Calendar of FC Barcelona

The derbi of the quarter-finals of the Glass of Rey, between Real Madrid and Athletic of Madrid, was very 'hot' and full of controversies, especially in the extention. The ones of Carlo Ancelotti achieved the pass to the 'semis', after a traced back 'typical' of the ones of Santiago Bernabéu, but no without having remained in the focus by the questionable decisions of Soto Degree.

Without place to doubts, the action that more defined the party was the expulsion of Stefan Savic before the ten minutes of the extention after receiving two yellow cardboards in less than 3'. First, the player of the Athletic was punished by a protest beside Vinicius Jr, after a fault of Nahuel Molina on the Brazilian.

In one of the following played, the montenegrino sinned of strength in an entrance on Eduardo Camavinga by the band and Soto Degree did not doubt in taking out him the second cardboard to command it to the street and leave to the Athletic with ten players for, practically, all the extention. Three minutes afterwards Karim Benzema put the 2-1 'almost' definite.

However, the history could have been very, very distinct. And it is that, before the Real Madrid empatara the marker (in the 79', thanks to a golazo of Rodrygo Goes with a big played individual), the ones of Carlo Ancelotti could remain with ten footballers, with Dani Ceballos in the focus after they forgave him the second yellow cardboard and, therefore, the expulsion in the statutory time.

The midfield player there was ingresado before the end of the first part to replace to Ferland Mendy, the one who went out lesionado. In the 68', saw the first card by a hard fault on Antoine Griezmann, that pretended to begin a played of attack from own field. Two minutes afterwards, Ceballos went back to compete a fault in the frontal and remained impune, although the players of the Athletic demanded the second.

Complaints of the Athletic of Madrid

The picture 'colchonero' has loaded against the arbitration after the end of the party, because they understand that it is inadmissible that the referee have expelled to Stefan Savic and that, by the contrary, Dani Ceballos had been 'forgiven'. Jan Oblak said that "I think that if it is red for us, would have to have been for them. With 1-0 they also could receive a second yellow. We are accustomed to this. It is complicated. The team has struggled to the end. We have done all, at the end have put the third. We have struggled against all".

Rodrigo of Paúl, by his part, declared in 'The 1' that "it was a clear situation. It was second yellow for Ceballos? For vos also was it, no? It had loved us that some time went for our side. This raisin and it is necessary to follow", whereas the 'Cholo' Simeone, stood out that "we defended very well until the golazo of Rodrygo. Before there is a played determinant, that is the one of Ceballos. Careless raisin and does not matter him to anybody. It could leave us eleven against ten with 0-1 and repeat, does not matter him to anybody. These are details that determine to a side or another".
