After Barcelona managed to get a 1-0 lead off a good free-kick and a poor defensive job by Sergio Ramos, Cristiano Ronaldo became the hero and equalised for Los Blancos.
Real Madrid are playing under a 4-4-2 formation without the ball that is providing good results. Barcelona are not comfortable with the possession. Isco and Marcelo are playing well, but Modric is the best Real Madrid player of the first half, no question. The Croatian set up Benzema and allowed the French to deliver his tricks and assist Ronaldo. So far, this is a hard-fought game that cannot be predicted. Ancelotti's men are playing with ntensity and both Isco and Bale are contributing defensively. If Real Madrid's condition stays there, there is no reason why Cristiano Ronaldo and Co can't get at least a good draw here.
The bad thing for Real Madrid is that Pepe already got booked after a bad tackle on Suárez.
