Madrid should have had a penalty shot before the first quarter of an hour of their match against Levante. In minute 12, Karim Benzema fell in the area shot down by Son, in an unfortunate move for the Granota defender, who was slipping. Neither Cordero Vega signaled the maximum penalty nor Iglesias Villanueva urged him from the Las Rozas VOR room to go to the monitor to review the play.
“For me it’s a clear penalty. The Levante player goes to the ground and raises his left leg knocking down the Madrid player”explains Iturralde González, referee for AS and the Sports Carousel of the BE. “Let’s remember that the intention does not exist in this type of action. It is a reckless move”adds the former international referee.
