Barcelona Vs. Real Madrid, 2012 El Clasico: Visitors Wasting Time

So this game is getting very boring. Two Real Madrid players have had long spells on the ground after rather innocuous-looking fouls as the visitors look to waste some time. You can't really blame them, of course - wasting time is what you do when you're looking at a 1-0 lead at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona, meanwhile, look fairly flustered. They're being marshalled into relatively harmless areas and their passing is nothing like as crisp as usual, giving the ball away far too easily. Unless we get a major improvement in the hosts' movement around the box, I just can't see anyone scoring again.

A little while later, Fabio Coentrao takes a Dani Alves cross to the face and goes down for a bit of a nap. The trainers are on the pitch and a stretcher comes out for the fullback, which ends up being driven around in circles around him. Odd. The corner, by the way, comes to exactly nothing.
