unexpected soundtrack of AC/DC’s Highway to Hell. Not the obvious song choice from the PA man.

  7. Post update

    I see from some screengrabs on Twitter, some people's phones are showing the goalscorers multiple times at the top of this page. I can assure you it did end 2-2 and nobody scored more than one goal! Not sure what's happened there.

  8. Post update

    Barcelona now extend their unbeaten La Liga record to 42 games - a run stretching back to last April.

    Their final three games - as they look to become Spain's Invincbles - are Villarreal at home on Wednesday, Levante away next Sunday and then Real Sociedad on the final day.

    Those teams sit sixth, 17th and 11th in the La Liga table respectively.

    The reaction to the final whistle suggests the Barca fans are more than happy with that result. They were just desperate to avoid losing their unbeaten record to anyone other than Real, and claiming a draw despite playing for 45 minutes with 10 men is a decent outcome – and the fair result on the night too.

    That was good, wasn't it?

    Lots of people complaining about the play-acting and petulance, but that's El Clasico for you.

    It's all over and Barcelona are three games away from an unbeaten season.

  12. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

    Sergio Ramos concedes a free-kick from the following corner.

  13. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

    Gareth Bale's shot is blocked, corner. Corner comes in and Nelson Semedo heads out for another.

  14. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

    Oh no. Barca have a chance to win it here as they break forward in numbers - it's about five on five, but Paulinho plays the wrong ball. A glorious chance.

  15. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

    Thirty seconds plus bits and pieces to go.

  16. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

    The centre-backs do come forward. Ivan Rakitic takes his time over this kick, it eventually comes in and Paulinho's shot is blocked. Now someone is offside.

  17. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

    Hoof, Barcelona boot the ball forward and Paulinho wins a corner. Good play. Will they send the big men up?


    Barcelona 2-2 Real Madrid

    Barcelona make their final change. Luis Suarez comes off slowly. Must have been all those injuries he was suffering a few minutes ago...

    Paco Alcacer replaces him.
