  • Barcelona win 4-3! What a game of football, it had everything! The bottom line is that Barca have closed the gap on Madrid and Atletico to just one point with nine games to play. Messi's hat-trick will grab the headlines, as well as Ramos' red card, and the controversial penalties... So much to discuss, stay with us for all reports and reaction. Goodnight!

  • Sanchez has the chance to add a fifth but a last-gasp block denies him. Surely that's it?

  • There will be three extra minutes. Barcelona looking comfortable

  • Morata replaces Modric as we head into added time

  • The Madrid fans are on their feet as Ronaldo breaks forward but Isco's return pass is poor and the move breaks down. Real are running out of time

  • It's all turning very scrappy now and Modric is cautioned for bundling Messi over

  • That man Messi has now scored 26 career hat-tricks. Not bad going!

  • Ronaldo is the latest player to make his way into the referee's book for raising his arm when challenging for a header with Mascherano

  • Isco replaces Di Maria as Madrid look for a late leveller

  • Alonso is booked for dissent in the aftermath of the goal. An unbelievable game of football!

  • 4-3 BARCELONA! Messi completes his hat-trick with a superb penalty kick, curled into the top right-hand corner

  • PENALTY BARCELONA! Iniesta jinks into the box and is sandwiched in between Alonso and Carvajal. The referee has no hesitation pointing to the spot. The third penalty of the night coming up...

  • Another El Clasico stat: Ramos' red was the 13th red card in the last 14 matches between these sides

  • Madrid are sinking deeper and deeper and are struggling to get out of their own half. Can Barcelona nick a winner?

  • Some words of encouragement from Fabregas to his team-mates as he leaves the field and is replaced by Alexis Sanchez

  • Alves is finding acres of room down the right flank now and Pepe has to be on his guard to clear a dangerous low cross

  • Ronaldo is playing up front through the middle on his own and relieves some pressure by winning a soft free-kick off Mascherano

  • Post! Alves cracks the post with a thunderous right-footed drive from the edge of the box. Diego Lopez was completely beaten. So unlucky

  • Busquets powerfully meets Messi's corner but heads well over the top. Barca pressing...

  • A notable change in atmosphere inside the Bernabeu after that Ramos red card. It's the third time the Spaniard has seen red in El Clasicos. You'll have to watch and make your own mind up on how much contact there was but Neymar certainly didn't need much encouragement to go down
