Barcelona dropped two points at Anoeta against Real Sociedad today mostly due to referee’s mistakes for not giving the Catalans the penalty in the dying seconds.

The referee overshadowed a great match today between Barcelona and Sociedad.

He handed a penalty for La Real when Sergio Busquets pulled the opponent’s shirt in the first half.

However, when Sociedad’s defender pulled Gerard Pique’s shirt in the injury time, the referee didn’t blow the whistle.

This led Bartomeu to make a decision to send the league a letter.

It’s directed at Rubiales to ask why the referees didn’t use VAR, according to Alfredo Martinez.

Whatever the case may be, Barcelona will face off with Real Madrid on Wednesday. Hopefully, it goes without suspicious referee decisions like today.
