The Uruguay international opened the scoring in Saturday's clash but his side were forced to settle for a point and he admitted they did not take their chances

Luis Suarez felt Barcelona were the better side in Saturday's Clasico after Sergio Ramos' late equaliser earned Real Madrid a 1-1 La Liga draw at Camp Nou.

Ramos: We were lucky to get a point

Suarez's header gave Barca the lead after 53 minutes but, in the last minute of normal time, Ramos powered in from a Luka Modric set-piece to claim a point for the La Liga leaders.

The Catalan giants had missed a string of chances to extend their lead and close out the game, but the Uruguay international believes his side did enough to win the match.

"I don't know if I'm sad or not," Suarez said on beIN Sports after the match.

"We knew playing at home that we had to be very strong and that we had to keep working and give everything until the last moment.

"Such things happen in football. That's the sort of thing football is [about]. 

"We worked hard, had chances, but if you don't take them then that sort of thing can happen.

"I think we were the better side and we did everything possible. Now we have to be strong and keep on."
