Real Madrid Captain Sergio Ramos Reacts On Lionel Messi Clash

Real Madrid Captain Sergio Ramos has accused Lionel Messi of 'taking it badly' after he appeared to elbow the Barcelona star.


The pair were contesting for possession at the Bernabeu when Ramos’ arm struck Messi in the face, leaving the Argentina superstar with a bloodied mouth.

Messi was furious and protested to referee Alberto Undiano Mallenco along with his Barca team-mates, who urged the official to send Ramos off.

Ramos escaped with a yellow card but the visitors had the last laugh as Ivan Rakitic scored the only goal of the game to cement Barca’s place at the top of La Liga.

And Ramos defended his actions by insisting it was an accident, claiming Messi overreacted.

"I didn't mean to catch Messi, but he took it badly,” the defender said.

Barca have now won their last three visits to their bitter rivals and this result came just three days after their 3-0 win in the Copa del Rey semi-final.

They are 10 points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid, who can cut the gap to seven with a win at Real Sociedad today.

"It's a shame that we're gone [from the title race] and the distance is so big, but we're going to keep fighting because everything is possible,” he added.

“We congratulate them on the result. We played well but it was not enough.

"It has been two very intense matches, with a very high level of effort, it is obvious, we have not had much time to recover, they do not either, so it is not anexcuse for us."
