Clasico win has revitalised Barca title bid - Luis Enrique

Fabio Capello accused Real Madrid's players of consistently trying to deliberately injure Lionel Messi as he watched replays of what he called a "criminal" challenge by Sergio Ramos on the Barcelona ace during Sunday's Clasico.

Elsewhere, Sevilla host Europa League semi-finalists Celta on Thursday as they aim to consolidate a place in the top four, while King's Cup finalists Alaves host Eibar in a Basque Country derby.

Ramos was given a straight red card for an ill-timed tackle on Lionel Messi and faces a one-match ban.

And Lionel Messi's double was not only decisive on the night but also confirmed he is now top dog individually ahead of Madrid marvel Cristiano Ronaldo.

Messi netted from inside the area after a cross by Jordi Alba two minutes into stoppage time of the "clasico", leaving the rivals level on points.

"He's the best of all time, and I've seen many football videos". Storylines run deep in this rivalry: these two teams have twice as many Spanish league titles (56) as every other team combined; they are two of the wealthiest, successful clubs in the world with unquestionably the two best players on the planet; and, on top of all that, has a cultural significance whose roots can be traced back to the Spanish Civil War.

Messi struck his 500th Barcelona goal with nearly the last kick of the game at the Bernabeu on Sunday.

"Leo, my brother, I am sending you a message to congratulate you on your 500 goals". Leo always creates superiority in the middle of the pitch and we want him to participate as much as possible.

"So many things have happened, both good and not so good, things I've already forgotten", coach Luis Enrique said.

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta also couldn't stop praising the Argentine. "It is an honour and a blessing for the club to have him". "Three vital points are at stake and we'll need to perform to our best". "We made a lot (of chances) during the whole game". He now has 23 goals in games between the two clubs, five more than Madrid great Alfredo Di Stefano and eight more than Cristiano Ronaldo.
