It was not the first clash they had, with Ramos tripping Messi before but not being booked.

Then with Ramos and Messi tussling for the ball, the defender swung his arm and caught Messi in the face.

He fell to the turf but the referee ignored him.

Madrid would not put the ball out and eventually the official blew for half-time.

Messi and Ramos went face to face, with the Argentine furious. He showed the referee a cut on his mouth where Ramos made contact.

The Madrid defender should have been booked or even sent off.
