FC Barcelona have lost the decisive "el clásico" in La Liga yesterday. Real Madrid managed to defeat the Catalans by 2-1 in Camp Nou. The match was intense, as always, but fair for 90 minutes. Referee Alberto Undiano Mallenco, who was assisted by Jesús Calvo Guadamuro, Fermin Martínez Ibáñez and Julio Leo Ollo, showed a good performance with only smaller weaknesses. A detailed report on that will follow at the appropiate time.
When Sami Khedira scored the first goal in the 17th minute, one could have got a very quick impression: "was not that offside?!". No it was not, as the following screens show.
|Corner kick for Real (di María)..|
|Pepe (the white Real player on the left) gets the ball as header|
|Valdés cannot hold the ball...|
|Khedira hence scores...|
|The goal is given, 0-1 for Real Madrid!|
Now the important screenshot..
|Busquets' foot (21), which is in the air, was on level with Khedira, who scored!|
Therefore a correct and excellently seen goal. Apart from this, it has to be mentioned that both assistant referees made no mistake in more than ten important and close offside situations. Excellent performance.
