Everyone take a breath, relax, maybe even take a nap. El Clasico is over and now we can all reflect on an exceptionally exciting and evenly-matched game.

We saw Ronaldo become the first player in history to score in six straight Clasicos while Lionel Messi came within one of being the rivalry's top scorer.

The two best players in football led their teams to a draw in a match that saw Barcelona line up with three full-backs in defense and Real Madrid look uncharacteristically suspect in attack and at the back.

We saw a few players shine in ways that could inspire their play for the rest of the season, while others have us wondering how much longer we have to wait for consistently great play.

The final score was 2-2 at Camp Nou and that may seem the fairest result, but is it really?

Read on to see the major talking points and key events from the latest Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid.
