The FC Barcelona protested until three possible penaltis in favour against the Athletic of Bilbao in Saint Mamés. The first was a hand in the interior of the area after going out the balloon rebounded from the heel of Arturo Vidal, by what the referee hit to the not signalling the maximum penalty. The thing was not so clear in the others two actions, of which the Barça could have taken out oil.

One was a clear hand of Óscar of Frames in the interior of the area before clearing the balloon. The player of the Athletic accommodated the balloon with the arm to be able to control it better, but the referee Of the Big Hill did not signal penalti. Neither it did it in the last played of the party, already in the minute 95, when Nélson Semedo was demolished by Yeray Álvarez.

The referee became warned by the VAR, but finally determined that there was not penalti and decreed the end of the party. The case is that in this last played Semedo himself was clearly demolished by the player of the Athletic, although the footballer also touched balloon and the played could be extensively argued in favour and against by part of the analysts.

The three possible penaltis were protested by the FC Barcelona without any luck. In any case, fits to highlight that the FC Barcelona did not deserve to win neither much less the party, since even it could have it stray if Ter Stegen had not been inspired with his two unemployed saviours, one in each part to Susaeta and Iñaki Williams, respectively.

Regarding Nélson Semedo, it is necessary to stand out also his courage in the confined offensive in spite of not being the left band his usual position, having the difficult work to substitute to Jordi Alba. The Portuguese was well in attack, but without the depth that contributes the one of L'Hospitalet. In defence, like the rest of the Barcelona team, did not offer a big security.

The FC Barcelona can not trust League

Just tie, in general lines, for a FC Barcelona that will enjoy now of some days of rest before preparing the next party of LaLiga Santander against the Valladolid. In spite of the distribution of points in Saint Mamés, the culés follow having of a wide advantage -six points- regarding his main perseguidor in LaLiga, the Real Madrid. To the whites remains them a lot for rowing... But the Barça can not trust.
