Wow, incredibly close to an opener there from Barcelona. Cristiano Ronaldo had headed over from a good Xabi Alonso free kick, but the action is all at the other end where Barcelona ghost through the Real Madrid defence and cause the hosts major problems. Xavi feeds David Villa, and he bursts into the penalty area and draws a phenomenal save from Iker Casillas. The shot is hit with such venom that Casillas can't do anything more than parry it directly onto Pedro's head, but he has no time to direct his header and the ball bounces inches wide of the far post.
To add injury to insult, Marcelo sneakily stamps on the prone Pedro, twisting his knee around and apparently causing him some discomfort. He's almost immediately pulled by Pep Guardiola in Barcelona's first substitution, replaced by Ibrahim Afellay. We've got twenty minutes left and it's still 0-0, but things are all going the visitors' way right now.
