The meeting was not really controversial, although it did have some controversial decision on the part of the schoolboy. However, nothing eye-catching for the scoreboard. Jota Peleteiro left in the second half just before Barca’s French striker scored his team’s score.
The Culés asked Frenkie De Jong for a possible penalty after a clash in the area with a defender of Deportivo Alavés. Both players jumped and contacted on the air, but Hernandez Hernandez saw nothing punishable in the action and from the VAR they also did not correct his decision. The reality is that the play did not seem enough to signal penalty, although the culé association was very annoying on social media.
However, what they did not protest was an action in which Leo Messi had to be expelled after a lack of respect and total disrespect with the collegiate of the match, Hernández Hernández, who decided to look the other way so as not to face what might have been the expulsion of the Argentine star.
The FC Barcelona player did not make a good decision of the collegiate, to which he responded by throwing a ball at him. Leo took out his left-hander for a walk, the one who is not scoring goals this season, and about to hunt down Hernandez Hernandez in what was a really violent shot of the Barca player who, if hitting the referee, would certainly have done him a lot of damage, besides having been a horrendous image. An actor in the game beating the judge.
He was able to change the game.
The action came in the 39th minute of the match when the Azulgrana team was already losing 1-0 after Rioja’s goal and Neto’s serious failure. Koeman’s were going to countercurrent and you could tell in a rarefied environment. They saw close the third consecutive league defeat. Eventually, the culés ended up playing, although what they gave in in Mendizorroza was a draw.
However, Messi was able to finish the match, something he should not have done after this terrible improper action by a player of his size and class, but who is falling victim to poor individual performance and the doubts left by a team that does not finish taking off and that intersperses good matches like Turin with tremendous disappointments. It should be remembered that only 2 of the last 12 points have been added in LaLiga.
