Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos set a new Clásico appearance record in Wednesday's LaLiga draw arch rivals Barcelona.

Ramos surpasses Sanchís, Gento and Xavi

Ramos, who made his debut in the fixture in 2005, has now featured in 43 Clásicos in all competitions, overtaking Manolo Sanchís, Paco Gento and Xavi Hernández's haul of 42 each.

What's more, Lionel Messi's involvement in the clash at the Camp Nou means he has now also played in 42 Clásicos, making him Barça's joint-top appearance-maker together with Xavi.

Fati the Clásico's youngest this century

Meanwhile, Ansu Fati's introduction as a second-half substitute meant that, at 17 years and 48 days, the Barcelona youth product became the youngest player to appear in a Clásico since the turn of the century.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid ends goalless

The Clásico ended goalless for the first time since 2002, leaving Barça and Madrid tied on 36 points at the top of LaLiga.
