Clasico against Real Madrid: Barca criticizes La Liga for lack of goal line technology

As of: April 22, 2024 10:34 a.m

FC Barcelona players and coaches have sharply criticized the Spanish league after the Clasico defeat at Real Madrid. The reason for this was the lack of goal line technology.

The Catalans found themselves deprived of a goal. “It’s shameful for football, I’m at a loss for words,” said national goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen after the 3-2 defeat: “There is so much money in this world and there is no money for what is most important .”

Ball supposedly behind the line

When the score was 1-1, Real goalkeeper Andrij Lunin may have only cleared a corner kick from Lamine Yamal that was taken directly at the goal from behind the line. Since there is no goal line technology in Spain, unlike the other top European leagues, the video referee had to resolve the situation. However, the television images did not provide any clear information about the scene, which is why the score remained 1-1.

Xavi: “It’s a shame”

“It’s a shame,” said Barca coach Xavi: “If we want to be the best league in the world, we have to develop in that sense, you have to use the technology.” La Liga President Javier Tebas reacted the same evening and shared screenshots of press articles on “X” that deal with incorrect decisions on goal line techniques in Germany, England and France. He wrote: “No comment.”

Barca later took a 2-1 lead, but after Lucas Vazquez’s equalizer, Jude Bellingham decided the game in stoppage time in favor of the Madrilenians, who lead the table with eleven points ahead of their arch-rivals six games before the end of the season.
