BARCELONA: Sergio Ramos’s stoppage-time equaliser maintained Real Madrid’s six-point lead at the top of La Liga as the European champions salvaged a 1-1 draw in Saturday’s El Clasico.

Luis Suarez looked to have breathed new life into the title race when he headed home the opener from Neymar’s free-kick eight minutes into the second half.

Neymar and Lionel Messi passed up huge chances to add to Barca’s lead, and those missed chances came back to haunt Barca when Ramos met Luka Modric’s free-kick with a powerful header to stretch Madrid’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 33 games.
