Madrid appealed but that was rejected a few hours before the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu, meaning Ronaldo misses the match as well as his team's first four La Liga fixtures. "All my support to affected families and the city", in a translated tweet from Spanish.
Deportivo coach Pepe Mel has said that he would be happy with a goalless draw against Real Madrid at the weekend.
And from Paris, a city that has also suffered similar terror outrages, Paris Saint-Germain's Spanish coach Unai Emery was "very saddened by the news coming from Barcelona, unfortunately one more black day".
He was given an additional four-match ban for shoving the referee in the back after he was shown the red card.
"He behaved perfectly and we closed the deal quickly".
"He set up preseason in that way, he wants us to have a good base for the rest of the season". It is like a second home for the Argentine, who is a product of the Barcelona academy. It was carnage on the streets, with bodies lying helpless on the floor.
There is also a repeat of last season's opening game in the Sanchez Pizjuan where Sevilla entertain Espanyol.
Cristiano Ronaldo has failed in his bid to overturn his five-match ban for pushing a referee during Real Madrid's Supercopa de Espana first-leg win over Barcelona. "They all do what's expected of them".
"This team has hunger and every time we play it shows", added Zidane.
The Real Madrid and Barcelona stars head the shortlist for the FIFA World Player of the Year.
Ronaldo, who entered the field in the 58th minute to replace French striker Karim Benzema, was first booked for taking off his jersey while celebrating a spectacular goal in the 79th minute.
Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said the team needs to recover emotionally as the Spanish league is about to start. He says the club has fallen asleep, and as such, Real Madrid has benefited from that.
Late on, summer signings Theo Hernandez and Dani Ceballos debuted from the bench, while watching from the stands were Marcos Llorente and Jesus Vallejo, two more young players who will receive chances this season after impressing on loan spells away last year.
The transfer market is still open, which means Camp Nou could add several new talents in quick succession.
If not for Messi's enduring genius, it would be harder to make a case for this Barca squad usurping Madrid than it is for Atleti - still with Antoine Griezmann in their ranks - sustaining a more credible title challenge.
