Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 2-1 at the Camp Nou in Saturday's El Clasico, and Madridistas will feel aggrieved about a second-half penalty decision that went against their team.

With Real Madrid trailing 1-0 at the time, Cristiano Ronaldo went to ground in the box under pressure from Barcelona's Javier Mascherano. Contact was made, but the referee waved play on. 

Was it the right call? The play appears in the GIF below.
