There’s been a lot of talk in recent months about VAR giving Real Madrid some very generous penalties, so it’s not a surprise anymore when Real get a spot kick if they’re starting to struggle.
This is an interesting decision because it’s come at the Nou Camp so the officials know a big deal will be made of this if they get it wrong, and there’s two ways of looking at it.
Lenglet does have a hold of Sergio Ramos’ shirt at one point so he always runs the risk of this happening, but Ramos completely exaggerates the contact and it looks very soft indeed:
Sergio Ramos gives Madrid a 2-1 lead from the penalty spot ?
Should he have had the penalty for this pull on his jersey in the first place, though? ?
