The FC Barcelona and the Real Madrid contested a friendly in The Vegas that left clear that, further of not having points at stake, a Classical always plays with the maximum of intensity. In the minute 42, a hard fault of Jordi Alba to Vinícius derived in a conato of tángana that, although it did not happen to greater, evidenció the latent rivalry on the verdand. The action finished with a yellow for Alba and another for Sergio Busquets, although well it could have more admonished.

In the played previous, the players of the Barça demanded an infringement on Pedri that the main referee, the American Mark Allatin, omitted to sanction. The Madrid orquestó one against led by Vinícius and, in front of the danger that represented the action, Jordi Alba opted for going down to the Brazilian in the frontal of the area. Immediately, Rodrygo Goes hurled on the players blaugranas and pushed to Busquets, which desató the 'rifirrafe' between players of both teams.

'Busi', few times wrapped in this type of conflicts, saw very annoying by the reaction of Rodrygo, the one who reached him to strike the breast. However, the captain blaugrana finished calming the spirits in a talk with Vinícius, while Ronald Araújo and Antonio Rüdiger enfrascaban in a face to face that almost finishes carrying them to the hands. The German increpó to Gavi and the central Uruguayan went out in his defence, doing more parejo the duel.

The talk between 'Busi' and 'Vini' avoided a greater conflict and, after the end of the first part, both groups left to the changing room without more clashes. In the second part, Allatin admonished to Franck Kessié and Lucas Vásquez by infringements that did not happen to greater. The another admonished of the commitment was Andreas Christentensen in the minute 34 by a hard infringement against Eden Hazard.

The penalti no sanctioned to Odriozola

In the straight final of the Classical, an action could turn into the big controversial of the night, of not being by the final result. To 15 minutes of the end, Álex Balde hanged a centre that hit in the right hand of Álvaro Odriozola. The position of the hand of the lateral 'merengue' was clearly anti natural, but neither Allatin neither the judge of line considered the action like hand penalti. Well it was in pre-season or in official parties, again remained of self-evident that, to the Madrid, no any one dares to sanction him a maximum penalty against.
