Real Madrid managed to overcome the 2-0 score against Valencia, but Referee Gil Manzano’s controversial decision in the last minute of the match created a new storm in Spanish football.

After the completion of the reduction, Bellingham headed the score to 3-2, but the referee stated that the goal was out of time. This caused a new storm when the English star received a red card for his protests.

Real Madrid remains top of the league, seven points ahead of Girona (2nd), which visits Mallorca (16th) on Sunday.

All eyes were on Vinicius and the Brazilian star did not disappoint. He scored two instinctive goals (45+5 and 76), which allowed him to surpass the goals of Hugo Duro (27) and Roman Yaremchuk (30). However, he also fought intensely with the stands.

He raised his right fist and addressed the stands after his first goal, and increased his gestures, including covering his ears with his hands, after scoring the second goal.

The match, which started with a magnificent minute of silence for the ten people who died in the terrible fire that destroyed a residential building in a neighborhood of Valencia on February 22, created a huge emotional charge.

Once launched, there were so many outstanding accounts and sparks flew quickly. Local captain Gayá and Brazilian Rodrygo began hostilities by exchanging blows.

Nothing happened in the game until almost half an hour into the game. Valencia then knew how to capitalize on Real Madrid’s lack of intensity and turn their overexcitement into goals.

Hugo Duro opened the scoring with a pure instinctive header after Fran Pérez’s mid-miss. Yaremchuk increased the difference with Dani Carvajal’s pass error to goalkeeper Andriy Lunin. On the verge of the first half, Vinicius completed the goal to close the gap.

The goalkeepers had happy moments in the second half. In the 54th minute, Jude Bellingham burst into the penalty area and after a hard dribble, his shot from close range was cleared out by local player Giorgi Mamardashvili. It was Lunin who saved the white team with a miraculous start against Diego López six minutes later.

Then came Vinicius’ equalizing goal with a header after Brahim’s cross. The end of the match was marred by the serious injury of Mouctar Diakhaby (86), who fell on Aurélien Tchouaméni. Players from both teams left on a stretcher as they showed their dismay at the Frenchman’s bad luck.

Bellingham’s action at the end of the match reignited the debate in Spain and was reminiscent of what happened in Colombia in the 2008-I League final between América and Boyacá Chicó in Cali, when referee Wílmar Roldán ended the first game in full attack. Action for the visitors, resulting in a goal from Anuar Guerrero.
