Anoeta was the scene this Saturday of a great game, which was conditioned by the refereeing performance. These were the controversial plays of Real Sociedad-Real Madrid
The Real Madrid is the new leader of LaLiga, but has caused a discussion of which do period. Gerard Hammered confessed does some days that thought that the FC Barcelona had lost the options of title, since it did not see to the 'merengues' losing more points. The Catalan glided that the pupilos of Zinedine Zidane were promoted by the referees, and the clash against the Real Sociedad did not take in giving him the reason.
The first time in Anoeta was insulso by rhythm, occasions and played controversial, since the majority sucedieron after the rest. Both applicants opted by long possessions and there was an interesting fight between Andoni Gorosabel and Vinicius Jr, that during a lot of minutes was for the side. Already they woke up doubts an infringement of Casemiro and another possible of Mikel Oyarzabal, that loaded to Marcelo that it did not protest too much.
But in the resumption arrived the referee's scandal, with a cumulus of questionable actions that resolved in favour of the whites. The first, a penalti difficult to see on the own Vinicius, that was very protested in spite of the labeling of Diego Llorente. Perhaps the more 'legal' was the so much cancelled to Adnan Januzaj, although the offside positional also gives that think. Finally, it is difficult to defend that the control of Karim Benzema that preceded to the 0-2 did not go with the arm. Like this they were the most controversial situations of the meeting in San Sebastián.
The controversies of the Real Sociedad-Real Madrid
Possible red to Casemiro
In the minute 22 of the first-half, there was an aerial dispute between Casemiro and Mikel Merino that finish with fault of the madridista. It can not argue that this carried the arms by in front, and especially his right elbow. Estrada Fernández showed him a yellow that involves suspension, but the double hit to the navarro could have given for more. A red cardboard had not been disproportionate given the violence of the paulista.
Possible penalti to Marcelo
No much more late, in the minute 27, Mikel Oyarzabal loaded to Marcelo when the side had to shoot to door, something that achieved to avoid because the carrilero fell to the floor. The captain 'merengue' seemed to demand to the referees, but did not entertain after a look of circumstances and went back to defend. The touch of hips is ambiguous, and could have translated perfectly in a penalti for the Real Madrid
Penalti To Vinicius
In the minute 48 arrived one of the played keys of the meeting. Diego Llorente forcejea with Vinicius, that adentra in the area and achieves to kick. After the first dance of arms, in which it does not exist at all punishable, there is a very light contact between ankles, but the extreme replaces and desequilibra some seconds afterwards. If there is maximum penalty, is of the most doubtful, what causes that the VAR review without 'wet' because it prevails the decision of the main referee. Of course, it is an action that gives for the debate.
Goal cancelled to Januzaj
With the rule in the hand, the Real can not demand at all by the offside positional of Merino in the minute 69. From the distance is Adnan Januzaj the one who connects a latigazo that cuela by low in the goal of Thibaut Courtois. What himself that gives to think is that the leather happens very far of the midfield player, that in any moment obstructs directly to the cancerbero. What less, is an interpretable action.
Possible hand of Benzema
Instants afterwards, in the minute 70, produces another action that judges Estrada Fernández and in which the VAR opts by not to contradict him to the not having flagrant error, although yes a debate tremendo. There are several arguments to review to judge if before going down the spherical, Karim Benzema helps with the arm or with the shoulder. The static images, as the one who tops the article, carry to think in the first, and also another factor determinant. The calm with which 'die' the ball is more own of a soft zone, and no of an osseous part that would not incur in infringement.
