Over the weekend, Real Madrid and Barcelona clashed in what's likely to be the final El Clasico of the season.

The sides actually met a few days before that in the Copa del Rey, with Barca cruising to a 3-0 victory and reaching the final of the Spanish Cup. 

On Saturday though, it was a far tighter game. 

Ivan Rakitic's first-half strike was enough to separate the teams and his finish was one worthy of winning the Clasico.

Sergi Roberto's classy through ball played Rakitic in behind the Madrid defence and the midfielder coolly chipped the ball over Thibaut Courtois from a tight angle. 

Barca were able to hold on to their one-goal lead and ensured that all three points came back to the Nou Camp. 

The rest of the game was far from dull and there were also a number of other flashpoints throughout.

Moments before the break, Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi clashed after it appeared that the Los Blancos captain deliberately elbowed the Argentine forward.

Ramos' behaviour clearly irked Messi, who got back to his feet and squared up with the defender before exchanging a few choice words. 

Rather smartly, the referee blew for half-time as the two locked horns, preventing the situation from boiling over.  

While that coming together was well documented, there was also another heated exchange that many fans may have missed while watching the game unfold.

It involved 22-year-old Sergio Reguilon trying to wind up Luis Suarez and Messi. Brave move, right?

Footage has emerged of the Real defender saying "don't touch me...don't touch me...you are so ugly, you are so ugly" after a confrontation Suarez. 

Insulting the Uruguayan to his face is brave enough, but Reguilon went one step further and even had a go at Messi too. 

When the Barca captain tried to intervene, the Spanish defender said "what did you say? What's the matter with you? Flea (Messi's nickname)... What? What's wrong with you?" 

Check out the full exchange below. 

Wow. Reguilon showed no fear getting involved in the heat of battle during his first El Clasico and that kind of mentality has got to be respected.

Of course, Suarez and Messi had the last laugh though.
