Real Madrid coach Zidane confident Ronaldo will make Liverpool clash

  • Iniesta will be playing against Real Madrid for the final time

The controversial incidents included Bale escaping without a yellow after a risky challenge on Barca defender Samuel Umtiti; a straight red card for Barca right-back Sergi Roberto just before half-time for striking Marcelo; another Luis Suarez goal for Barca disallowed with an offside call; and a Madrid penalty appeal turned down when Jordi Alba tripped Marcelo.

Ronaldo carried on playing until half-time before being replaced at the start of the second half at the Nou Camp.

Barca led twice through Luis Suarez and then Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou, but Real equalised both times courtesy of goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. "But it was the referee's decision". Atletico Madrid, who lost their unbeaten home record in a 2-0 defeat by Espanyol erlier on Sunday, are second on 75 but have played one game more.

The La Liga champions' lead didn't last for long as Cristiano Ronaldo equalized in the 15th minute with a close range effort following good work from Tony Kroos and Karim Benzema. Maybe not a red as many Barcelona players called for but certainly a booking. Iniesta went off to a standing ovation in the second half.

In the home match 36-th round of the championship of Spain "real" and "Barcelona" played a draw 2:2.

Perkins said he told Raptors player and his former teammate Serge Ibaka at halftime that the Cavaliers were going to beat them. The NBA issued an official warning to Drake about 'the use of bad language, ' according to an article on Thursday by ESPN .

Navas did well to stop Messi wrapping up the points after the Barca star raced clear and that save proved key as Bale struck in the 72nd minute. It says much about the impact of the player that Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane waited patiently for several minutes outside the Barca dressing room in order to embrace Iniesta after the game. If the knock that saw the latter depart at half-time turns out to be serious, the issues becomes moot in the UEFA Champions League final, but if not, it's a tactical decision he has to make.

Valverde added that the prospect of ending the season as undefeated champions was motivating Barca with three games left to play. There was the important save from Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who denied Ronaldo early on.

Suarez felt he had been elbowed by Sergio Ramos, prompting the first round of scuffles, before Messi was booked for flying into the defender on the touchline.

Arguably the four most high-profile players on the pitch all got on the scoresheet, with three of them providing clinical moments in front of goal to score. "That's the positive. We're happy because we can still end the league season without losing".
