Laporta calls for clarity in football’s biggest clash

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has voiced his dissatisfaction with the utilization of VAR in Sunday’s El Clasico against Real Madrid, urging the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to consider a replay if conclusive evidence confirms Lamine Yamal’s disallowed goal should have stood.

Addressing the controversial decision, Laporta emphasized the need for VAR to mitigate errors that could lead to unjust outcomes, despite his reservations about the system’s impact on football’s spontaneity.

He underscored the inconsistency in VAR application, stressing its tendency to generate confusion and yield contradictory outcomes based on specific matches and teams.

The match saw Real Madrid twice equalize through goals from Vinicius Jr and Lucas Vazquez, following leads by Barcelona’s Andreas Christensen and Fermin Lopez.

Real clinched victory with a late winner from Jude Bellingham, extending their winning streak against Barcelona to four matches.
