Raphael Varane dismissed talk the VAR favoured Real Madrid after the La Liga giants moved closer to the league title with a win over Deportivo Alaves.
A Karim Benzema penalty and Marco Asensio goal saw Madrid record a 2-0 win on Friday, moving four points clear of rivals Barcelona with three games left.
Madrid were awarded a spot-kick for the third straight game, while the VAR was needed after Asensio’s goal was initially incorrectly ruled out for an offside decision against Benzema.
Varane, who helped Madrid keep a clean sheet for the fifth straight game, was unfazed by any talk decisions were going his team’s way.
“Outside noise doesn’t matter to us. We are focused on winning and giving everything on the pitch,” the defender told Movistar.
“We don’t control the VAR, we control the effort and attitude we show on the pitch.”
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu accused the video technology of favouring Madrid after Los Blancos won 1-0 against Athletuc Club last week.
