Barcelona Are Unhappy With The Referee Appointed To The ‘Clasico’

Published

‘AS¡ says that Barcelona are upset about the referee appointed to the ‘Clasico’, Juan Martinez Munuera. This will be his first ‘Clasico’, but Barcelona have got bad memories of the 38 year-old.

The Spanish referees’ committee (CTA) appointed Juan Martinez Munuera to the ‘Clasico’ this Saturday at the Camp Nou. A decision which, according to ‘AS’, has now gone down well with Barca because of previous matches involving the referee.

And despite the fact it will be his first Barca v Real Madrid, Martinez Munuera has did a Barca match in the Spanish Super Cup in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). Barca were very upset by some of the referee’s decisions.

The Catalans protested Messi’s goal against Atletico Madrid which was disallowed for handball. Then post COVID-19, he allowed Benzema’s goal at Real Sociedad to stand when the Basques claimed a handball.

Barcelona understand that the VAR has not been used the same way with everybody. In addition, Barcelona complained about Martinez Munuera’s performances in the Copa del Rey game versus Athletic Bilbao.

That day, there was controversy when Barca felt they should have got a penalty after a foul by Ander Capa on Frenkie de Jong at 0-0. A Sergio Busquets own goal saw them lose 1-0.
