Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos praised VAR after their win at Barcelona.

The turning point was a lengthy VAR decision for the Ramos penalty. Referee Juan Martínez Munuera did not spot Clement Lenglet’s pull on Ramos’ shirt but eventually gave a penalty after viewing it on the screen.

“A Clasico was a unique opportunity, plus it doesn’t matter how you come into the game physically [because] there’s always an extra motivation,” Ramos said.

“We had to be united after a terrible week, but there’s no time to feel sorry for ourselves. Over the course of the season, you go through bad runs and thankfully this one only lasted a week.

“This win is great for our morale. We knew how to not let the criticism get to us. We’re happy, but let’s continue like this. Winning at the home of your eternal rival is always very rewarding.

“I’ve spent 16 years here and one week of crisis at Real Madrid is two games. They don’t have to change our objectives. Now it’s about winning three out of three [this week] and giving a good account of ourselves in the Champions League.

“We’re going to stand firm. We don’t have to stick our chests our, even though this victory tastes like glory because it comes at the stadium of our eternal rivals.”
