Xavi questions fairness of officiating in Real Madrid’s win

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has expressed frustration with La Liga officiating following Real Madrid’s dramatic 3-2 comeback win over Almeria.

The match was marred by controversial VAR decisions that played a decisive role. Trailing 2-0 at halftime, Real Madrid received a contentious penalty, converting it to narrow the score.

Almeria thought they had extended their lead, but VAR intervened, disallowing the goal due to a perceived foul in the buildup.

Real Madrid capitalized on the swing in momentum, levelling the score in another contentious decision after a VAR review overturned the initial free-kick awarded to Almeria.

The match concluded in the 99th minute with Dani Carvajal securing the win for Real Madrid.

Xavi’s comments reflect broader concerns about VAR decisions influencing La Liga outcomes, raising questions about the consistency and impact of officiating decisions.

The controversy adds to the ongoing debate about the role of technology in football and its impact on the integrity of the game.
