Two penalties for Cristiano Ronaldo

It was visible that Antoine Griezmann was in the offside situation. Unfortunately to Barca’s fans, the referee overturned his decision on penalty and said that it was an offside moment.
Koeman said that penalty should be given to Messi. At the same time, Koeman noted that he is not blaming anyone for the loss.
