Real Madrid and Barcelona are duking it out at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in El Clasico. It was a contentious game with each team trading goals in the first half to take a 2-2 tie into the break. In the second half there were three more goals, but they all came from the penalty spot. A controversial call on a Dani Alves tackle on Cristiano Ronaldo gave Madrid the penalty, which Ronaldo converted for the lead.
Then Madrid’s Sergio Ramos got a red card for a challenge on Neymar, which Lionel Messi buried for the lead. Late in the second half, Xabi Alonso got called for a foul on Andres Iniesta that resulted in a penalty kick. Messi stepped up to score again from the spot, giving him a hat trick.
