Gareth Bale and other Real Madrid players were confronted by angry fans after the 2-1 defeat against Barcelona last night.
The Welsh winger, Jese and Sergio Ramos were amongst the players whose cars were attacked by riled supporters who had waited in Valdebebas, where Real Madrid's training ground is located, as they returned from the Nou Camp to drive home.
After witnessing the unfolding events, club captain Sergio Ramos stopped to reason with the fans, who were punching and kicking at the cars.

Luis Suarez's second-half strike proved to be the difference as Barcelona moved four points clear at the top of the table from Real Madrid, who are now under pressure after just win in their last five games, with rumours suggesting that boss Carlo Ancelotti could be moved on in the summer.
Bale has bore the brunt of the criticism too and has been booed by his own fans in recent games, including in the recent 4-1 win against Real Sociedad. Bale endured another difficult night against Barcelona, and failed to make an impact - so much so that Spanish newspaper AS refused to give him a mark in their player ratings this morning.

The former Tottenham ace has been heavily linked with a move back to the Premier League, with Manchester United suggested as a potential destination in the summer. Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is believed to be interested in a swoop, and last night's events may well push him closer to Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old joined Real Madrid for a world-record £82 million back in 2013, and would likely fetch a similar fee if Manchester United were to move for him this year.
Since joining Real Madrid, Bale has scored 27 league goals in 52 games, scored a crucial goal in the Champions League final and helped to win the Copa del Rey with a sensational final goal against Barcelona. Not exactly the record of a man who deserves to be booed.
Real Madrid fans are notoriously fickle at the best of times and their treatment of Bale is shameful - although it must be said that the Spanish outlet, Cuatro, who have the video are yet to release it properly, so it may be worth reserving judgement until the full facts are known.
Should Manchester United try and sign Gareth Bale in the summer?
