Share

Lionel Messi has become the leading goalscorer in El Clasico in La Liga after scoring a sensational equaliser against Real Madrid.

Casemiro had put the hosts ahead in the 28th and Messi equalised five minutes later after evading two defenders inside the area for his first goal at the Bernabeu since 2014.

Suarez let Rakitic's pass run into Messi's path and the Argentinian swerved past Dani Carvajal to finish unerringly past Keylor Navas for his 499th Barcelona goal.

Messi had broken a three-year goalless drought against Madrid to cancel out Casemiro's opener for Madrid in the first half. Casemiro and James Rodriguez were on target for Real, who had captain Sergio Ramos sent-off for a foul on Messi 13 minutes from time.

Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen also came up with big stops, including a header by Benzema and a shot by Marco Asensio.

Ronaldo had a few good chances but was not able to capitalise on them. However, just as it looked that Real had done enough to get a point, up stepped Messi with a stoppage time victor.

But Messi had the last word, finishing off a slick move by converting Jordi Alba's cutback with a trademark left-footed finish and celebrating by holding his shirt up to a dismayed Bernabeu.
