Again, the Real Madrid went out benefited of a referee's interpretation through the VAR. In this occasion was in Santiago Bernabéu, in the party that the group of Zinedine Zidane played this Saturday in the afternoon against the corresponding Seville to the twelfth day of LaLiga Santander.

To the half hour of game, Luuk of Jong cabeceó at the end of the meshes a hanged balloon after a kickoff of favourable corner to the Seville and, in first instance, the collegiate Martínez Munuera gave by valid the goal. Instants afterwards, the referee received instructions of the VOR so that it went to review the played by means of the images offered by the VAR.

Finally, after reviewing the played, decided to cancel the so much of the Dutch forward to signal fault of Gudelj on Militao. The rectification of the referee generated big controversy and multiple protests of the players​ of the Seville and of his trainer, the ex madridista Julen Lopetegui, since the footballer of the hispalenses found static inside the area and without apparent intention to block to the defence madridista.

In the images, sees clearly like Militao pursues to Of Jong to avoid that this finish and bumps with Gudelj, remaining tended in the lawn. As we say, the action of the player of the Seville is entirely involuntary and apparently is the madridista the one who goes to the Serbian to finish hitting, and no the other way around. Therefore, the controversy is served in Santiago Bernabéu.

Opinions of the ex referees

Andújar Oliver, ex referee and collaborator of Radius MARKS, believes in this same line that never had to signal lacking and that the goal of Of Jong was legal. "I consider that there is not fault of Gudelj on Militao. The player of the Seville is of backs and remains still. It is the central of the Real Madrid the one who hits with the body of Gudelj but in the moment that the referee attends to the monitor was clear that went it to cancel", commented.

By his part, the always controversial Eduardo Iturralde González considers that the goal is very cancelled in statements for Sportive Carousel. "The blocajes are forbidden in the football. Other things is that piten or leave of pitar. It is lacking because the player of the Seville does a light movement. Another debate is why do not sanction this type of blocajes", thought.
