Referee …. reacted in a passive way against the football rules when he missed to show the red card to the six times Ballon D’or winner who was engaged in a fight.
ESPN soccer was live to capture the event as it unfolded. Football fans all over the world marvel at the passiveness of the referee and wondered why he missed showing the red card to the Barca superstar.
Some of his fans have explained it to fault Carlos who tackled him roughly while his critics reminded him that any act of retaliation in football amounts to red card.
People has begun to wonder if referee, Jose Luis Gonzalez is a Messi fan to why he made Messi escape red card.
The game was filled with actions as Barca had more ball possession, recording 68% against Sevilla with 32%.
The game ended goal-less with an equal number of shots on target at 3 each. Meanwhile Barca had more shots on target at nine against six for Sevilla.
The toughness of the game could not be controlled easily even after the referee showed four yellow cards in the game. Meanwhile, Covid-19 outbreak continued making the stadium scanty with no fans.
Barca came close to winning the game severally without breaking the deadlock even though they played nine corner-kicks as against two played by Sevilla.
This game has put Barca in danger zone of losing the title this season if Real Madrid wins Real Sociedad at Reale Arena.
My question here is… Is there any justification for referee Juan to allow Messi escape red card?
