Video and Photos of the Day: Handbags at El Clasico.

Standard

El Clasico, a.k.a. FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid FC, would not be so hyped if it does not have the requisite drama worthy of cheesy soap operas. This time around, the climactic scene went something like this:

Sergio Ramos of Real Madrid tackles Barca’s Lionel Messi badly.
Messi goes down.
Players from both teams swarm the ref.
Carles Puyol, Barca’s Captain,  tries to talk to Ramos.
Sergio pushes Puyol.
Sergio gets a red card, pushes xavi as he leaves the pitch.
Iker Casillas, Real Madrid Captain, tries to calm Gerard Pique down, etc…

Before that, here are some choice catfight moments from the match:

Carvalho "casually" stretching his elbow to catch Messi in the face. Sneaky. But not like it hasn't been done before.

Cristiano Ronaldo getting all "diva-esque" on Barca boss Pep Guardiola for not giving him the ball, pronto. Chill, gurl.

Basically, drama all around.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the match ended with the scoreline Barcelona 5-0 Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho got schooled by Pep Guardiola well and proper, y’all.

However, the best part about post-match El Clasico was Andres Iniesta posting a photo of himself sans shorts in his Facebook page. Beating Real Madrid soundly in home turf sure makes a man do some crazy stuff.

Bottomless fun with Iniesta.

I just know this week’s Crackovia episode will be nothing short of EPIC. Stay tuned, folks.
