Liga: Controversy in Spain after Camavinga’s poor match that injured Martial

Anthony Martial was injured during Real Madrid’s win over Seville (2-3) on Sunday. The Frenchman, on loan from Manchester United, was awkwardly dealt with by his compatriot Eduardo Camavinga, who was not sanctioned for an action that caused controversy beyond the Pyrenees.

The clash at the top of La Liga between Sevilla FC and Real Madrid, won by the Madrid men and completed by a decisive goal from the inevitable Karim Benzema (2-3, day 32), was much talked about on Sunday evening. Spain. Because Real have taken an almost certain lead at the top of the championship, provisionally fifteen points ahead of Barca (which have two matches less on the clock).

Because, too, Vinicius was denied a goal in the 76th minute following an arbitration decision, confirmed after watching the video, most surprising of all – for an alleged handball, when the Brazilian apparently hit his chest. The ball was controlled. Because, in the end, Eduardo Camavinga was at the core of a new surprise decision from Spanish referee Guillermo Cuadra Fernández, after a damaging tackle in passing Anthony Martial to his teammate in France.

Marshal Wounded…and Approved

A very dangerous tackle in the 39th minute of the match, with both feet and behind on the French winger from Sevilla. Camavinga, who had already warned of yellow in the 31st, did not receive a new card. Still worthy considering his defensive gesture. Marshal, he stayed on the ground for some time, before giving way to Rafa Mir. Worse, while the officer did not blow the errant whistle, the latter even delivered a yellow to marshal to strike the ground in irritation from a water bottle.

In comments reported by Sport that spoke of a “scandal”, Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti did not wish to comment on the action before the media, believing that his player had “touched the ball”. Seville’s Julene Lopetegui told him that Camavinga’s mistake was “a second clear yellow card”.

“It was a pale yellow and the only person who didn’t see it was the referee”

“It was 2-0 (at the time in the game) and they had to put a man down. The game would have been different. It was a clear yellow and the only person who didn’t see it was the referee bad luck. They should have started the second half at ten ,” he insisted on the website of the Sevillian club. “Camavinga’s eviction is too obvious,” also complained Sevillian midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

On loan from Manchester United since this winter, Anthony Martial made his La Liga debut for the seventh time this season. With Sevilla, the tricolor international (30 matches, 2 goals), who started on top on Sunday evening, has scored only once in the Europa League since January. His club is yet to reveal the nature of his injury.
