Xavi moans: Real Madrid's Ronaldo should've been booked!

Xavi complained about the match officials after Barcelona' 1-1 draw at Real Madrid in the first-leg of their Copa del Rey semifinal.

Xavi felt Cristiano Ronaldo should have been booked during the game and was unhappy with the manner of Raphael Varane's equaliser.
