    • Real Madrid
    • 90+4' The full-time whistle goes at the Nou Camp, and Barcelona have thrashed Real Madrid 5-0 in a quite exhilarating display to usurp their rivals at the top of the La Liga table! What a stunning performance from Pep Guardiola's side! Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+3' A huge scuffle sees tempers flare, and Sergio Ramos is shown a second yellow card amid all the chaos!
    • 90+2' A horrible challenge from Carvalho sees Messi chopped down in the Real half, and a melee ensues - oh dear, this is getting very ugly!
    • 90+1' GOAL!!!!! JEFFREN MAKES IT FIVE! Barcelona are rampant as Bojan finds Jeffren with a pinpoint delivery from out on the right, and the substitute wraps it up!
    • 90' Three minutes will be added at the end of this second half, with Real Madrid reeling.
    • 89' Real stroke the ball around at the back, and barely risk coming forward now as they look to hold on.
    • 88' Di Maria, who has been virtually anonymous all evening, loses the ball out on the right, then Ronaldo delights the home fans in showing a shoddy touch.
    • 87' Xavi is replaced by Keita, while Pedro also makes way as Jeffren Suarez gets a run out.
    • 86' Pedro has a touch of cramp and receives treatment briefly, but he gets gingerly to his feet.
    • 85' Pepe and Casillas manage to escape at the back under pressure from Bojan, and the defender has been one of the few decent performers for Real.
    • 84' Alonso and Khedira exchange passes on halfway, but Real do not even look like getting on the scoresheet.
    • 83' Abidal hurtles down the left at pace, but he does not manage to get a cross into the box.
    • 82' Iniesta and Pedro combine down the right, but the through ball to Bojan goes astray.
    • 81' Xavi continues to dictate the play with staggering ease, and Bojan is looking a livewire.
    • 80' Barcelona are content to stroke the ball around in their half now as Real sit back and defend.
    • 79' Casillas looks utterly despondent as he bides his time over a goal kick, and Real are beleaguered.
    • 78' Real counter through Benzema, but the Frenchman has been dire all evening and misplaces another simple pass.
    • 77' Casillas makes a fine reflex save to deny Bojan, and the Spain keeper is giving his all.
    • 76' Bojan races clear on goal from a Xavi through ball, but he stumbles and loses his footing - that would have been five with Villa still on the field!
    • 75' David Villa receives a deserved standing ovation from the capacity crowd, and Bojan gets to join the party!
    • 74' Khedira receives the 10th yellow card of the evening with a cynical barge on Iniesta, and this is getting pretty ridiculous!
    • 73' Messi maraudes down the right, only to be dispossessed by Diarra at the back with a perfectly timed challenge.
    • 72' Mourinho is getting all sorts of abuse from the home fans now as the chants go up once more, and this is a terrible night for the Portugese.
    • 71' No! The referee almost seems to take sympathy on the defender as he shows Carvalho the yellow card - that is extreme leniency!
    • 70' Carvalho handles the ball as it comes over from Pedro, and surely that is denying a goalscoring opportunity - red card?
    • 69' Xavi and Iniesta combine with exquisite touches on halfway, and the roars just get louder and louder!
    • 68' Ronaldo misplaces another pass, and the Portugese is looking extremely agitated and upset now.
    • 67' Real Madrid are simply chasing shadows at the moment, and there is no doubt that the visitors are being humbled here.
    • 66' This is quite incredible football from Barcelona, who are keeping the ball with breathtaking ease.
    • 65' Busquets attempts an audacious lob from 30 yards, and it dips narrowly over the bar - good attempt!
    • 64' "Ole, Ole, Ole!" The roars ring out around the Nou Camp as Barca keep possession comfortably.
    • 63' Messi is forced to wait over the set piece as Arbeloa is told to remove some jewellery - the defender has to leave his wedding ring on the touchline!
    • 62' Arbeloa fouls Messi, and it is no easier for the sub as he looks to shore up the Real defence.
    • 61' Messi is causing havoc once more in the Real half, and the Argentine wins a free kick 30 yards out...
    • 60' The ineffectual Marcelo is replaced by Arbeloa, and Mourinho realises it is now damage limitation.
    • 59' Puyol makes a sturdy challenge in the Barcelona half to bring down Alonso, and that is fine defending.
    • 58' GOAL!!!!! IT'S FOUR, AND IT'S VILLA AGAIN! The same combination make it four as Messi makes a mockery of a static Real Madrid defence and finds Villa, who slides another clinical strike beyond Casillas!
    • 57' There is no stopping Barcelona, as the hosts stroke the ball around with consummate ease.
    • 56' This is getting very embarrassing for Real Madrid, as the hosts continue to pile forward in their droves.
    • 55' GOAL!!!!! VILLA MAKES IT THREE! It's quite simply sublime, and Barcelona are cruising at the Nou Camp! Messi slides an incisive through ball beyond Pepe, and Villa beats the offside trap before slamming an emphatic finish beyond Casillas!
    • 54' It is all Barcelona as the hosts pile on the pressure and force Real Madrid back under the cosh.
    • 53' Khedira attempts a ridiculous shot from miles out on the right, and that is pretty poor from the midfielder.
    • 52' What a chance for Barca! Xavi gets in down the right with Casillas saving his initial effort, and he can only turn the rebound into the side netting!
    • 51' That was the sixth yellow card of this feisty encounter, and there is still everything to play for.
    • 50' Diarra clatters into Pedro, before Alonso brings down Busquets and is given a booking immediately.
    • 49' The jeers ring out once more as Benzema misplaces an appalling pass in the direction of Ronaldo, and that is very shoddy!
    • 48' Brilliant defending from Real! A combination of Casillas and Carvalho manage to block Villa's shot with the goal otherwise gaping at the striker's mercy from close range, and it's desperate defending from the visitors!
    • 47' Barcelona hit their stride with a sweeping move which Pepe has to end abruptly with a strong challenge.
    • 46' The second half is underway, and Ronaldo immediately makes a sturdy challenge on Pedro to show the visitors' intent.
    • 46' Mourinho has taken action at half-time, and the move everyone expected prior to kick off sees Lassana Diarra replace Mesut Ozil.
    • 45+2' The half-time whistle goes at the Nou Camp, and Barcelona lead Real Madrid 2-0 in El Clasico, courtesy of goals from Xavi and Pedro inside the opening 18 minutes! What, if anything, can Mourinho do to turn the game in his side's direction? We're set for an enthralling second half.
    • 45+1' Messi is booked for diving, which replays suggest is very harsh as Carvalho clearly made contact with the Argentine's face with his elbow. Dubious.
    • 45' Two minutes will be added at the end of this first half as Ronaldo unleashes a low drive from range which does not remotely trouble Valdes.
    • 44' Villa drops deep and clips a through ball over the top of Carvalho's head intended for Pedro, but Casillas is swiftly off his line to punt upfield.
    • 43' Pepe makes an outstanding challenge to deny Messi in the Real Madrid box, and that had to be perfect, and was!
    • 42' One thing Barcelona rarely get enough praise for is their ability to press the ball in their opponents' half, and the hosts do so superbly once more.
    • 41' Ozil and Benzema combine once more down the left, but Barca are defending obdurately at the back to afford their opponents not a glimmer of an opportunity.
    • 40' Messi, who has scored in each of his last nine games for Barcelona, fires over the bar with a wild effort from range.
    • 39' Barcelona reassume possession in the Real half, but Marcelo defends well to thwart Messi on this occasion.
    • 38' Ozil wastes the corner sloppily, before Ronaldo takes a tumble in the Barca box from a challenge by Valdes, diving at his feet - no penalty, that's for sure.
    • 37' Puyol concedes a corner kick as Benzema and Ozil combine down the left, and Real are desperately pushing for a response before half time.
    • 36' Pepe is now booked for hauling down Messi in the Real half, and only with the Argentine in possession could that have been considered a goalscoring opportunity!
    • 35' It's a mighty fine effort from Ronaldo, which has Valdes scrambling desperately across his line, but the ball runs narrowly wide of the far post.
    • 34' David Villa is now booked for a mistimed, rather cynical, challenge on Khedira in the Barca half. What can Ronaldo do from all of 30 yards?
    • 33' Finally, that laughable episode simmers down a touch, and we are back underway with Real Madrid enjoying a rare period of possession.
    • 32' It was all but a petty push on Guardiola's chest by Ronaldo, who is now booked, but it causes a lengthy aftermath. Ridiculously, Valdes gets involved after running the length of the field to offer his views, and he is also booked! Absurd.
    • 31' Ronaldo remonstrates once more with the referee, and this is getting very heated as the Portugese's petulance kicks into fifth gear!
    • 30' Xavi and Iniesta engage in a mesmerising exchange of passes, before a through ball towards Villa runs out of play.
    • 29' Real are being boxed into their half as wave upon wave of pressure comes on their goal from the hosts - it's one-way traffic.
    • 28' Ronaldo has barely had a touch thus far this evening, and the Portugese is cutting an incredibly frustrated figure already!
    • 27' Good save Casillas! Pedro roars through on goal after being slipped through by Xavi, but this time Casillas makes a fine reflex block with his legs to deny the forward making it three!
    • 26' Messi is typically at the forefront of everything for Barca, and Real look very despondent already. Mourinho must be desperate to get among his players at the break.
    • 25' Villa is causing Ramos all manner of problems out on the left for Barcelona, and the right back is thwarted yet again, only for Pepe to cover.
    • 24' Another inquest is conducted among the Real defenders as they are sliced open once more, and Barca have a corner.
    • 23' It's sublime football from Barcelona, who continue to stroke the ball around with consummate ease and hold their opponents firmly under the cosh.
    • 22' Ronaldo takes a tumble out on the left, but seconds later is throwing his arms up in frustration after not winning a free kick he feels he was due! No.
    • 21' Poor. Benzema gets down the left at pace to beat Pique, but he attempts a frankly absurd shot from a tight angle which runs straight out for a goal kick.
    • 20' Real have to dig very deep and commit bodies forward, but Barcelona could not look more dangerous in possession.
    • 19' Mourinho is not looking at all enamoured with his side's start to this match, and who can blame him? Villa is ruled fractionally offside as Busquets slides a through ball into his path.
    • 18' GOAL!!!!! PEDRO MAKES IT TWO! Barcelona are looking imperious now as a 25-pass move sees Villa get to the byline past Ramos, before cutting the ball back to Pedro to tap home from a yard out!
    • 17' Pique attempts to slide an incisive through ball in beyond Pepe towards Villa, but again Carvalho's positioning is faultless and he can clear.
    • 16' The visitors enjoy a good spell of possession, with incessant whistling greeting each and every pass. Barca defend stoutly, and can now clear through Puyol.
    • 15' Real are looking to break at pace, and Ronaldo causes havoc with a fizzing delivery into the Barca box which Abidal turns away for a corner in very unconvincing fashion.
    • 14' Messi is playing very centrally at the moment, and he links the play fluidly once more, only for a move to peter out through Iniesta down the right.
    • 13' What does Mourinho do now? There will be no 'park the bus' tactics from the visitors, who now have the onus on them to respond to that early setback.
    • 12' Messi is apparently tripped by Khedira, but the referee waves play on, then at the other end Di Maria fires a fierce strike towards the top corner which Valdes has to tip over the bar for a corner!
    • 11' What a breathless, exhilarating start to this game, and both managers are now out on the touchline barking orders at their players.
    • 10' GOAL!!!!! XAVI SCORES FOR BARCELONA! It's slightly fortuitous as Messi combines with Iniesta out on the left, and the midfielder's shot deflects off Marcelo into the reach of Xavi, who pokes the ball beyond Casillas!
    • 9' Marcelo makes an impeccable challenge on the edge of the Real box to deny Iniesta, and Barca continue to dictate the open play.
    • 8' Barcelona stroke the ball around patiently at the back, before Ronaldo finds Di Maria on the break, but the Argentine's touch lets him down and a goal kick is awarded.
    • 7' What an attempt from Messi! The Argentine looks to pick out the top corner of the net with an audacious chip from out on the right, and not even Casillas saw that coming as it rattles against the post! Genius.
    • 6' Messi hurtles down the right at pace and looks to cut inside, but Carvalho is on hand to concede a corner in efficient fashion.
    • 5' Valdes holds his shoulder after colliding with Pique in his own six-yard box in smothering the ball, but he looks to be okay despite moving rather gingerly.
    • 4' Valdes shows good anticipation in charging off his line to claim a delivery from Ronaldo, whipped in from the right at pace.
    • 3' Every touch from a Real Madrid player is roundly whistled, and the visitors have a free kick following an inadvertent handball from Pedro.
    • 2' Iniesta enjoys a good few touches of the ball outwide on the left, before Pepe intercepts an attempted through ball to Villa superbly.
    • 1' We're off and running, and immediately Ronaldo is fouled out on the right flank by Busquets. It's a breathless opening.
    • 19:55 A vociferous atmosphere is being created at the Nou Camp as the 98,000 Barca fans are handed placards to form a mural in the Catalunya colours, and we are about to get underway. What happens when you have 13 World Cup winners on a field together? We are about to find out!
    • 19:50 Real currently assume top spot in the La Liga table, having accrued 32 points from 12 games, while Barcelona are one point behind with a goal difference just two shy of their rivals.

    • 19:45 The big news is that Higuain is confined to the substitutes' bench for Real, and that is a big call from Mourinho, who is currently strutting provocatively around on the touchline, soaking up the fervent atmosphere at the Nou Camp.

    • 19:25 Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has no intention of curbing his side's attacking instincts against Primera Division pacesetters Real Madrid in El Clasico - an encounter he believes could be a "fantastic" game.
