Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu have suggested that Madrid, who are four points away from the Catalan grandees at the top of LaLiga, win from the favorable decisions of the referees.

The Los Blancos get more penalties than other Spanish clubs

Real Madrid gets more penalties than other teams in Spain because they are more often in the attack, says Diego Simeone. Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu have suggested that Madrid. Who are four points away from the Catalan grandees at the top of LaLiga. Win from the favorable decisions of the referees. Real’s boss Zizou said has was “tired” of hearing such opinions after his side beat Athletic Bilbao 1-0 on Sunday. The second consecutive game they won with the courtesy of a Sergio Ramos penalty, which was awarded after the VAR review, spotted Dani Garcia’s trip on Marcelo. Iker Muniain criticized officials after the match because Athletic did not receive a direct hit for Ramos, who appeared to step on Raul Garcia’s foot off the ball or another incident involving the captain of Madrid Dani Garcia.

The referees are people too who can be wrong

Madrid got nine penalties in LaLiga this season – only Athletic and Real Mallorca earned ten each – and Simeone considers it natural for the team that plays on the front foot to receive such decisions. Previously, we did not have the opportunity to see some of the things that we now see. The referees are people who can be wrong too, the Atlético Madrid boss said at a press conference. “It is fairer. If they give you more fines, it is because you are in the opposition zone more. If they attack more like Real Madrid, then you’re there longer. It’s hard to see what’s happening in the game’s speed, but now the other referee sees it calmly on television—people, too, from their homes.

The VAR could harm or help you

“Then there is the person who decides which is the VAR. It can harm you or help you, but now we are all clear if it’s a penalty. Atletico faces Celta Vigo on Tuesday and will be without the talisman midfielder Joao Felix due to an ankle injury. Felix scored eight goals and assisted three in 34 matches in all competitions since joining Atletico from Benfica for a club-record amount of €126 million (£114 million/$143 million) last year. Simeone intends to remain patient with the 20-year-old Portugal international when he is again available for action. I’m not surprised at anything that’s happening to him, “said the Argentine manager.

“He must be patient and not disconnect. Anger in him because of what he wants to show, because of his qualities, sometimes costs him. Few players at 20 or 21 are a complete article. He has undeniable talent. He is a humble, respectful boy who gets along with everyone.”
