Emilio Butragueno, Actual Madrid’s director of institutional relations, has questioned the integrity of referee Juan Martinez Munuera after he awarded Sevilla a penalty in a 2-2 draw on the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
After Actual Madrid had been initially awarded a penalty themselves, Eder Militao was then penalised for handball after a VAR assessment.
“We’re not having any luck with a majority of these incidents,” Butragueno mentioned afterwards.
“We have been in comparable conditions and, sadly, the choice went towards us once more as we speak.
“It is a completely decisive choice due to when it got here and what it meant – a penalty for Sevilla and no penalty for Actual Madrid.
“That call may be very influential and, in that sense, it leaves us with doubts.
“There have been very comparable incidents the place selections that theoretically ought to’ve gone in our favour had been totally different.
“It makes us really feel a bit uneasy.
“However [the referee] went to VAR and he made that call.
“Militao is not wanting on the ball, clearly.
“It isn’t going to fall to a Sevilla participant who’s going to shoot. The ball falls to Miguel [Gutierrez], who goes to clear it. It isn’t a goalscoring alternative.
“It is an important choice, which has an affect that might be decisive in LaLiga.”
