Butragueno: We didn’t deserve to lose

Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno has insisted that Los Blancos didn’t deserve to lose El Clasico.

The capital club lost 2-1 to Barcelona at Camp Nou this evening, but the former striker was adamant that his men should have come away with all three points.

“We didn’t deserve to lose,” he told reporters. “We have not been favoured in the key moments.

“We were clearly superior for the first 30 minutes of the second half, but Victor Valdes put in a man of the match performance.

“Mascherano pushed Ronaldo [inside the area], and that decision was critical for the game. It was a very clear penalty from our standpoint.”
