FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez:

"I think that we had the better of things and we gave our all to win it. We now have to dust ourselves down and keep plugging away. These things happen in football. In the last five minutes they looked strong and they ended up getting the equaliser. We didn't convert the chances we had to have made it 2-0 and these things happen."

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos:

"The team put in a very good, hard-working performance. Had we lost 1-0 it wouldn't have been a fair result and I'm really happy to have got the goal. Our efforts were rewarded and we come away with a point to maintain our advantage at the top. There's still a long way to go and we've got to keep on working hard."

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique:

"We deserved to have won the game. We could have put it to bed, it was there for the taking, but we didn't do that. It's clear for everyone to see that we need to improve, but the outcome wasn't fair on us today."

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane:

"I'm really pleased because we kept believing right until the final whistle. Sergio Ramos is always there to rally the troops, he never throws the towel in and that's great for us. All of my players made major contributions. What really stood out for me was the players' attitude and the hard work they all put in. It's no easy task to get a result here and we displayed all of our character to put a point on the board."


Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic:

"We came close to getting a second but in the end they equalised with practically the only chance they had and that's hard to take. Despite the result, I think we controlled things."

Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes:

"The fact that we're downbeat after that is to be expected, but there's still a lot of football to be played. We'll go on and achieve our aims as long as we keep believing in ourselves."
