Gareth Bale had a goal disallowed in the second half as el clásico ended goalless for the first time in 17 years despite a confident performance from Real Madrid.
Barcelona stay top of the table on goal difference. The match wasn’t a stinker, but nor was it one of the great 0-0s. Real Madrid were much better in the first hour, though Barcelona were more dangerous after bringing on Arturo Vidal and rejigging their midfield.
Sergio Ramos speaks
“When you don’t win a game you feel disappointed. I felt Real Madrid deserved more. It’s a very complicated game – it’s difficult to come here, but we took the game to them and caused them problems. We didn’t make the kind of mistakes that have cost us so much in previous clasicos. We controlled the game quite well, especially the transitions. It’s not easy to do that in the Camp Nou.
“We had a strategy to put pressure on them high up and make it difficult to play the ball out from the back, and we did that. I think we’re having a really positive spell. We should have had two penalties [for fouls from corners], but that’s football. We’re leaving here with a smile on our faces.”
