Every time that the Real Madrid and the VAR are in the same prayer, is because the technology has benefited to the picture merengue or there is a debatable decision in favour. In the shameful goleada of Valencia to the ones of Zinedine Zidane by 4-1, the history was very distinct. This time, the videoarbitraje did not take edicts and reviewed all the played. It acted against of the madridistas, unlike as it did it during the past season and in the beginning of the present course.

The technology left to the Real Madrid in aprietos and without capacity of reaction. It showed that, when the VAR does not benefit them, there is not party for the merengues. In Mestalla, Karim Benzemá opened the marker in a party that the ones of Zidane had entirely controlled but, after the half hour, the history was totally different. When it earned the first penal in favour of the Valencians and repeated to recommendation of the VAR, the Madrid desmoronó completely.

In the first launching from the eleven metres, after a hand of Lucas Vázquez in the area, Thibaut Courtois cleared the launching of Carlos Soler, that went back to finish and Yunus Musah finished equalising the marker. There it went in the VAR to act. From you Brush them, they recommended him to Gil Manzano chequear the played because they had gone in two players to the area during the launching.

In this case, the VAR takes part because the forward of Valencia, Musah, went in to the area merengue before it finished to earn the penalti and annotated a goal. The rule says that if a player ingresa to the area before and mark, touches the balloon or has incidence in the played, has to repeat the launching. Few minutes afterwards, the Real Madrid saw the second decision against of the technology, this time to confirm a goal in own door of Raphael Varane.

The merengues could ask a previous fault in a played between Cheryshev and Asensio, but the action continued and the balloon was by the air, going in in the goal with Courtois in the floor and Varane falling. Before going up to the marker, the VAR reviewed the action and, sure enough, the ball had happened the line and was goal against of the defender merengue, the second of the season.

The penal defined the party

With the marker 2-1 for the venues, the videoarbitraje went back to take part in two opportunities more. In the beginning of the second part, a fault of Marcelo in the area on Maxi Gómez caused a new penalti for Valencia. Seven minutes later, the referee saw in the need to consult to the VAR to certify that Sergio Ramos had touched the balloon with the hand inside the area. Carlos Soler went back to define from the eleven metres and sank, definitively, to the Real Madrid.

In back statements to the party, the technician merengue, Zinedine Zidane, took responsibility by the defeat of his team and preferred not going in in controversy with the referee's decisions that sank to the Madrid. The French signalled that "I do not put me with the referees, are they those that arbitrate", and what reason has. The referee was hit and the merengues saw the consequences.
