The VAR and the referee's performances come under scrutiny since it gave beginning LaLiga Santander 2019-20, but few thought that this Sunday could generate so much controversy with it sucedido in the Osasuna-Real Madrid and the Betis-Barça. Of course also there was controversy with some decisions in other parties of the day, but the most flagrant errors gave in the parties of the two 'big'.

Said referee's errors -if it can them call like this-, joined to the passivity of the VAR when it would have to have acted, put in entredicho the good utilisation of this type of tool in the Spanish football, where seems that it does not finish to like to all the world had to, as we say, to his bad use in determinate moments of the parties.

THE POLL To which club you think that the referees are benefiting more in LaLiga?

From 'FCBN' have wanted to ask to our readers if they think that the VAR is benefiting more to the FC Barcelona or to the Real Madrid in what it goes of season, or if they think that it makes a mistake by the same for both teams.

Neither it signalled the referee a very clear fault to Messi in the centre of the field during the first minutes of the meeting. A minute afterwards, the Real Betis marked the first goal of the party thanks to a penalti caused by hands of Lenglet. If this fault had signalled , therefore, is likely that the Barcelona had not received the first goal of form so early.

Along the last months from the RFEF and the Technical Committee of Referees have said us constantly that the VAR is to help, and that with the step of the time will implement his effectiveness to avoid that they produce referee's injustices. This, clear is, depends on who was behind the tool. Because, for now, it can not say that the controversial have left to surround to the arbitration in the Spanish football.
