Real Madrid whinge about referee

Real Madrid duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos slammed referee Alberto Undiano after their side’s 4-3 loss to Barcelona on Sunday.

Both hinted Undiano wanted Barca back in the La Liga title race by giving Gerardo Martino’s men favourable decisions during El Clasico.

Lionel Messi’s hat-trick led his side to the much-needed win in a match that included three penalties– two to Barca and one to Real – and a red card to Ramos.

Ronaldo believes Real are consistently mistreated by referees in El Clasico encounters, with the win moving Barca within a point of Atletico and Real (70 points each).

“We played against 12. It’s always the same. They don’t allow us. Maybe they wanted Barca back in the league,” Ronaldo told reporters.

“I don’t want to leave this inside of me and I’m not looking for excuses but the ref is not at the required level for a game like this.

“If Barca lost today they would have been out. After five years here (in Spain), I understand how things work.

“I have never seen Real Madrid favoured by the referees. I’m sure that no matter about all this, we will win the league.”

Ronaldo was awarded the most controversial of the three penalties on 55 minutes, when he was clipped outside the area but fell inside to earn a spot-kick.

The 29-year-old converted to put Real 3-2 ahead but the game turned in the 63rd minute as Ramos was sent off after making contact with Neymar, as the Brazilian looked to put away a one-on-one chance.

Ramos felt the result was ‘pre-meditated’ and believes Neymar went down without contact, despite replays showing the defender’s left leg catching the attacker.

“It’s always the same. I didn’t touch Neymar but there’s no point talking about it, it changes nothing,” he said.

“Everyone can see what happened. We could have got something from the game but got nothing.

“There are some things you can’t fight against. This was pre-meditated.

“I stopped because I preferred 3-3 rather than a penalty and a sending off.”

  1. fact says:

    Stop blaming the referee. If he favour barca he wouldn’t blow penalty for real M. Cr7 didn’t complained that he was favoured to earn a penalty instead of a free kick. Let sergio Ramos admit his mistake and stop making excuses. The officiating was fair enough.

  2. wasu says:

    you were outplayed by the little number 10 and now you are blaming the refree, just admit that Messi is the greatest player ever. CR7 comment on the penalty you were given b4 you comment on others

  3. mimi says:

    whinning as usual. . Karma is always a bitch so quit complaining

  4. cloud says:

    i could make a script about the barcelona-drama-actors or should i say, the referee this time ::

    referee :: i’ll give a penalty for Real but don’t worry, i’ll punish them later with a red card and two penalties, just do your usual ACTING

    i can’t understand why every time there is a big game for barcelona, there is always controversy. not just against Real but with other teams as well. it’s just so consistent that the referee always favours Barca. such obvious BS.

  5. Rick says:

    Neymar * jumps onthe floor with barely any contact* : ” AI AI DEUS, caramba! What a pain ahh oehh “( holds onto the wrong leg and wigles around)

    Ref:(( hmm just as we practiced at half time))
    Makes (no) sense->
    Bccs actual contact ( like at ronaldos( freekick should be) penalty there was contact) and slidings arnt rewarded with a card
    But a flying aroun over nothing gets red

    ^ makes totaly sense? Does it

  6. Willian says:

    But honesty
    Ronaldos penalty kick should have been a free kick, but still. He could have scored that closelt to goal!
    But the ramos red
    Come on barca fans! Atleast have the GUTs and sportmanship to admit it!!!
    And if ramos woudnt have gotten red
    The game would have been more equal like the first half with better quality play
    Insted of the ref. Ruinining it even more….

    And they woudnt need xabi alonoso to go and do aome
    Half asses work as defender….

    Hmmm real outplayed barca by far in te first half
    Even though it was 2-2
    real had tons of changes and played better, but at the start of the second half barca defintly started better( and even though im an real madrid fan- hala madrid!- im not afraid to admit it)
    Everyone could see… That this ref was rly cr@###p
    And something messed up in his mind.
    Im not gonnna say barca bought him or that he was idk corrupted.
    But a terrible ref he was!!!
    And the red card. Ruined the classico
    It could easily have turned to a 5-5 specital
    Or idk
    With ramos and benzema in
    The night could have gone on loonger and longee
    Insted of the ref puting an end to the game

    I jus hope both fans( madrid/barca) can look at the game
    And agree

    The ref sucked
    And barca had the luck that the ref sucked in a good way for them.

    And yesh somethimes it happens for realadrid also
    And they get lucky, but
    Im stil
    Man enough to admit it xd

  7. cloud says:

    in the UCL quarter finals. Barca are held 1-1 by Atletico, im sure on the second leg there would be MIRACLES in favour of Barca.

  8. ellijah says:

    if it is the act how amazing actors they are if its the miracle let more of that come through for us if they bought a refree let them continue so we can win more games we all have our own opinion the fact is you can talk all the bad thing about barca but we won all two matche in legue

  9. Sun says:

    Fact is Real Madrid lost
    Ronaldo had a poor game and has so much pride that he couldn’t be humble and take it in the chin and has to cry like a baby and blame the referee.
    Messi scored a hatrick in his own back yard which hurt him even more .
    They were both penalties and Ramos definitely held him back shouldn’t be making schoolboy errors for referee to make a desicion on all the top pundits agree no ones fault but real
