Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has accused Barcelona forward Lionel Messi to have put pressure on the referee in the tunnel at halftime.

Both Barca and Madrid have locked horns at Camp Nou on Saturday evening as the El Clasico ended up with a 2-2 draw.

The Catalans finished the first half with 10 men as Sergi Roberto was dismissed on the 45th minute for fouling Marcelo.

The Los Blancos were unhappy with some referee’s decisions against them during the second half. And Ramos thinks Messi may have influenced referee Alejandro Hernandez and forced him to make wrong decisions.

“Messi put pressure on the referee in the tunnel at halftime,” Ramos told reporters after the game.

“I don’t know if there were cameras. And I don’t know if he would have made other decisions in the second half.”

“However, it’s important to leave these things on the pitch, you have to show respect.”

Barcelona are now unbeaten side this season after 35 league games with only three games remaining to set the record.
