The refereeing has been cruel to FC Barcelona this season. Between the League and the Champions League, the referees have denied the culés a dozen penalties. Both the principals and those in charge of the VAR, increasingly erratic
The clear pisotón of Mario Beautiful on Joao Félix the Sunday completes the listing of penaltis no conceded to the FC Barcelona this season. The justification of the referees in the action of the central Spanish on the mediapunta luso was to define the played like "a penalti residual" that, according to the criterion implemented by the Referee's Technical Committee of LaLiga for this season.
With this, the Barça great already 10 penaltis no sanctioned this season, a scandal that no only has remitted to the First Spanish Division. So much in League as in Champions, the ones of Xavi Hernández have had to resignarse to launch a coin to the air before each party to know if the referees will make a mistake in his against. So much in Spain as in the rest of Europe, the arbitration is each more questioned day.
The points that has lost the Barça in League by penaltis no pitados
Explaining the penalti of Crest on Lamine Yamal (during the 2-2 in front of the Mallorca), the one of Tchouaméni on Ronald Araújo (in the 1-2 of the Classical), the one of Espino against Raphinha and the one of Lejeune on Lewandowski (in the 1-1 in front of the Ray), the Barça easily could have six points more in the table, with which would be leader of LaLiga with two points more than Girona and Real Madrid.
This without explaining the controversial hand of Araújo sanctioned in the Getafe-Barça, previous to a very clear penalti on Gavi. Neither the clear push of Iza Carcelén on Yamal (2-0 in front of the Cádiz), lto fault of Baena on the same Lamine in front of the Villarreal (triumph culé by 3-4) and the agarrón of Zubeldia to Joao Félix in San Sebastián (another victory culé by 0-1). To the Barça only has touched him cross this season with the referee's errors, increasingly scandalous and frequent in the tournament. The RFEF promised less interference of the VAR this season. Well, the results are in sight. With or without leadership of the VAR, the referees follow prejudicing to the show.
In Champions neither there has been luck for the Barça
By his part, in Europe also have had failures against of the Barça. Although the ones of Xavi Hernández already ensured his pass to the eighth of final of the Champions League, the culés saw how, in front of the Shakhtar, the team lost the invicto (1-0) in a party where did not sanction a clear penalti of Giorgi Gocholeishvili by a hand that blocked a head butt of Lamine. In the first duel in front of the Ukrainians (2-1) also there was a hand inside the area of Mykola Matviyenko in which so much the main like the VAR did the 'dress fat'.
