There has been numerous opinions and comments about what happened at the Bernabéu, the latest being from a Money Heist actor.

Huge win, but bigger controversies

Los Blancos emerged victorious with a 3-2 win, but the post-match discussions were dominated by the controversies surrounding the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decisions.

Amidst the exhilarating gameplay, the VAR intervened on multiple occasions, significantly influencing the outcome of the match. Real Madrid was awarded a crucial penalty, and Brazilian winger Vinicius Junior’s equalizer was deemed valid by the technology.

However, the VAR also played a decisive role in disallowing an Almeria goal scored by Sergio Arribas, attributing it to a foul on midfielder Jude Bellingham. These contentious decisions have since ignited a firestorm of debate and discussion within the football community.

The aftermath of the game has been characterized by heated controversies, with fans, analysts, and even players expressing their opinions on the VAR’s impact. Questions have been raised about the consistency and accuracy of VAR decisions, fueling the ongoing debate surrounding the implementation of technology in football officiating.
