Calendar of FC Barcelona

César Soto Degree was the referee that the RFEF designated for the duel between Granada and FC Barcelona in the New The Cármenes, which finished with tie to two goals. With this news, announced the past Thursday, the culés immediately remembered the controversial of League in front of the Getafe. In that 0-0 expelled so much to Raphinha -very decided- for striking with the arm to Damián Suárez, as to Xavi Hernández for protesting in several opportunities during the meeting, by what both finished being sanctioned with two parties.

Now, in front of the Granada the assistant of Soto Degree considered that Ferran Torres himself did a demeanour to play the balloon the sufficiently evident and interfered with the goalkeeper and the defence of the team granadinista, a consideration that so much the referee like the VAR ratified of way almost incomprehensible. And it is that the big centre of Joao Cancel went clearly to the second stick for the arrival of his compatriot, something that Xavi Hernández also ratified in press conference.

Soto Degree does not doubt in deciding against of the Barça

In spite of being decision of the assistant to signal the offside, and of the VAR to ratify the decision, Soto Degree is the one who had the last word when treating of a played that goes in in the interpretation of the main referee in if Ferran acts of direct way, or no. In fact, in a similar action the Real Madrid annotated a goal against the Getafe in a played in which Joselu attacked the balloon in position of offside and afterwards, after a rebound, finish marking. So much Mario López Melero, as José Luis Munuera Montero, from the VAR, considered that the first action did not interfere in the resolution of the played.

However, the referee of 43 years did not have a similar interpretation and apegó only to the technology of the VAR to signal that the '7' of the Barça was advanced previously. Perhaps the greater problem for the referee of the committee riojano is that in the Getafe-Barça did not concede a penalti clear on Ronald Araujo, failing also in an action of interpretation.

Memories very little pleasant for the Barça

In that opportunity, on request of the VAR, Soto Degree attended to review the image, but in place to signal the maximum penalty in favour of the Barça, decided pitar hand of Gavi in the precisely previous action, when the Barcelona midfield player simply treated to finish the balloon without seeing by where came him the spherical. Still like this, and with a rebound also in his shoulder, signalled that action and left to the Barça without the possibility to execute the penalti, already when the party had surpassed the 90 statutory minutes.

Casualidad Or no, in two of the three tropiezos of the Barça this season has been present Soto Degree and could result curious also that the culés have a negative balance with this referee. Right now the Barça great four defeats, three ties and three victories, being grieve the third case in all the history of LaLiga in which the Barça presents more defeats that victories with a referee, adding the ones of José Luis Meadows García and Juan Senén Acebal Nipple.
