The first half between Real Madrid and Real Sociedad was not without controversy. After an even start at the Di Stefano stadium, the visitors worked a good move down the left.
The debate is whether Casemiro brought down Monreal. There is definitely contact, but the debate is to who initiated it. The referee gave an offside against Oyarzabal.
However, replays show that he was definitely not offside. Then, Sociedad claim that Casemiro fouled Monreal.
The referee Jesus Gil Manzano, was ordered to play on by the VAR so he did obviously not think it was a penalty. It certainly caused debate and will be one for the talk shows afterwards.
