The fight for the title and for Europe tightens again. Real Madrid were unable to go from a goalless draw against Villarreal and only added one point, while Sevilla, their closest rival, beat Elche. Lopetegui’s men are four points behind the Whites. Betis, third, does not fail. Barcelona manages to stay fourth by saving a point on their visit to Espanyol. Atlético is fifth after beating Getafe.
Double intervention of the VAR in penalties by hand in the 24th day of the First Division. In the Metropolitan he did it in a factual action: De Burgos had called a foul for Lemar’s hand, but Las Rozas warned that the offense was committed inside the area and ended up signaling the maximum penalty. Ünal did not forgive from eleven meters. The other hand was pitted in Mendizorroza. On that occasion, they did have to go to the monitor for a hand from Jason in an action by Bryan Gil. Cordero Vega ended up pointing it out and Guedes scored. There was a third intervention, but factual. It was in the Catalan derby, a Gavi goal being annulled for Frenkie de Jong’s offside. Without this correction, Barcelona would have taken all three points.
The VAR did not enter, but it was claimed at La Cerámica: Real Madrid requested a penalty for Albiol hitting Vinicius with his arm and Villarreal for two red actions. One for Asensio and another for Carvajal, the latter action being likely to be a penalty.
