Real Madrid remains the leader of the First Division with a twelve point advantage over their pursuers. Barcelona, Atlético and Sevilla are tied on 57 points. The azulgrana continue to climb positions after beating Lopetegui’s team, which, due to their particular goalscoring, is behind Barça and the rojiblancos.
One of the most controversial actions of the day occurred in Getafe-Mallorca. The VAR warned Mateu Lahoz of a hand from Russo inside the area, but in the replay it is not clear if it hits the left arm (which was attached to the body) or the right (which did occupy a space). The braid decided to point out the maximum penalty, but Rico avoided the goal. Celta-Real Madrid was also very controversial. González Fuertes pointed out three penalties in favor of the whites, the last one by Kevin Vázquez over Mendy, which was much discussed. “The last penalty is laughable,” said Nolito after the match. But in that game there was a VAR intervention and it was to annul Galhardo’s goal due to an offside interference by Aspas on Alaba. Without the VAR, Celta could have achieved a point.
In Los Cármenes, the VAR also conditioned the distribution of points with the warning to Hernández Hernández of a hand from Mario Suárez inside the area. Luis Milla converted the penalty and managed to leave a point in Granada. The technology also had work in San Mamés, a goal was conceded to Berenguer that had been badly annulled for offside.
