Barcelona player ratings: Blaugrana maintain unbeaten streak with El Clasico draw

Barcelona player ratings: Blaugrana maintain unbeaten streak with El Clasico draw

"We have to look for incentives and that is important".

Ronaldo picked up an ankle injury and was withdrawn at half-time during Sunday's El Clasico encounter with Barcelona.

He claims that what Ramos said is completely false and that the Argentine barely had any contact with the referee in the tunnel.

Zinedine Zidane says Barcelona do not deserve a guard of honour before the Clasico on Sunday because they refused to give Real Madrid one for winning the Club World Cup. And that is not to mention the many grievances against the referee, from both sides, that could have swung the result. Real now face an anxious wait to discover the extent of the damage, with tests due to be carried out on Monday.

Looking to pull from outside off stump, he failed to get on top of the bounce and skied a top-edge to deep square leg. MI can not afford to lose even one of their next four matches if they are to stand a chance of retaining the title.

Nevertheless, the match had plunged into turmoil with referee Alejandro Hernandez handing out three yellow cards and a straight red during the final minutes of the first half.

Ronaldo added a goal of his own and gave Madrid's fans a scare when he couldn't play on through a leg injury and needed to be substituted at halftime. Iniesta went off to a standing ovation in the second half.

Barca host Real as La Liga and Copa del Rey champions, but Zidane's side will not perform a "pasillo", the tradition of players applauding their opponents on to the pitch.

Sergi Roberto had been sent off at the end of the first period after Luis Suarez opened the scoring in a pulsating, and highly controversial, Clasico. This was Barca, not always at their mesmerising best, but gutsy and, in the league at least, unbeatable.

Johnny Manziel Was Hospitalized After a Bad Reaction to Bipolar Medication
TMZ Sports earlier reported that Manziel was hospitalized briefly and released following an adverse reaction to medication. Sources close to Manziel told TMZ he was admitted to a hospital in Humble, Texas.

Conversely, Benzema and Ronaldo were both excellent, regularly showing fluid movement and risky intent to repeatedly put Barca under pressure, but whether Bale's goal was enough to convince Zidane that he should receive a more prominent role from now on is dubious.

Zidane also confirmed that Isco and Dani Carvajal will have recovered in time for the final on May 26.

Those displays against PSG and Juve again underlined Ronaldo's importance to Madrid on the biggest occasions, especially with the forward now usually playing much closer to goal and focusing on converting chances created by his teammates rather than setting them up himself.

Somehow, he'd manage to miss the worst tackle of the entire game moments before, when Gareth Bale had launched himself at Samuel Umtiti, leaving his studs embedded in the Frenchman's calf.
