They proceed to boo him like the good old days **8’** Suarez offside count: 1. It wasn’t offside at all by the way **9’** the commentator just called our national team “Thierry Henry’s Belgian Boys” which I find extremely embarrassing **10’** Ronaldo awfully miss kicks the ball in a dangerous area. The home crowd proceeds to boo **12’** Ronaldo makes a foul in the box and gets the whistle. The home crowd proceeds to boo **14’** Busquets has an early contender for worst touch of the game. **15’** Messi’s name is somehow spoken for the first time. **17’** Messi getting more involved now. Paulinho can’t lay back a ball to Suarez after some good passing. **18’** (#icon-yellow) Vermaelen kicks Modric and gets a yellow. **20’** Paulinho’s passing accuracy is shown to be 50% so far, as if that’s supposed to mean a lot. **21’** Commentator just listed Lionel Messi after both Iniesta and Paulinho when discussing Barcelona’s creative players. In the meantime, Ronaldo ballhogs in the box and loses possession. Could have done more with that. **23’** Messi does a nice ball juggle but nothing comes of it. **25’** The tempo of the game is actually quite low as Madrid don’t feel like exposing Barcelona’s high line much. With Bale this game would be very different I reckon. **30’** Messi gets a great pass to Paulinho in the box whose one touch attempt is saved. Pique gets a penalty shout on the following corner but it isn’t given. **31’** Both teams lacking some tempo and initiative at the moment, not enough urgency in midfield. **32’** Vintage Ronaldo coming down the wing, doing a step over and attempting a tight shot. Ter Stegen saves. **34’** Benzema is apparently playing in this game. **35’** Benzema nearly scores on a counter right after I said that. **36’** Suarez finds no passing options and thus stumbles over himself on a counter. **38’** Marcelo and my stream die at the same time. I hope both are okay. **40’** On my 240p Turkish stream, Benzema messes up a counter with god awful ball control. Apparently Benzema hit the post around this time somewhere but I missed it. **42’** Benzema nearly scores a header after an amazing cross by Marcelo. **43’** Half time can’t come soon enough for Barcelona who are now being very much overrun. **45’** Barcelona finally keep the ball on Madrid’s half. Marcelo loses patience and fouls Messi. **45+1’** Messi’s freekick is straight into the wall. The ref blows the half time whistle. **HALF TIME** **46’** We’re back! Anyone got a decent low capacity stream? My laptop is proper shit at the moment **47’** Ronaldo cuts inside and misses his shot. The ref misses an obvious deflection. The crowd proceeds to boo **50’** Navas chests and clears a dangerous backpass by Kroos. **53’** Suarez shoots at Navas in the box. **54’** (#icon-ball) [GOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!!!!!! LUIS SUAREZ](https://imgtc.com/w/OcuxalD) slots it home after good quick countering by Rakitic and Roberto. **56’** Casemiro and Suarez have a scrap, both players end up looking like bellends. **57’** Suarez is now suddenly everywhere. He slips while attempting a cheeky near post finish. **60’** (#icon-yellow) Ramos slaps Suarez in the face and gets booked. **62’** The ball drops to Paulinho whose long shot doesn’t bother Navas much. **63’** (#icon-red) Insanity! Messi sets up Suarez twice who hits the post at an empty goal after which Carvajal commits a hand ball! Ref gives a red card and a penalty even though the ball crossed the line. Madness. **64’** [GOOOAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! LIONEL MESSI](https://imgtc.com/w/wmMyi5r) scores the penalty. Is this the end of the title race? **66’** (#icon-sub) Nacho replaces Benzema **69’** Paulinho on a 1 on 1 but he takes his touch too far wide. **70’** Messi is through on Navas on a tight angle, the Costa Rican does well grab his shot. Barcelona have smelled blood. **72’** (#icon-sub) Bale and Asensio replace Kovacic and Casemiro **74’** According to the commentator, Sergi Roberto blocks a cross with his arse. It was actually his elbow. **77’** (#icon-sub) Semedo replaces Iniesta. **78’** Bale gets a shot right in front of goal but he hits it straight at Ter Stegen! **79’** Bale attempts from afar, Ter Stegen almost lets the rebound roll to Marcelo but intervenes in time. **83’** Ramos gets a close range attempt on Ter Stegen who blocks it with is body **83’** (#icon-yellow) Marcelo gets booked. Meanwhile Ronaldo’s attempt goes wide, offside Ramos cannot slide it in. **84’** (#icon-sub) Gomes replaces Paulinho. **87’** Messi gets a surprising amount of time to shoot in the box but doesn’t finish well. **88’** (#icon-yellow) Busquets gets booked. Messi is the lone warrior in the wall in a free kick that ensues. **90+1’** Messi finds Gomes in the box who skies it over. **90+2’** (#icon-sub) Vidal replaces Roberto. **90+3’** [GOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL!!!!!!!! ALEIX VIDAL](https://imgtc.com/w/oEEysoU) slots it home after Messi brilliantly dribbles past Marcelo and lays it back!!!
