Fabian Niederprum backed up his fellow Blanco with: 'Can someone tell me why Altintop was in the starting line up? He was a midfielder and never played at Bayern, now he starts in the Clasico?'
Meanwhile, Robby Susanto was focused on the behaviour of one Portuguese defender-cum-midfielder, adding: 'Players like Pepe should banned for life! Take the Madrid shirt from him and he's no different than a street criminal!'

This match-up is poised for another 30 minutes of non-stop action if it keeps up like this...
