La Liga Santander Xavi Criticize La Liga For Not Using Goal Line Technology

Coach Xavi Hernandez of Barcelona attacked the officiating in La Liga, which does not have goal-line technology, after a goal by Lamine Yamal was disallowed by VAR in Barcelona’s 3-2 loss at Real Madrid.

After goals from Andreas Christensen and Fermin Lopez had put Barcelona ahead on Sunday, Real Madrid responded twice through goals from Vinicius Jr. and Lucas Vazquez.

After appearing to cross the line before Real goalie Andrey Lunin cleared it, Yamal’s shot in the 28th minute was investigated by VAR for a number of minutes.

Barca was given a corner by VAR after the goal was disallowed. In the ninetieth minute, Jude Bellingham scored the game-winning goal, giving Real Madrid their fourth straight victory over the Catalan team.

With six games left, it will be challenging for second-place Barcelona to overcome an 11-point gap.

“We can’t control them. These are refereeing actions.

“I think the team is doing very well, we competed very well, we were better than Real on their own pitch and I think we deserved the three points in every way,” Xavi told reporters.

My feeling today is one of maximum injustice. Goes without saying, everyone saw it,” he added.

My feeling is that today’s match was not fair.”

The only top five European league without goal-line technology is LaLiga.

Chief Javier Tebas answered on X, sharing multiple reports of previous incidents where the technology was found to be erroneous, responding with a “no comment” after Barcelona fans questioned LaLiga for lacking the technology.

On April 29, Barcelona, who were eliminated from the Champions League the previous week, will play Valencia in La Liga.
