Pablo: Real were rubbish

Atletico Madrid defender Pablo Ibanez has dismissed Real Madrid, saying it was unbelievable that the Rojiblancos only drew Saturday's derby. The home side were vastly superior, but the match ended 1-1 after Gonzalo Higuain equalised and Luis Perea had a goal wrongly disallowed.

"That was the worst Real Madrid performance I have seen for a long time," said Pablo.

"We were in complete control of the match and had many more chances to score. Real only had one shot and that was the equaliser. Our bad luck is incredible.

"Atletico Madrid were totally superior and the draw was unjust. We are very unhappy in the team because it was a great opportunity to take a big leap towards the Champions League.

"The referee failed but these things happen in football."

The referee has acknowledged he made a mistake.

Arturo Dauden Ibanez appeared to give Perea's 15th-minute effort before ruling it out when the linesman flagged for offside.

"I have seen the television replays and we were wrong. We will analyse what happened to make sure it doesn't happen again," Ibanez told Marca.
