Barcelona Coach Xavi criticises the El Clasico loss as “maximum injustice

Tensions were high during a heated match between fierce rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona because of a disallowed goal that caused debate and infuriated Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez about the officiating in LaLiga, a league that notably lacks goal-line technology.

After Andreas Christensen and Fermin Lopez had given Barcelona the lead on Sunday, goals from Vinicius Jr. and Lucas Vazquez of Real Madrid tied the game again.

The crucial moment occurred when Real Madrid’s custodian Andrey Lunin cleared Lamine Yamal’s effort in the 28th minute, which appeared to have crossed the line. After a protracted review, VAR intervened, disallowing the goal and giving Barcelona a corner.

Barcelona persevered in the face of the loss, but Jude Bellingham’s late goal in the 91st minute provided the game-winning blow and ensured Real Madrid’s fourth straight triumph over their Catalan rivals. With just six games left and an 11-point deficit, Barcelona’s chances of winning the championship were all but gone.
