Butragueo: "We are supporters of the VAR because it is impossible for the referee to see everything. The VAR is making clear moves. It is disconcerting that it has not intervened in two very clear"
The ice. This is how veteran Real Madrid officials remember their worst arrival at Camp Nou where they lived. Wednesday was champagne and truffles compared to the classic November 29, 2010. They put the first one at the top of the rankings, well ahead of another unforgettable one: the piglet played in Figo (2002). That is, on the night of fury unleashed against the Portuguese, a flag remained in the memory of all present: because of you I killed my dog.
But if it's about tension, Jos Mourinho's first visit As a white coach, he takes his palm. The usual hyperventilation that Madrid generates here is the presence of the coach who had finished months earlier, ahead of Inter, with the dream of playing (and supposedly winning) a Champions League at Bernabu. An opportunity that was not repeated. Then on the way to the stadium, two camouflaged individuals with a motorcycle helmet stood in the middle of the road with a gas station bag in their hand. Pa, pa, pa … They looked like bursts of fire. And we don't know what it was, the witnesses say, impressed by the effect that simple ice cubes against the moons can have. Some players threw themselves on the floor in fright. The night started badly and ended up worse for Real Madrid, winners (5-0) on the grass.
The descent from the hotel couch was pleasant, thanks to the powerful pre-emptive cable that the police had prepared around zero kilometers from previous hours. The train of both teams traveled the short distance without any problem. During the day, those responsible for the white expedition were receiving reassuring law enforcement reports, where they assured that the arrival at the field will have no complications. Another issue will be during the match. Uncertainty planned throughout the day at the concentration hotel. Sergio Ramos, the white captain, heard precise indications about the action protocol in case of uncontrolled aggression on the lawn. Madrid has also kept an airport flight plan secret, with several alternative routes planned to reach the runway, due to the risk of finding roadblocks to Prat. The plane was ready before the game started.
Fortunately, the classic developed normally except for throwing yellow balls, after the break, and in an ethnic football already seen in recent years. Madrid sent in the beginning with authority, but without the advantage necessary to advance nor with arbitrary fortune. Hernndez Hernndez considered that a grip on Varane and a thigh stencil and in the same play (he has merit), they were not reason enough to score a penalty.
The owner of the VAR, De Burgos Bengoechea, thought the same. The bad white leadership with this couple was full of reasons very soon. At rest they left Valverde and Zidane angry, each for different things. The place, because of their bad image. And the visitor for letting out a first piece of dominance and harassment over Ter Stegen's goalkeeper. We showed personality, said Ramos, who lamented both penalties against his partner. At that moment, the smoke from the CDR burned the containers slipped into the stadium: at the break we saw that they were clean. The VAR should be placed to help and not so. Zinedine Zidane did not want to get into controversy, he preferred to maintain the attitude of his team. "It's not easy to play like this here, I'm happy with my players, even though we missed the goal."
The ever cautious Butragueo did not doubt this time to criticize the refereeing work, showing the club's anger. "We are supporters of the VAR because it is impossible for the referee to see everything. The VAR is ready to make clear moves." It is disconcerting that he did not intervene in two clear movements. When you see the images, it attracts the attention that has not entered, "he protests.
