Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, has questioned why Video Assistant Referee (VAR), was not used to check two “clear” fouls on Raphael Varane in the penalty area, during Wednesday’s goalless Clasico.

In the first half at Camp Nou, Varane was caught by a high challenge from Barca defender, Clement Lenglet.

Varane also had his shirt pulled by Ivan Rakitic, when competing for a corner.

Referee Alejandro Jose Hernandez Hernandez did not award a penalty and neither incident was checked using VAR.

“We saw them at the break and they look pretty clear. They’re both penalties, but we can’t change that now.

“VAR is here to help. It’s bad luck. On another day, it’ll be our turn to have a penalty that they don’t check,” Ramos told Movistar after the game.
