Barcelona captain Iniesta savours 'good taste' of last Clasico

Iniesta will be playing against Real Madrid for the final time

Real Madrid did not give bitter rivals FC Barcelona a guard of honour despite the Catalan giants having already been confirmed as league champions, but the Blaugrana found a surprise solution for their own guard of honour.

After Luis Suarez had put the hosts in front at Camp Nou just 10 minutes in, Ronaldo levelled matters just four minutes later.

The Madrid manager says the Liga "is the most hard and the nicest to win".

"I don't know if in the second half [he] would have done things differently [without that pressure]".

Madrid play the Champions League final against Liverpool on May 26, but Zidane said he did not think Ronaldo was in danger of missing the showpiece in Kiev.

However, Gareth Bale had the final say and his 72nd minute equaliser means that Los Blancos maintain their momentum as they gear up for the Champions league final against Liverpool in less than three weeks.




And they avoided defeat in last night's El Clasico showdown with Real Madrid at the Nou Camp, despite seeing Sergi Roberto sent off in first-half stoppage time.

Ronaldo's goal was his 25th in the league this season but was not enough to help his side who are now third in La Liga with three games remaining. "We will have him ready (to play)".

And the bad blood did not stop there in a match in which the referee Alejandro Hernandez Hernandez dished out one red card to Sergi Roberto, eight yellow cards, including bookings for Ramos and Suarez.

It was mainly Madrid until the final whistle, but Barcelona held on with few problems to continue their unbeaten run and cement their domestic dominance.

Barca seemed happy overall to survive playing the entire second half with 10 men, and they did very well under the circumstances. The first 45 minutes showed that both teams wanted the win and were ready to go full throttle to get the same. "There are two games left and, in the end, Barcelona will finish the season unbeaten".
