Barcelona’s appeal denied: Referees committee refuses to provide VAR footage

FC Barcelona’s official complaint regarding the controversial VAR decision in their recent Clásico loss against Real Madrid has been met with a firm rejection from the Spanish Refereeing Committee (CTA).

The Blaugrana, still reeling from their elimination from the Champions League and facing an uphill battle in La Liga, had requested access to the VAR footage and audio recordings related to Lamine Yamal’s disallowed goal. However, the CTA has categorically denied their request, stating that “we do not consider providing any images” to Barcelona.

This decision has unsurprisingly drawn further criticism from Barcelona president Joan Laporta, who remains adamant about pursuing every possible avenue to seek a replay of the match. However, the CTA’s stance is unlikely to budge, and Real Madrid, for their part, has no desire to rekindle the controversy that has overshadowed their hard-fought victory.

As Barcelona’s title hopes fade, the VAR decision at the Santiago Bernabéu is set to remain a contentious talking point, highlighting the challenges and complexities of technology in modern football. While the Blaugrana may continue to exhaust their options, the CTA’s refusal to provide the requested footage effectively closes the door on a potential replay, leaving the result of the Clásico to stand.
