Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is angry with Lionel Messi after the Barcelona forward sent good luck messages to Atletico Madrid's players on Whats App before Saturday's Madrid derby, according to reports .
The Express claim that Messi sent WhatsApp messages to a number of Atletico players over the course of this week, begging them to do anything to stop Real Madrid taking all three points.
Barcelona are currently second in La Liga, just two points behind Real Madrid who still have a game in hand.
A draw for Real Madrid and a victory for Barca against Malaga would see the two arch-rivals level on points, perfectly setting up El Clasico which is just two weeks away.
Ramos is reportedly hellbent on winning the La Liga with Real Madrid for the first time in five years, but he is furious with Messi for what he calls 'playing dirty'.
Atletico are 10 points off the pace and more or less out of the title-race, but they will be relishing the opportunity for revenge against the side that beat them in the Champions League final last season.
