Sergio Ramos’s stoppage-time equaliser maintained Real Madrid‘s six-point lead at the top of La Liga as the European champions salvaged a 1-1 draw at Barcelona in Saturday’s El Clasico.
Luis Suarez looked to have breathed new life into the title race when he headed home the opener from Neymar’s free-kick eight minutes into the second half.
Neymar and Lionel Messi then passed up huge chances to add to Barca’s advantage, and the hosts were made to pay when Ramos met Luka Modric’s free-kick with a powerful header to stretch Madrid’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 33 games.
Diego Costa starred as Premier League leaders Chelsea roared back to win 3-1 in an ill-tempered game at Manchester City, who had Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho dismissed.
Gary Cahill’s own goal gave City the lead, but Costa equalised and teed up substitute Willian before Eden Hazard struck to send Antonio Conte’s men four points clear of City at the summit.
