Twitter reacts as Barcelona robbed of clear goal in Real Betis draw

Barcelona missed the chance to go top of La Liga on Sunday after being held to a 1-1 draw by Real Betis, but they will be left furious with this decision.

Alex Alegria gave the hosts the lead in the second half, and Barca thought that they had found an equaliser through Andre Gomes.

Despite their protests, the goal wasn’t awarded and with no goal-line technology in Spain, there was no referral to determine whether or not it had crossed the line.

Replays showed that it did, and by some distance, which will leave the club incensed even though Luis Suarez was able to find a late equaliser to grab a share of the spoils.

The result leaves the Catalan giants a point behind Real Madrid, although their rivals have two games in hand and will look to make the most of this slip-up and bounce back from their own recent disappointments.

Nevertheless, this is surely not the last that we’ve heard about this incident, as Barca will be rightly aggrieved and ultimately, these two dropped points could come back to haunt them later in the season in what looks likely to be a tight title race.
