It did not doubt it Mateu Lahoz to the hour of not signalling penalti in one of the played more controversies of the party, this Saturday, during the course of the Athletic -Barcelona of League Santander 2017-18 in Wanda Metropolitan. It ran the minute 44 when, with 1-0 in the marker in favour of the group trained by the 'Cholo' Simeone, Leo Messi achieved to confine in the area of Jan Oblak.
Here it was demolished by Gabi Fernández, captain of the Athletic of Madrid, that did not touch balloon and however yes contacted with the leg of the Argentinian star of the FC Barcelona, demolishing him in the interior of the rival area. The Valencian referee, Mateu Lahoz, left to follow the game in spite of the airadas protests of Leo Messi, perfectly conscious that they had done him penalti.
Very few repetitions of the played showed in the transmission of 'Movistar Partidazo', whereas the commentators neither wetted too much in this regard. The question is that, in the case that Mateu Lahoz there was pitado the clear penalti, Gabi Fernández could have seen the second yellow card and would have left expelled, since in the minute 14 had seen the first cardboard by an ugly entrance also on Leo Messi, although in this occasion was in the centre of the field.
Hurtful decision of the referee for the Barça
The party went to the rest and the FC Barcelona remained without a very clear opportunity for recortar distances and empatar the marker in Wanda Metropolitan, to rebosar of public rojiblanco and an authentic boiler for the culés.
There was not luck, as in this occasion Mateu Lahoz no pitó the penalti. It fits to say, this yes, that the FC Barcelona did not generate a lot of occasions more than goal and did not transmit feeling of security in the first-half. It did not deserve the tie, of this there is not doubt. But it could have it had in his hands.
