Barcelona 1 Real Madrid 3: Raging Cristiano Ronaldo shoves referee

Real Madrid Barcelona Marco Asensio Transfer News

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has expressed his belief that his players were not "as far away" from a positive outcome as the scoreline suggested in Sunday's 3-1 Supercopa de Espana first leg defeat against Real Madrid.

Lionel Messi equalised with a penalty but Criatiano Ronaldo and Marco Asensio both scored to give Real the win.

Substitute Ronaldo restored Real's lead with a brilliant effort from range 10 minutes from time, but was sent off two minutes later after picking up a second yellow card for diving after going down under pressure from Samuel Umtiti.

"We can't change it, but we'll try and make sure he plays on Wednesday", the former Real Madrid "galatico" revealed.

Ronaldo enjoyed a longer vacation than his Real Madrid teammates to fully recover from Portugal's participation in the Confederations Cup in June.

With just over 49 minutes gone on the clock, the Catalans gifted their rivals the opening goal as Gerard Pique could only turn Marcelo's low delivery past a helpless Ter Stegen and into the back of his own net.

Gerard Deulofeu was handed Neymar's role alongside Messi and Luis Suarez up front against Chapecoense on his return to the club after spells at Everton and AC Milan. I could be annoyed maybe by Ronaldo's red card.

The track of the storm takes it between Hatteras and Bermuda on Tuesday, keeping it off the Carolina coastline by approx. A turn toward the north is forecast to occur Sunday night, followed by a turn to the north-northeast on Monday.

The referee stated in his match report: "Once I showed him the red card, the player (Ronaldo) pushed me lightly showing discomfort".

"Whoever scores first in these games has a huge advantage, and Madrid did very well on the counter-attack".

It seems like every goal Asensio scored is an absolute beauty.

Is the Real Madrid vs Barcelona game online? AS claims that Barcelona, Manchester City and Bayern Munich have "expressed interest" in the midfielder in recent times but Los Blancos have inserted an stunning €700m release clause in the new contract which they believe will end their hopes of signing the player.

Barcelona played its first match without Neymar on Monday in a friendly against Brazilian side Chapecoense.

"I think it was a moment of play that unbalanced him and he didn't feign anything", Ramos said after the match, as quoted by AS.
