Oscar Plano’s red card against Barcelona on Monday was just one of the controversial decisions made by Santiago Jaime Latre on the night.
The Real Valladolid player was shown a straight red card in the 79th minute, with the Pucela still holding their hosts at 0-0, having fouled Ousmane Dembele.
“The referee was very harsh with Real Valladolid‘s player for the foul on Dembele,” refereeing expert Juan Andujar Oliver told Radio MARCA.
“It’s not a red card, he takes him down low but not violently.”
To rub salt in the wounds of Real Valladolid fans, Andujar Oliver also believes that the 90th minute goal shouldn’t have stood.
“It should have been ruled out,” the expert said.
“Because 10 seconds earlier there was a foul from Jordi Alba on Roque Mesa to win the ball back.”
