Real Madrid reject barcelona gifts and settle for a draw in the Clásico

Exciting summit despite a goalless draw at Camp Nou

The goalless draw between Barcelona and Real Madrid was decided in the La Liga Clásico, which took place between them this evening, in the 10th round of la Liga.

The match was scheduled for October 26th but was postponed due to political events in Catalonia and the outbreak of pro-secession demonstrations.

Coach Ernesto Valverde pushed Marc-Andre Ter Stegen with Barcelona goalkeepers, with Jordi Alba, Clement Longle, Gerard Pique and Nelson Semedo in the defensive line.

In the middle came the Dutchman Frank de Young, along with Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto, in the absence of Sergio Busquets, and attack Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

Zinedine Zidane has relied as usual on Tebo Courtois, defenses Dani Carvajal, Rafael Varane, Sergio Ramos and Ferland Mendy, midfielder Federico Valverde, Casemiro and Toni Kroos, and attacking Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, and Isco.

The first half saw an unexpected advantage for Real Madrid, which almost resulted in a goal for the guests but Pique intervened in time, denying Real Madrid the scoring in the 18th minute.

Barça responded quickly with another dangerous attack from a rebound, but Ramos saved it on Pique's way to keep the situation in a goalless draw.

Barcelona improved dramatically in the second half and launched several organized attacks with the cooperation of Messi and Suarez, but found it very difficult to penetrate real Madrid's organized defense.

In the 58th minute, the ball came to Messi inside the penalty area, but he failed strangely to shoot it into Courtois' net.

Real Madrid came close to scoring again in the fourth quarter, with a rocket from Gareth Bale on the left side, but touched the left side of Ter Stegen's net and came out.

Gareth Bale made up for the shot that went his way towards the goal, another ball that blocked the net from Mindy's cross but was canceled off by the referee after returning to the video referee technique.

The result keeps Barcelona at the top of La Liga with 36 points equal to Real Madrid with the balance, but the royal team comes in second place with goals.
