Marcelo: The ref hurt us

Marcelo insisted that ‘the ref hurt us’ after Real Madrid lost 2-1 to Barcelona on Saturday evening.

Goals from Neymar and Alexis Sanchez handed the Blaugrana all three points, but the defender was more interested in the penalties, he feels, his side should have been awarded.

“The ref hurt us tonight,” he told AS. “Needless to say that there were two very clear penalties.

“We know what always happens at Camp Nou. I’m not saying we lost because of the referee, but there are things that happened here that we cannot control.”
