Messi calls referee shit during 2-2 classico draw with Real Madrid

He never appeared to look right following the goal and was subsequently taken off as a precaution at the break, replaced by Marco Asensio.

Madrid play the Champions League final against Liverpool on May 26, but Zidane said he did not think Ronaldo was in danger of missing the showpiece in Kiev. Soon after, Samuel Umtiti shielded the ball from Gareth Bale and the Welshman chose to go studs first on the back of the Frenchman's leg.

"Messi put pressure on the referee in the tunnel at half-time", the defender said in his post-match interview.

Just moments earlier Real forward Gareth Bale had not been punished for a studs-up challenge on Samuel Umtiti.

"Our quest continues to finish the league without a loss", said Andres Iniesta, who played his 38th and final game against Madrid before he leaves the club after 16 seasons this summer.

"This was a Clasico with nothing at stake but we saw a great game", Zidane told reporters. "In the end, those who earned it are the players, those who represent us". "It's not important. There is a lot of tension in these games".

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos laid into Barcelona stars Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez after Sunday's 2-2 draw in El Clasico.

Madrid felt Jordi Alba brought Marcelo down in the box but the referee waved away the appeals, before Messi missed two late openings as the last Clasico of the season ended with the spoils shared.

"Clasicos should be played like this, it was a attractive game", Suarez told reporters.

"We're not anxious about the final", Zidane, who has won back-to-back Champions League titles in charge of Madrid, is quoted by the BBC.

But with Barca remaining on track to go the entire LaLiga season unbeaten, Iniesta was happy to be able to go out on a high.

Pique grabbed a microphone to explain the situation to the crowd: "As they didn't want to give us a guard of honour, I ask our staff to do it and we'll do it like that".
