It’s infuriating when a pundit or manager will moan about a penalty decision by saying “but there was contact”, because that’s not what the rule is.
There’s plenty of contact between Dani Carvajal here, but that’s mainly because he throws his leg at the Getafe defender in search of it:
Real Madrid have struggled to create chances all night against Getafe…BUT Sergio Ramos has made it 1-0 from the penalty spot late on ?

Barcelona and Real Madrid have been making accusations all season about VAR being biased in favour of the other, and this was a huge moment in the title race.
It’s allowed Real to go four points clear at the top, and these Barcelona fans are not happy about it at all:
Well its confirmed VAR and Real Madrid have won La Liga

Barcelona has been sloppy, but VAR added to real Madrid’s unbeaten run
