Barcelona was denied a goal against Valencia on Sunday. The visitors felt outdone by the referee determination not to award them a goal after Neto spilled Messi’s shot which crosses the line and a goal was not given to the Blaugrana.
With VAR and goal-line technology both unavailable in Spain’s top-flight until next season, the goal was never awarded despite protest from the players.
Barcelona coach Valverde did complain about the goal that was not awarded to them in their post-match remarks, Luis Suarez could be not taken it lightly with the linesman as he was guilty of a foul-mouthed rant at the linesman for not awarding the goal.
According to Spanish publication AS, the Uruguayan talisman screamed “You are a [s***ter], dwarf s***” at the official for his failure to see that the ball crossed over the line. It remains unclear whether the 30-year-old will be punished for his rant.
Lionel Messi was clearly upset but chose his words while complaining to the match official: “You are wrong, now you are going to see it.”
The draw means that Barcelona’s lead over Valencia with four points, and eight points to Atletico and Real Madrid.
