87 min: ALL THAT NONSENSE WAS WORTH SITTING THROUGH!!! Real Madrid 0-2 Barcelona. What a goal this is. Messi picks up the ball at speed in the middle of the Real half. He slaloms down the centre of the field, evading challenges by five separate white shirts, before entering the box. He's drifting to the right of goal, but no matter: he draws Casillas and dinks deliciously past the advancing keeper on the left and sends the ball bouncing into the bottom-left corner. That was pure genius, absolutely majestic, a goal for the ages. That it's come at the end of this shambles of a game is something of a saver for football's reputation.
