In the Real Madrid have expressed a feeling of indignation and frustration especially expressed by Emilio Butragueño, that has demanded two penaltis, according to his words, "very clear", on Raphael Varane. They have been two actions of the first time sucedidas in few minutes being Ivan Rakitic one of the protagonists and, the another, Clément Lenglet.

The Barcelona head office, when trying clear a balloon with the head, struck the leg of his compatriot Varane and left him the marked swearwords in the thigh. After the party, asked him to Lenglet why habia sucedido and the Frenchman denied that it had committed penalti on the defence madridista.

"It is not penalti, am the protagonist and know that I do not go to do fault"

"I want to take out the balloon with the head and give strength to my movement so that the ball go out, for this use my legs to push and by bad luck touch the leg of Varane", explained, adding that "I am not a player that likes me give hits, is fellow mio and asked him as it was. It does not seem me penalti, am the protagonist and know that I do not go to do fault, if some think that there is penalti is his opinion".

In spite of reiterating that it had not committed penalti, Lenglet recognised that it had understood that the VAR had taken part in the action to review it. "It is a played that if it reviews it the VAR is normal, because there are people that can think that it is penalti, but it is necessary to respect the decision of the referee", sentenced.

Feeling agridulce

Lenglet Was not very happy of the party since it considers that the FC Barcelona also had his options to win the party, with some clear occasions that have not finish in goal. "Have the feeling to having lost two points. We have had occasions of clear goal, two of Leo, one of Luis and another of Jordi. It remains us a feeling agridulce", commented.

In spite of this, in the speech of Lenglewt also there was place for the self-criticism and recognised that it touches to correct errors in a Classical in which the Real Madrid was to a big level. "It has been missing us more connection with the forwards. Every time that connect had occasions, but do not find them, was difficult because Madrid has played a good party. It is necessary to work to correct all", concluded.
