Real Madrid beat Atlético in a Madrid derby that is rarely exempt from controversy. The rojiblancos claimed a penalty in the first half for the demolition of Casemiro to Morata that neither the referee nor the VAR saw
The Real Madrid did not fail in the derbi Madrilenian and imposed to an Athletic of Madrid that left with life to the whites in the first part and sank in the second. The ones of Zinedine Zidane completed an abysmal first-half in which the colchoneros had until three occasions of clear goal to advance . In the second, instead, the entrance of Vinicius Jr changed the meeting and the merengues finish winning thanks to a so much of Karim Benzema.
During the athletic superiority in the first 45 minutes there was a played that is outraging a lot in the breast rojiblanco. The Atleti asked penalti on Morata by a demolish of Casemiro in the 31 with 0-0 in the marker. The referee saw it perfectly, but decided no pitar at all. The VAR, by his part, reviewed the played as always and neither communicated him to the referee that saw the controversial action in the screen on foot of field.
Morata Complained by the entrance of the Brazilian, but the crash continued without greater problems. The true is that the contact when it demolishes him is very evident and the referee could have signalled maximum penalty without any problem. The mediocentro madridista threw on of the Madrilenian tip, that finish in the floor to the instant. If the VAR did not go in was probably because the ex canterano of the Madrid also put of his part to finish in the lawn and was an action of the calls 'grey'.
In spite of this, surprised a lot see the celerity with which the VAR and the referee dismissed a played tremendously controversial. The decision of not signalling infringement was in hardly some seconds and no the minute that are used to to last a lot of reviews. This tool is raising increasingly ampollas, since a lot of teams think that there is not a criterion unified to the hour to signal some actions and to review them or no in the screen.
Cerezo Complained after the party
Enrique Cerezo, president of the Athletic of Madrid, showed his indignation in the microphones of Movistar after the party. "If the VAR is for something is to review this type of played. For me it was a penalti clear. It is very difficult pitar a penalti in these parties. There has not been neither justice neither clarity. It is difficult because the referee can see it or not to see it", began ensuring the leader colchonero.
The maximum mandator of the Atleti finalised signalling that the played was clearly so that it went in the VAR and reviewed by the referee on foot of field. "In the case of today there has been a played that needed a review of the VAR and does not have dignado neither to go. The VAR that all want to, with 'V' no with 'B', is to review these things", concluded, annoying with the referee's performance.
