Real's Ramos: Red card was 'excessive'

Barcelona's Lionel Messi right celebrates with his teammate Andre Gomes after scoring the winning goal during a Spanish La Liga soccer match between Real Madrid and Barcelona dubbed'el clasico, at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid Spain Sunda

Zinedine Zidane lamented his Real Madrid side's recent struggles to take their opportunities in front of goal after a 3-2 El Clasico defeat to Barcelona.

Messi netted twice, including the victor at injury time, which was also his 500th goal for Barca, who are now level at the top with Real on 75 points.

"I'm so excited, my whole family is here and we are just thrilled to be here, " Roberts said afterwards although she made no comment on which one of Ronaldo or Messi was her favorite.

Alcacer became the third player to net a double with four minutes remaining to cap an emphatic scoreline to further increase confidence on the back of the El Clasico win at the Bernabeu. "I've got nothing to be angry with my players about", Zidane added.

Real Madrid have stripped over 350 fans of their season tickets after a conspicuous number of Barcelona supporters were spotted watching El Clasico from sections of the Bernabeu supposedly reserved for home fans.

Barca came from behind twice to pull off this away victory, which push them to the top of the Spanish league.

Barcelona struggled on the night but Messi led them through the game and was the decisive figure on a dramatic occasion that leaves the Spanish title race wide open.

The competition was typically controversial, Cristiano Ronaldo having a strong very early penalty insurance claim denied, while Barca desired Casemiro's opener chalked off as they claimed for offside versus Ramos in the build-up, a goal that was quickly cancelled out by Messi before half-time.

"He's the best of all time, and I've seen many football videos". Messi, meanwhile, needed only 577 appearances to reach the 500-goal mark.

Messi's second goal at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday was a last-minute victor that gave him 500 career goals with Barcelona, and he was honored for the milestone before the Osasuna game, with a huge banner displayed on the stands with the words "Thank you Leo".

Barca are also on the lookout for another striker to help ease the pressure on Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Ramos's red card not only allowed Barcelona to take all three points but so sees him miss Wednesday's La Liga tie with Deportivo La Coruna due to suspension.
