Messi put referee under pressure in tunnel, says Ramos after 'Clasico'



El Clasico saw plenty of controversial moments. Barcelona has already won a double this season the Copa del Rey and the La Liga and the Catalonia outfit included the guard of honour in their post-match celebrations at the Camp Nou.

Eight yellow cards and one red were shown by referee Alejandro Hernandez Hernandez as tempers flared and players scuffled, but Valverde felt his side were in with a chance of claiming all three points despite their man disadvantage.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos criticised Luis Suarez, saying his team refused to stop play for the Barcelona forward because of "how he is".

"Messi put a little bit of pressure [on Hernandez Hernandez] in the tunnel", Ramos told reporters after the game. "He said everything to him".

The 32-year-old Spaniard further stated football related activities must be respected and must not be taken off the pitch.

Ronaldo added a goal of his own and gave Madrid's fans a scare when he couldn't play on through a leg injury and needed to be substituted at halftime. Ramos and Suarez went head to head and then Sergi Roberto was red-carded for what was probably one of the most innocuous incidents of the game when the referee adjudged he had struck Marcelo, although the contact has half-hearted at most.

Lionel Messi fired the Liga champions back in front after 52 minutes but Gareth Bale's brilliant finish earned Real a share of the spoils.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo vies with Barcelona's Sergi Roberto. The Uruguayan after the game, "It was bit of a foul against Varane. However, the decision comes down to the referee", he said.

After 4 minutes, Cristiano Ronaldo burst into the box, the heel threw the ball to Kroos. Keylor Navas parries the effort and Suarez scores on the rebound. Marcelo completely lost track of his man, the latest in a persistent line of defensive blunders that have plagued Real's defence of late. Extremely tough call but the official word stood that it was offside.

The other one was Suarez's challenge on Varane before Messi's goal, with the Uruguayan striker admitting that he was surprised a foul wasn't called after he clearly tripped the France global.

Suarez started and finished off a quick attack when he played Roberto clear down the hole left by Marcelo on the right flank.
