Iniesta will be playing against Real Madrid for the final time

Real Madrid's response came only five minutes later when Cristiano Ronaldo tucked-in a goal to a brilliant header by fellow Karim Benzema.

Madrid were stamping their authority on the contest, Ronaldo heading over and drilling wide either side of being denied at close range by Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

But Barca are four games away from finishing their first league season unbeaten, while Real may be hoping to maintain momentum ahead of their showpiece clash against Liverpool.

However, the Portugal forward hurt his ankle in the process and was substituted at halftime.

Although they were a man light, Barca regained the lead thanks to a sensational Lionel Messi goal - his 26th in this fixture - but Madrid felt Suarez fouled Raphael Varane in the build-up.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane took time off from el Clasico rivalry to greet Andres Iniesta, who will be leaving Barcelona at the end of this season, after the match.

Afterwards neither side was able to score a victor as Barcelona settled for the draw in a game marred by controversies in front of almost 97,000 crowd as they continued their unbeaten campaign.

A wondrous goal from Lionel Messi restored Barca's lead after the Catalans had been reduced to 10 men by Sergi Roberto's red card.

Messi earned himself a yellow for a hard tackle on Ramos before Roberto responded to Marcelo's bump from behind by slapping at his face.

Messi looked poised to get another goal but Bale made it 2-2 by using one touch to curl Asensio's pass around Ter Stegen. We wanted to win and Madrid had a very good game in general.

Zidane, however, insisted Madrid's players will not form an honor guard for Barcelona because Barcelona's players didn't honor Madrid after it won the Club World Cup in December.

"I don't see Ronaldo going back to the Premier League", Garcia told BetStars.

Alaves routed Malaga 3-0, and Getafe beat Las Palmas 1-0.
