When the clock was close to minute 75 at Real Madrid-Real Sociedad, Melero Martínez forgave Nacho Fernández's second yellow card in a very clear action that could perfectly leave the madridistas with ten on the pitch
The Real Madrid empató this Sunday against the Real Sociedad in the nineteenth day of LaLiga in a party in which both teams looked for the victory, but in which they finished doing him a big favour to the FC Barcelona so that they proclaimed champions of winter to fault of a day for contesting.
The case is that, in the party of the madridistas, the referee's referee dressed of hero to save to the ones of Carlo Ancelotti of an expulsion by double yellow that was very deserved. Nacho Fernández had received the first card in the last minutes of the first part by a fault in the balcony of the rival area, and in the second half could see the second.
And it is that, to fault of fifteen minutes for the end, the right side jumped with the arms in high to avoid that it produced a kickoff of band of Robert Navarro. Nacho understood that the kickoff was for the Real Madrid and wanted to do with the balloon, but the referee already had warned that corresponded to the visitors.
This type of actions, in all the cases, supposes a caution. It had been the second for the defender madridista, that finish saving to leave to the street and leave to his with ten in the final stretch of the party. Some minutes afterwards, sorpresivamente, Melero Martínez showed a yellow cardboard to Imanol Bailiff, trainer of the Real Sociedad, by the same.
The 'excuse' of Nacho
In statements to 'Movistar' after the party, Nacho Fernández was questioned by the action and the expulsion forgiven, but the defender of the Madrid recognised that "I cut the action but thought that the kickoff was ours. Fortunately for me it has not been card". Even he had clear that could have been quietly expelled of the party.
