Barcelona Intimated that Real Madrid have benefitted
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has questioned the VAR following events during Sunday’s match between Athletic Club and Real Madrid.
Los Blancos won the game thanks to a penalty awarded by VAR, with Athletic feeling hard done by after not getting a spot-kick of their own.
Although he didn’t mention the match at San Mames or Real Madrid specifically, Bartomeu referred to the controversial use of VAR in recent weeks.
«VAR isn’t at the level that everyone wanted,» he told Movistar.
«Post-lockdown, there have been lots of games that haven’t been even and where the same [team] has been favoured, and many teams have been unlucky.
«VAR has to help the referee.
«During the last few games, everyone has seen the images where the VAR hasn’t been used well.»
