Real Madrid star praises Lionel Messi in ‘crazy’ Clasico: These two moments were pivotal
And after James Rodriguez had equalised for the hosts, Barca broke in the final seconds, taking advantage of Madrid’s one-man deficit.
Right-back Carvajal insists his team-mates do not deserve criticism tough, and labelled the defeat to their biggest rivals “no big deal”.
“It was a crazy game, the red card decided the match,” Carvajal said.
“We managed to get back level, but ultimately a counter-attack took the three points.
“Calmness is needed, it’s no big deal. We have one more game left than them, this is football and we have to keep going.
“Messi’s performance? Barcelona won. Messi had a great game, but Barcelona won.
“You can’t criticise the team, we have another League game on Wednesday and we must keep going. There’s still a long way to go.”
Luis Enrique’s side moved back ahead of Madrid on goal difference, although Zinedine Zidane’s team still have a game in hand.
