Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu believes Laliga referees has favored league leaders Real Madrid, since the restart of the laliga last month.
Real Madrid were two points behind Barca when the competition resumed in mid-June, but are now four points ahead of Barcelona at the top of the table with four round of matches remaining.
Bartomeu told Movistar+ on Sunday night.“I watched up until the end of the second half(of Real Madrid win against Athletic Bilbao)
It was another victory for Madrid and I will repeat the message: it leaves a bad taste for me because it is the best league in the world and VAR is not up to standard. That is impacting on some results.
It seems to always favour one team. Even though some results of ours that have not been good, VAR has not been equitable and there are teams that have been hurt.”
Bartomeu also said that he had taken up the matter with the Spanish Football Federation.
“We have spoken to the RFEF and VAR should help the referee,” he said. “We’ve all seen a lot of images and plays where it hasn’t been equitable.”
Real Madrid winning goal came after the referee saw the VAR field monitor to impose a 73rd minute penalty sent by Sergio Ramos, while Athletic Bilbao seemed unlucky not to receive a late kick themselves.
