FC Barcelona and Valencia found again in LaLiga, and this time the blanquinegros went back to demolish to the champion. After a first time with the visitors suffering in Mestalla and Marc-André ter Stegen stellar, the team of house tieed up an advantage deserved, with two actions of Maxi Gómez that certified three points for the ones of Albert Celades. Although his advantage was clear, there was numerous protests.

The referee's performance left unsatisfied to both groups, although fortunately it did not influence too much in the final result. The analyses and assessments of Gil Manzano and his assistants caused a lot of doubts, and not even the intervention of the technology contributed something of clarity. Fans and experts treat to be to the day with a rule that in occasions diverts by ways totally inexplicables.

Further of a penalti clear of Gerard Hammered on José Luis Gayà, with a yellow card very take# out, the 'che' mounted in cholera by an action by which the extremeño arrived even to ask pardon. To the edge of the rest, Samuel Umtiti committed an evident fault, and although the trencilla threatened with leaving the law of the advantage, did to sound his whistle and cut a promising attack. To the instant arrepintió of his decision, and jointed the hands to apologise to the footballers that surrounded him, conscious that it had marked the infringement and no longer could correct his mistake.

Another played that anybody understands to unemployed balloon

But the greater problem was a played in which it has changed the rule, and that still do not understand Barça and Valencia. With the 2-0 already in the marker, a goal of Gabriel Paulista was cancelled after annotating in a kickoff of corner, because the referees considered that there was lacking previous on Sergio Busquets. It reviewed the repetition and validated the consideration of Gil Manzano, although there were some seconds of embarrassment until it restarted the game.

Even the own referee had to consult what touched to do, and finish giving back the corner in favour of the venues. It is not the first time that sucede, but the footballers and the technicians do not have clear reason no longer judge the incidents when the balloon is not in movement. If there were aggressions on a thrower or insults before doing film the spherical, neither would penalise ? To day of today, seems that so much the faults in attack like the possible penaltis remain postponed if these circumstances go in like alleviation.

"What do not understand is that it ask to repeat the kickoff of corner. If it cancels the goal, that pite fault. It would like us that they explain it to us and the played does not remain here", demanded Gayà after the meeting, and his trainer, Albert Celades, also pronounced on the same line: "they remain Us doubts on things. It would not be badly receive explanations that do us understand situations in which we do not agree or cost us understand".
