Gareth Bale did not have his night again and his game could have ended early if the referee gets to see a ticket that could cost him the red one. The Welshman entered from behind without the possibility of reaching the ball, but only saw yellow
The Real Madrid could not happen of the tie to two against the Celtic of Vigo this past Sunday at night in Santiago Bernabéu. The whites were losing quite time, but in the second part attained to trace back the so much initial of Smólov, that advanced to the celtiñas. Toni Kroos and Sergi Bouquets, of penalti, gave him the turn to the marker, but the whites trusted and left empatar to fault of little more than five minutes for the end.
Santi Mina equalised the crash in front of the passivity of the defence merengue, that in this occasion was all the contrary to inexpugnable. The ones of Zinedine Zidane tried to win desperately, but could not against the wall that planted the Galicians in Madrid. At the end, it remained in the marker a tie that approaches to the FC Barcelona to the leadership of LaLiga only a pair of weeks before the big Classical of the Bernabéu.
The crash, as almost always, also had controversial and left several played that it would be necessary to analyse. The one who more protested the Celtic, by on even of the absurd penalti of Rubén White on Eden Hazard, went a very hard entrance of Gareth Bleat that the referee decided saldar alone with yellow. The Welsh inexplicably went in by behind without possibility to steal the balloon and could do him a lot of damage to a Rafina that hurt during more than a mimuto.
With the regulation in hand, the extreme of the Madrid had to see the red card, since it is too aggressive and does not have any option to play the ball. It was the minute 71 of meeting and the madridistas still won 2-1 when the British deserved to be punished with the expulsion. It is not the first time that the ex of the Tottenham does gives a patada of this style, since it does some years did it with Samuel Umtiti and has repeated it in other occasions.
The VAR did not warn to the referee of the crash, Alberola Rojas, that preferred to leave the sanction in only a yellow that left him in the field. The players of the Celtic of Vigo protested a lot this decision and even complained after the party. Who know what had happened if it Bleat goes to the street to fault of more than 20 minutes for the end. What is sure is that the Madrid went back to finish with 11, but deserved finish by second consecutive day with 10.
2ª entrance followed of red after the one of Bouquets
It is necessary to remember that it does a week was Sergio Bouquets the one who could have gone to the street after another reckless entrance to Rubén García in the Osasuna-Madrid. The sevillano carried in this occasion the ball, but dragged in the floor by the inertia with the swearwords by in front and could have him done a lot of damage to the Valencian. The referee did not see at all and from the VAR neither, something that outraged to many after the party and that caused that there was a lot of controversy.
