FOX Sports Asia brings you all the salient points that the El Clasico threw up that are worth dissecting, as Real Madrid held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals at the Nou Camp.

In a competition of such magnitude, which could realistically present Real Madrid with their only chance of winning a trophy this season, Keylor Navas' moment of madness could prove to be a vital point of difference at the end of the tie.

"But risking the fitness of any player - Messi or anyone else - I'm not really in favour of it because they inevitably play with some fear, and games like tomorrow can not be played with fear". But that a kid of 18 years old plays in this way does not often happen.

Solari said he felt his side had created the better chances and predicted a lot more drama in the second leg at the Bernabeu on Feb 27.

When asked whether he felt the draw was the right result, he measuredly declared: "It is very hard to speak about justice in football". But it was a very nice game of football, swung back and forward. "It's an open-ended result, there's a lot of quality out on the pitch and anything can happen at any time". This game is confirmation that this group of players is working very well.

"Marcelo is our vice captain, and puts Madrid above everything", Solari said.

A downer on the night for Madrid was another suspected muscle injury for young midfielder Marcos Llorente, who limped off with an hour gone.
