Author of a mad comeback of three goals against Atlético de Madrid this Wednesday in La Liga (3-3), Espanyol Barcelona still has a bitter taste from this meeting. Indeed, the Catalan club conceded a goal from Antoine Griezmann just before the break, the validity of which still arouses many controversies in Spain.
Without goal-line technology, La Liga was unable to prove that the ball had indeed crossed the line on this 14th achievement by the Frenchman in La Liga. However, the referee of the meeting, Mario Melero López, made the decision to award the goal to Colchoneros after viewing the VAR. This Thursday, Espanyol Barcelona, which is fighting for its survival in La Liga, published a press release denouncing “serious negligence on the part of the refereeing staff and, in particular, on the part of the VAR referees appointed by the RFEF”and emphasizing the absence of images proving that the ball was “entered or not, in its entirety”.
