The FC Barcelona suffered more than the account to tie up the three points in Valladolid, but would not have to have been like this. Because, in addition to going commanding in the marker during almost all the party, since Arturo Vidal advanced to the culés to the chamber of hour of the first time, the reality is that in the second part the Barça deserved to have a new clear opportunity to duplicate the advantage: a penalti no distinguished.

Gerard Hammered protested angrily, in the minute 77 of party, an agarrón flagrant of Kiko Olives in the intentona for finishing an aerial balloon. The Barcelona head office had won the position, but the agarrón of the defender pucelano -had him taken during all the played- prevented him jump to finish as it is had to, leaving the balloon died in the small area and without being able to give him strength and direction.

Mateu Lahoz Did the fat sight with his usual 'follow, follow', remembering from the distance to Hammered that, if the action was merecedora of penalti, would warn him of this from the VAR. The true is that Martínez Munuera neither considered that it existed maximum penalty, by what the played remained in the limbo for stupefaction of Hammered and of some mates like Jordi Alba, that carried even a yellow for protesting him to Mateu.

"I hammered and his rival go pushing and the agarrón of the defence prevents him to the Barcelona finish, action that would have to sanction with penalti", explains Barrenechea Montero, ex professional referee and at present analyst for 'MD'. To the equal that he, many other experts think that the played would have to have sanctioned with maximum penalty in favour of the culés, that in normal conditions would have served to sentence the party.

And if the Valladolid there was empatado the party?

And it is that at least the Barcelona attained to keep the result to carry the three points, but... And if it had not been like this? In the case that the Valladolid there was empatado the marker before the end, without place to doubts would have gone back to arm a big controversy around the VAR, giving the reason to those who defend that it is favouring to teams like the Real Madrid and prejudicing to others like the Barça in the last days.

An opinion that some considered a blasphemy against the cleaning of the arbitration and also a lack of respect to the Real Madrid, but that is being supported with arguments of weight to measure that happen the weeks. Every time they are less those who think that the Madrid has not resulted favoured to referee's level after the confinement, in contrast with other teams as for example the Barça. The one who see all the parties of both teams, will know that like this it is.
