A classic of Spanish football is to see the fans of the two greats, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, complain about arbitrations. Both see help towards the rival, especially when both are playing the league title.
This confrontation and crossing of accusations has worsened after the return of the competition, in which the white club has become leader of the classification. The VAR was decisive in the last meetings of Real Madrid, especially in that of the Real society in which he intervened in the two goals of Ramos (penalty) and Benzema, as well as in the annulled Januzaj. The words of Gerard Piqué previous ones did not help calm things down, much less the atmosphere caused by the four major sports newspapers, both in Madrid and two in Barcelona.
The referees are in the spotlight. The use of the VAR is in question, but not only by Barcelona and Real Madrid, but by almost all the teams in the competition. From Valencia, for example, already they take with humor the situation, although previously they did it much more seriously.
One of the big complaints from the Madrid and Barcelona fans, but also from the rest, is that their rival is looked at differently when it comes to calling them possible disciplinary mistakes.
The official LaLiga data comparator allows several conclusions to be drawn in this regard:
The Barcelona is the third team with the most red cards direct has seen this season of all LaLiga, five, tied with Celta and Osasuna. Ahead is Espanyol (seven) and Alavés (six). Of those five expulsions, two have been to Clement Lenglet and one to De Jong, Dembélé and Ronald Araújo each. Real Madrid has received four expulsions: Mendy, Bale, Modric and Odriozola, the latter obviously before leaving on loan to Bayern.
In yellow cards, Barcelona also wins Real Madrid, 71 vs 56, but not in Fouls committed: whites have been whistled 386 vs 331 to the blaugrana. Whereas in fouls received, the referees have whistled 417 for culés and 356 for meringues.
Piqué is the player with the most yellow cards He has seen this year, not only from Barcelona, but from LaLiga, although tied with Jonathan Silva (Leganés), Roberto Soldado (Granada CF) and Fernando (Seville). These four players have seen 12 yellow each. The Blaugrana central defender has committed 28 fouls, for which they have taken a card by 42.8%.
The Real Madrid footballer who has been booked the most times in this League with a card without expulsion has been Casemiro, with 10 yellow. The Brazilian midfielder is also the LaLiga player who more fouls he has committed, 77, more than double that Sergio Busquets, the blaugrana who leads this statistic in his team, with 35.
