FC Barcelona and Real Sociedad left in tie his duel in LaLiga, in a day with referee's controversy in San Sebastián. In the stadium of Anoeta advanced the venues with goal of Mikel Oyarzabal, Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suárez traced back momentáneamente and Alexander Isak put the definite tables. In spite of the efforts of both teams, there was two played controversial that marked the clash.

The collegiate Alberola Rojas was protagonist by two actions treaded that judged, surprisingly, with different criteria. First, an agarrón of Sergio Busquets to Diego Llorente -that also was him attaching- was signalled like penalti, and the 'txuri-urdin' put in advantage. Afterwards, in the final stretch of the crash, the Madrilenian was the one who pulled the T-shirt of Gerard Hammered, although this time there was not maximum penalty.

The one of Ciudad Real has caused an intense debate in LaLiga, since it is difficult to understand the change in his decisions. His first assessment was evidently correct, and is to stand out his courage to the hour of pitar a situation that hardly ever finish penalising to the defenders. It is thus that fans and experts do not understand reason complicated the life obviando another equal infringement of evident.

Carles Puyol, that does not lose detail of the Barcelona actuality, pronounced in social networks, and did it giving a touch of attention to the VAR. The system of videoarbitraje showed his effectiveness in the case Busquets-Llorente, since it reviewed it quickly and confirmed to the trencilla that his bet was correct. This was very placed and did not have obstacles that prevented him, by what there were few detours that give.

However, the doubt arrived in the brush Llorente-Hammered, in which not even it asked him that it reviewed the screen. At first sight already it appreciated a demolish clear to the central barcelonista, but the repetitions separated the few possible doubts. The ex player published an icon shrinking the shoulders, accompanied of the label "#VAR". Brief but significant criticism, since it complicates notably the fight by LaLiga.

LaLiga Demands an arbitration of greater level

Shelving tendencies or possible conspiracies, the conclusion of this unpleasant episode is that LaLiga needs an arbitration of greater level, so much on the lawn as in the VAR. The disparity of criteria is a headache for the clubs, that already argue between party and party and that, like the Barça, in occasions have to assimilate twists of guion in a same meeting. The reaction has to be urgent.
