Injury update on Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Champions League final

Barcelona emerged from a thrilling Clasico the more satisfied on Sunday as the 10-man Catalans edged closer to a first unbeaten La Liga season following a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid.

When a team is crowned champions early, it's tradition for their opponent the following week to give the winners a pasillo (literally translated as hallway). His performance on the night was patchy but the goal might be the sign that if he gives it his all, he has a future at Real.

Gerard Pique said he asked Barcelona's staff to provide a guard of honour after bitter rivals Real Madrid refused.

Barcelona led twice through Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi only for Real, who have one eye on the Champions League final against Liverpool later this month, to level through Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

- Zinedine Zidane (W2 D2) equalled Miguel Munoz (W4 between 1962 and 1965) as the Real Madrid coach with the longest unbeaten run against Barcelona away from home in all competitions.

Los Blancos will defend their decision by pointing out Barcelona didn't do the same after Real won the Club World Cup, but there's no such tradition.

Should Hamburg reach the relegation playoff, they'll face the third-place team in the Bundesliga. He received treatment on the ankle, then played on until half-time, when he was replaced by Marco Asensio.

This meeting of La Liga's two most glamorous clubs will have minimal affect on the table, given Barca are unassailable and Real, now concentrating on the Champions League final, are safe inside the top four.

Juventus are primed to win their seventh consecutive scudetto after a comeback win over Bologna. This was Bale's 15th goal in 24 games this year, an impressive record, but perhaps Zidane was left still wanting more.

Our daily blog will ensure you have all the latest updates throughout the week but we want you to get involved, too. It would be a fitting end to the season if his improving form saw him star against Liverpool later this month.
