Barcelona and Real Madrid played out their first goalless draw in their 179th El Classico meeting since 2002 to set up a historic record.
Amidst protest the match was played and it was evident things were not well with Catalonia fans hurling yellow balls on the field in the 56' minutes.
Both teams were earlier lodged in the same hotel and were moved to the venue of the match amidst heavy security.
The result means both teams are still tied on 36 points each and move five points clear off Sevilla, but with Barcelona on top due to goal difference.
The only goal of the clash which came through Gareth Bale was ruled out for offside, probably calming the tension which would have erupted should Madrid had won.
Zinedine Zidane maintained his unbeaten record in El Classico, becoming the only manager to have gone unbeaten at Camp Nou.
