This is the First Division classification and this is how it would be without the VAR: matchday 17

The 17th day of LaLiga Santander ends, in the absence of the postponed Betis-Barcelona (February 1 at 9:00 p.m.) and Real Madrid-Valencia (February 2 at 9:00 p.m.), with Cádiz, Sevilla and Elche in decline . From Elche and Cádiz they tied at one and shared the points when both needed victory to try to escape from the bottom of the table. Real Sociedad took the Basque derby against Athletic and established itself in Champions League positions. The people from San Sebastian are ahead of Atlético, who stumbled again (against Almería) and is left with 28 points in fourth place, tied with Villarreal (5th). Betis, who has a game pending, occupies the Conference position.


The VAR was the protagonist in three games, but only acted in one. In Zorrilla he entered a hand from Monchu. He warned of the infraction and the referee awarded a penalty that Masip would save Isi. In the other game that this tool was also discussed was in the Basque derby, but rather because of its non-intervention. Athletic claimed that they had rectified the decision to award Yeray’s penalty on Kubo. The braid signaled the maximum and red penalty for the rojiblanco footballer. The contact was light and insufficient. A ‘penalty’ That they could have corrected from the VAR but that did not happen. By last, In Cádiz-Elche, a clear offside was claimed in the play in which Ponce achieved the tie, but the VAR did not appear… As Sergio González acknowledged after the game, Del Cerro Grande would have apologized for the mistake .
