The Real Madrid goes back to walk by the cornice regarding disciplinary sanctions by referee's complaints reifere. The last in loading against the referees was Thibaut Courtois, the one who loaded against César Soto Degree by the penalti conceded to the Villarreal in the second part, action that defined the party in favour of the 'yellow Submarine' in The Ceramics (2-1). For the Belgian, the main judge looked for "to compensate" to the venues after the maximum penalty sanctioned a pair of minutes before by hand of Juan Foyth.

"I think that our penalti against is not it, but the hands are very interpretable and is a penalty. It was his hand of support (of David Praises), do not know which law that, is bad luck... To see if they go back it to us to explain in summer. The referee has compensated with the penaltis", commented the goalkeeper 'merengue'. The Austrian defender slipped in his eagerness for cutting an action of Foyth and finish hitting the balloon with his just right hand in front of Soto Degree.

Previously, the Madrid had equalised the marker thanks to a hand of the same Foyth totally involuntary while it marked to Vinicius Jr. At the end, the ones of Carlo Ancelotti left with the empty hands of The Madrigal after a very toneless party in which they did not deserve better luck. In this regard, Courtois did self-criticism, although it called to the calm because it still remains more than the half of the tournament for contesting.

"We do not begin well the party, had several losses and this allowed them to them go in in the party. Had any against that we do not finish and arrive to the rest with 0-0. In the second part begin still worse, went a pity that touched the balloon (Ferland) Mendy because I do not know if it went was my unemployed", argued the Belgian. The Madrid will travel this week to Arabia to confront to Valencia the Wednesday by the semis of the Supercopa Spanish.
