EL CLASSICO ENDS IN A DRAW

Malcom’s spectacular equaliser earned Barcelona a draw against rivals Real Madrid in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final at the Nou Camp.

Real went ahead through Lucas Vazquez in the sixth minute following a brilliant assist from Karim Benzema.

Holders Barcelona, who started without Lionel Messi, had stuttered in attack despite the efforts of a bright Malcom.

And the Brazilian deserved his goal to line up a mouth-watering second leg at the Bernabeu on 27 February.

Barcelona, who are aiming for their fifth Copa del Rey in a row, lacked fluidity going forward – and the inspirational Messi who was left on the bench after an injury scare.

And with Gareth Bale also left on the bench for Real it was two Brazilian youngsters – 18-year-old Real forward Vinicius Junior and Malcom, 21, who took centre stage.
