Barcelona led it 1-0.

Real Madrid came right back. Watch this corner kick find its way to Cristiano Ronaldo, he flicked the ball into the net and leveled the scoreline at the 20 minute mark. Then, Barcelona delivered the next punch. A corner went to Messi,and he worked with Gerard Pique to close in on the goal. Messi finished off the play and Barca held the lead at halftime.
