It was the Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo show as Barcelona and Real Madrid fought out a 2-2 draw in the Clasico match in Spanish football.

Defending champions Real came away with a point but failed to secure the victory they needed to trim the gap on leaders Barcelona, who remain eight points ahead.

Messi and Ronaldo each struck twice in a showdown of two of the best players in the world.
