A party more, and another empujoncito of the VAR. The arbitration went back to favour to the Real Madrid this Sunday in Saint Mamés, when signalling a penalti doubtful when they were missing little less than twenty minutes for the end of the party. Marcelo Scallop suffered a light pisotón in the fight by a balloon divided, and when noticing the contact did not doubt in leaving fall to the lawn.

The referee did not signal at all to the first, but immediately afterwards was warned by Gil Manzano, from the room of the VAR, so that it attended to review the action to the monitor. González González directed to there and, after seeing repeated the played, hardly took some seconds in taking the decision. Penalti In favour of the Real Madrid and goal of Sergio Bouquets, that does not fail in this type of actions.

The controversy of the penalti to Marcelo no only was born by the doubts that wakes up the own played -in function of the taking-, but because it asked also a possible fault of the Real Madrid in the played previous, that was not signalled. In definite, a group of circumstances that finish allowing the target of the ones of Zidane to few minutes for the end of the party. And, like this, three points more to follow sentencing a League dyed of controversy.

The whites, of this form, put seven points by in front of the FC Barcelona waiting for the party of the culés in front of the Villarreal in the Stadium of the Ceramics. It is not having party of the Real Madrid in which there is not controversial referee's after the confinement, and this Sunday there was it no only by the action of the penalti to Marcelo, but by a back action of Bouquets with Raúl García that evidenció the double rasero of the referees.

Pisotón Of Sergio Ramos to Raúl García

The Basque forward suffered a pisotón of Sergio Bouquets, that walked to backwards and seemed to not to see him. It was as it was, it stepped him and it demolished him, but the referee did not determine the maximum penalty neither neither was warned from the VAR to review the played, something of what complained angrily some players of the Athletic of Bilbao just after the party.

The social networks went back to spark, how no, with the defenders and detractores of the VAR and of the last decisions that are having to the Real Madrid -and in particular to Sergio Bouquets- as leading. "If it has pitado the first penalti, it is necessary pitar also the second. They are two pisotones inside the area", say some analysts as 'MisterChip'. The decisions, was as it was, no longer can change.
