Nobody has beaten Real Madrid in recent years more than Barcelona, and nobody has scored more against a Ramos-marshalled defence than Messi.
Barcelona won this one but Messi didn’t score, as a 1-0 victory at the Bernabeu took Barcelona 12 points clear of Madrid. Four days ago they’d won 3-0 there to beat their eternal rivals to the Copa Del Rey.
This didn’t quite match the explosive fireworks of the Jose Mourinho-Pep Guardiola era, but tensions simmered as Messi and Ramos squared off shortly before half-time, after the Madrid defender left an elbow on the Argentinian.
