Clasico win has revitalised Barca title bid - Luis Enrique

Messi looked unstoppable against Real Madrid, scoring two goals, including the victor which put the Catalans at the top of La Liga.

Real will be without captain Sergio Ramos for the trip after he was sent off against Barcelona and have Nacho as their only recognised senior centre-back, with Pepe and Raphael Varane out injured.

Barcelona is ahead on the head-to-head tiebreaker, but the two-time defending champion only has four games left, while Madrid - seeking its first league title since 2012 - has five to play.

While Ronaldo faltered throughout Sunday's game at the Bernabeu, failing to score goals that could have given his team a commanding lead over their rival in the league standings, Messi came through for Barcelona once again.

His second goal decided the game, a left-footed shot from the top of the area with 12 seconds left in stoppage time after a low pass by Jordi Alba.

While the first video takes you back to 2005 when Messi scored his first goal for Barca, the second video captures Ronaldinho, Sergio Aguero and Andres Iniesta paying a tribute to the best footballer in the world.

But the Portuguese had arguably his best night in a Barca shirt as he drilled home Ivan Rakitic's cross to make it 2-0 on the half hour. And this was his 500th goal.

Despite being reduced to 10 men, Real still managed to level the game at two goals apiece when substitute James Rodriguez turned in a cross from Marcelo with just five minutes to go. Leo always creates superiority in the middle of the pitch and we want him to participate as much as possible.

Basement club Osasuna have won only three games all season and will be relegated if they lose to Barca and Leganes beat Las Palmas, although Luis Enrique warned that his side have fared badly against weaker opposition this campaign.

The Real Madrid player was shown sarcastically applauding afterwards, which Barcelona fans say merits a further ban. "It is an honour and a blessing for the club to have him".

"It is evident that we have to be very consistent for the run-in to the end of the season".
