Having clawed their way back from that early deficit, Barcelona are much improved, and they're doing what they do best: Diving*. Alexis Sanchez, who's just scored a brilliant goal, takes some of the gloss off it by doing his utmost to turn a minor trip by Pepe into some sort of major war wound, flopping about pathetically on the ground for an embarrassing length of time. For some reason, Lionel Messi picks up a booking while all of this is going on.
*This is a joke so don't get all pissy.
Anyway, despite the theatrics it is an actual Barcelona free kick, and it's a good one - Iker Casillas is stuck in no man's land and is forced to punch awkwardly clear. It's not exactly convincing goalkeeping from the Real Madrid man, but there are no Barca shirts around to cause problems, so the hosts escape.
