And, on that slightly odd note, we're going to wrap things up here.

Thank you for all your contributions and keep them coming in via Twitter and Facebook. Oh and don't forget to keep up with the rest of the Clasico news filtering in through the night on Goal.com.

22:01 BST


Does this qualify as Clasico reaction? Triumphant Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has just revealed via Twitter that he is listening to indie pop stalwarts Belle & Sebastian.

That is certain to rile Barcelona fans who are known to widely prefer Orange Juice in Scottish alt music terms.

21:55 BST


More Clasico reaction and #clasicoratings...

Farai Chando: ‏ "No manager has ever beaten Barca with two teams in one week... #RM #CFC ... #TeamsThatJoseBuilt"

Chinwuba arinze: "With this defeat to real the catalan dominance has been broken and thrown into abyss"

Ali Muhammad Shahid: ‏ "Best: Coentrao , Worst: Alves"

Get your teeth into an updated look at the Cristiano Ronaldo v Lionel Messi debate following that Real Madrid win.

Also, our Spanish football correspondent Ben Hayward has taken a look at just how decisive a blow in the La Liga title race that victory was.

21:44 BST


On the Twitter (it's so much fun over there, honestly) we're talking #clasicoratings, who gave your best and worst performance tonight?

21:38 BST

21:18 BST

Here's your match report for Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid. Feast your eyes!

For the next hour we're going to be looking at Clasico reaction and some more fallout from today's Premier League fixtures.

21:09 BST


Hello there everyone! So what about that then? An incredible victory for Jose Mourinho and Real Madrid. How important is it that the champions-in-waiting beat the holders on the way to potentially securing the La Liga title? Let us know on Twitter!

21:03 BST


And that, folks, is me, Danny Hart, done for the day. I have thoroughly enjoyed your company over the last eight-and-a-half hours. Liverpool’s finest David Lynch will be taking you through all the post-match talk, though, so I’ll catch you all later. Lynchy, over to you...

21:01 BST


Martin Langer reports from Camp Nou: “Complete silence at the stands when the referee blew the final whistle. Then a half-hearted cheer when the team left the pitch. Consensus here is that Real Madrid merited the victory.”

20:58 BST


Kevin Saram on Twitter: “Jose Mourinho proved he is a master tactician, mind gamer and manager.”

20:56 BST


What a night for Real Madrid and Jose Mourinho - a night where records from past Clasicos have been put to bed, the Special One has got one over on his old rival Pep Guardiola and Cristiano Ronaldo has quite possibly fired his way ahead of Lionel Messi in the battle for the Ballon d’Or. Barcelona now sit a staggering SEVEN points off top with four matches left to play and it will take a miracle for them to retain their La Liga title now.

20:54 BST


FULL-TIME: Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

20:52 BST


Final Real Madrid change - on comes Gonzalo Higuain for Karim Benzema. He so nearly makes an immediate impact by combining with Cristiano Ronaldo inside the Barcelona area, but the ball is somehow bundled over the bar. Seconds left...

20:50 BST


ANSAH JOSHUA on Twitter: “So how does this work chelsea give a blueprint for beating Barcelona and real use it to break the jinx on camp nou? Favour returned.”
Yep, that's right. Tonight's result is all down to Chelsea. In fact, Chelsea have won them the title. Yeah, I like it - La Liga champions 2011-12: Chelsea.

20:49 BST


FOUR minutes added on at Camp Nou...
