Real Madrid vs. Barcelona: La Liga Live Score, Highlights, Recap (10 Am ET)
Sergio Ramos's late header added more misery to Barcelona, as Real Madrid won another installment of El Clasico 2-1 at the Bernabeu.
Both managers made changes from the midweek Copa clash, but it was Mourinho's much changed side that took an early lead.
Youngster Alvaro Morato produced a fantastic cross which Karim Benzema took no exception to prodding home.
Barca were soon level though, Lionel Messi scoring for in his 15th consecutive La Liga match and equalling the 18 Clasico goals scored by Alfredo Di Stefano.
The match went up a few gears around the hour mark though, following the introduction of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Despite coming close, it wasn't the Portuguese forward that stole the headlines but Sergio Ramos.
The defender thundering home a header as the match ended amid controversy as Barcelona were denied what they felt was a clear cut penalty.

Thanks for joining us for live updates from the Bernabeu. Stay tuned to Bleacher Report for plenty more reaction throughout the day.
Wow. What a second half, no doubt inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo's introduction.
Sergio Ramos's header won it for Los Blancos, but you'll have to make your own mind up whether Adriano deserved a penalty at the end.
The nature of the Barca players demonstrations may suggest yes.
Barcelona are furious, it looks like Victor Valdes has been sent off for something he said to the referee. It was a Clasico which had its quiet spells but it exploded in the second half.
ALL OVER! Except the demonstrations are continuing.
90 - Big shout for a Barcelona penalty. Ramos pokes a leg out, Adriano goes over it and La Blaugrana players are furious that the spot kick is not given. It looked more than plausible.
90 - Into added time. Ronaldo has just forced another save from Valdes from another free kick.
Then Barca break, Los Blancos are short of numbers and Alvaro Arbeloa breaks up the move, picking up a yellow card for the team.
88 - WOW! Ronaldo a whisker a way from making it three! He get's it over the wall, Valdes is beaten but the woodwork isn't. Barca breathe a sigh of relief.
87 - Free kick in a fantastic position for Real Madrid...
85 - Barcelona's reaction to the goal? Cristian Tello replaces Thiago Alcantara.
83 - Sergio Ramos towers above everyone at the near post to head home and give Real Madrid the lead. It was probably most likely that Los Blancos, if they were going to score, would benefit from a set piece.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL DE MADRID!
80 - Into the last ten minutes at the Bernabeu. Is either team prepared to break the mould - so far anyway - and push on for all three points?
77 - Adriano replaces Pedro. What Barca would give for one of his world class strikes - as against Valencia and Atletico - in the last 15 minutes!
76 - VALDES SAVES BARCA! Brilliant run in behind Dani Alves from Morata, Pepe's through ball found the youngster, his first touch was good but Valdes stood tall and kept Barcelona in it.
74 - Another chapter in Ronaldo vs. Valdes. Albeit the flag was up, but Valdes had palmed away another stinging shot from the Portuguese forward.
72 - Another dangerous ball from Dani Alves - he's produced a few today - is dealt with well by the Madrid defense.
Spectacular game from Morata— Phil Kitromilides (@PhilKitro) March 2, 2013
69 - Ronaldo drives forward. Pique does just enough to keep him wide and from a difficult angle Ronaldo drills into the side netting.
68 - Morata fouls Messi and picks up a yellow card. That's the sixth caution of the game, all coming in the second half.
Meanwhile, Alvaro Arbeloa replaces Fabio Coentrao. Real Madrid out of changes now.
67 - Change for the visitors now. Alexis Sanchez replaces David Villa.
65 - SAVE FROM VALDES. From the resulting free kick Cristiano Ronaldo hits a trademark dipper and mover, but Valdes saves for a corner. The game's certainly come to life since the substitutions.
64 - ANOTHER yellow card. This one for Thiago. The Barca midfielder's poor touch allows Pepe to rob him, and he follows it up with a cynical little foul.
62 - Few tackles flying about now. The latest is Fabio Coentrao on Dani Alves, with the Brazilian going down with an almighty scream. Yellow for the Portuguese left-back.
