Barca had two penalty appeals turned down in the match, when Messi went down from a challenge by Varane in the first half and when the ball bounced off the arm of Varane in the second

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman was fiercely critical of the referee and video assistant after his side were beaten 3-1 at home to Real Madrid in Saturday’s “Clasico” in La Liga.

Sergio Ramos was awarded a penalty midway through the second half following a pitchside Video Assistant Referee review when his shirt was tugged by Barca defender Clement Lenglet.

The Real captain scored from the spot to restore his side’s lead before Luka Modric added the third, inflicting a second consecutive league defeat on the Catalans after last week’s 1-0 loss at Getafe.

Barca had two penalty appeals turned down in the match, when Lionel Messi went down from a challenge by Raphael Varane in the first half and when the ball bounced off the arm of Varane in the second.

Neither incident was reviewed by the referee on the pitchside monitor.

Ramos, however, had no doubt the right decisions had been made.
