​It was a momentous night for Lionel Messi and his Barcelona side on Sunday as they beat arch-rivals Real Madrid 3-2 in a fascinating clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Messi was at the heart of it all, scoring twice including a last-gasp winner in stoppage-time.


But he was also found himself on the end of some reckless Real Madrid challenges, with Sergio Ramos being sent off 13 minutes from the end for a two-footed lunge.

The Argentine superstar was also floored in the first-half after receiving an accidental elbow from Real Madrid left-back Marcelo.

Blood was gushing from the mouth of Messi, who was later seen spitting out a tooth in the tunnel.

But it was the Barcelona man who had the last laugh as he thumped in a winner with just seconds left on the clock.

​The result sees Barca leapfrog Madrid at the top of La Liga, but Zidane's side still have a game in hand on their Catalan rivals.

Next up for Los Blancos is a tough trip to Deportivo La Coruna, while Barca welcome the visit of Granada on Wednesday night.
