Barcelona and Real Madrid saw out a tense draw at Camp Nou tonight as El Clasico ended goalless.

Barca and Real are still level on 36 points at the top of LaLiga, with neither side able to find the win which would have offered a big advantage in the title race before the winter break.

The match was always bound to be a tense affair given thousands of pro-independence Catalan protestors descending on the stadium before the game, and so it proved as the likes of Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema were unable to make the breakthrough.

Gareth Bale thought he had opened the scoring midway through the second half, but the goal was correctly ruled out for offside.
