Real Madrid vs. Barcelona: Halftime Thoughts on Tonight's El Clasico

The battle rages over in Madrid!

Real Madrid and Barcelona are at halftime, and the score stands at 1-all.

So far the match has been as fast, furious and hurried an affair as you'd expect from El Clasico, especially when the stakes are so high for both sides.

Mourinho's Madrid, who currently hold an advantage over the league table have been clever tactically, committed and restrained. They only need a draw tonight after all, but they've hardly parked the bus and chucked the keys out of the window.

Pep and Barca on the other hand need the win, and seemed almost stressed throughout the early part of the half. Slowly though they've come back into the match and were perhaps turning the tide around the 40-minute mark.

Here are six points thrown up by the first half of tonight's game.
