69’ GOAL!!! Real Madrid 1-2 Barcelona (Fermín): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! The visitors are ahead again as Lamine Yamal puts a cross into the box, Lunin cannot claim it and Fermín López scores on the rebound! Real Madrid vs Barcelona, La Liga, Real Madrid, Barcelona, El Clasico

69’ GOAL!!! Real Madrid 1-2 Barcelona (Fermín): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! The visitors are ahead again as Lamine Yamal puts a cross into the box, Lunin cannot claim it and Fermín López scores on the rebound!

SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Real Madrid 1-1 Barcelona: Back underway in Madrid!

HALFTIME, Real Madrid 1-1 Barcelona: A game lacking in both quality and intensity is all square at the break thanks to a set piece goal for Barça and a penalty for Madrid. It’s certainly not a memorable Clásico so far, and here’s hoping for better entertainment in the second half.

45+7’ SUBSTITUTION: After a rough 50-50 challenge with Federico Valverde, Frenkie de Jong goes down with what appears to be yet another ankle injury for the Dutchman, who leaves on a stretcher in obvious pain and disappointment as he’s replaced by Pedri.

30’ NO GOAL: Raphinha’s low corner kick is deflected at the near post by Lamine Yamal and Andriy Lunin saves it right on the line, and there was a lengthy VAR check to see if the ball crossed the line. There was no clear video evidence that the ball went in, however, so Barça are denied a second.

18’ GOAL, Real Madrid 1-1 Barcelona (Vinicius pen): Vinicius steps to the spot and beats Marc-André ter Stegen to equalize.

17’ PENALTY TO REAL MADRID: Lucas Vázquez receives the ball on the right wing, dribbles past João Cancelo with ease and goes down after hitting Pau Cubarsí’s outstretched leg, and the referee points to the spot without hesitation.

6’ GOAL!!! Real Madrid 0-1 Barcelona (Christensen): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! Raphinha sends a corner into the box and Andreas Christensen rises highest at the far post to head it home!

KICKOFF! Real Madrid 0-0 Barcelona: And we’re underway in Madrid!

WELCOME TO THE SANTIAGO BERNABÉU!!! The newly-renovated iconic home of Real Madrid in the Spanish capital is the site of the final El Clásico of the season between the hosts and Barcelona, who come into this one looking to save their campaign and keep their remote title hopes alive. But it won’t be easy against a Madrid side in high spirits after an epic European qualification in midweek, and that can pretty much guarantee the La Liga crown with a win against their biggest rivals. This should be all kinds of fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.

Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
