Xavi’s team did not play a good game. But they felt very harmed by the referee’s decisions Slavko Vincic and the VAR and values raising a protest to the federative body.
You cqn add the two serious errors in the interpretation of handballs in the areato the incident in Munich, when Davis brought down Dembele. The aggravating circumstance, that the same referee in charge of reviewing the plays in the image room Pol Van Boekel was in both games. If they finally decide to complain, Barça will send the images of the two plays, as well as others that show a hard tackle on Busquets that deserved a red card.
The arbitration clearly harmed the Catalans. The referee disallowed a goal pedri by previous hanball byf Ansu Fati after a goalie clearance Onana that brushed against his hands and were totally involuntary. Instead, the criteria of the hands changed inexplicably in the final minutes. With Barca overwhelmed and in a hurry, came the second arbitration controversy. Neither the referee nor the VAR saw clear hands from Dumfries inside the area when trying to clear a ball. The transformation of the maximum penalty could have given the tie
Xavi ended up desperate and sent a forceful message demanding that the arbitration group also give explanations for the decisions. “I am outraged. They tell us that if there is a hand but another teammate scores, it is a legal goal.” “we do not understand anything” and “it is an injustice.” the coach said, among others.
