Ronaldinho "very happy" for Lionel Messi

After rattling one home in the 92nd minute, Messi removed his shirt and held his name and number aloft for the Real fans behind the goal to read slowly and surely.

Victory takes Barca top of the table thanks to their better head-to-head record with both sides locked on 75 points, but Madrid have a game in hand.

"Monday we will have a look and see what injury he has and I hope he will not be out long".

His Los Blancos side are also in the Champions League semi-finals where they will face Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid in the first leg next week. "In modern football when everyone is tactically and physically better he still makes the difference".

"Just imagine, his 500th goal coming here, a victor in the 92nd minute at the Santiago Bernabeu".

After Lionel Messi's dramatic late victor in the visitors' 3-2 win, fans in Blaugrana jerseys could clearly be seen dotted among the Madridistas.

Messi's strike partner Luis Suarez was also lavish in his praise for the Argentine.

The Spain centre-half felt that the dismissal - his fifth in Clasico history - was "excessive", while Madrid director Emilio Butragueno felt that the decision was debatable.

Of course, the resulting photo proved to be rich source material for the photoshoppers of the world, and here we've compiled some of the best efforts.

"He keeps showing that in the most important games, which is when you really see him".

Barca captain Andres Iniesta added: "The great thing about Leo is that he never stops surprising you". "After so many years he is still decisive".
