Barcelona narrowly won 1: 0 against Real Valladolid. There was a moment, Lionel Messi felt that he wanted the referee to chase him. Why’s that?
Barcelona entertained Real Valladolid at the Camp Nou, on Tuesday (6/4/2021) early in the morning, VIB, in the Spanish league. Blaugrana claimed to be the more dominant force in the game, and the statistics agreed with them – possession being 25 percent.
Despite that, Valladolid was strong enough to survive and also threatened several times. Then the disaster hit the guests in the 79th minute when Oscar Plano was sent off due to a foul on Ousmane Dembele.
Barcelona takes advantage of the number of players in the remaining time. As a result, they managed to break into Valladolid’s goal in the 90th minute thanks to Dembele’s goal, as well as to end the match with a close 1-0 victory.
Victory is so significant. Because, Barcelona managed to reduce the distance from Atletico Madrid at the top of the temporary placement of the Spanish league.
Barcelona is in second place with 65 points. Only one point differs from Athletic.
Barcelona also continues the brilliant trend. The last five matches could be erased with a victory.
In the match against Real Valladolid, quoted from brand Lionel Messi once admitted that he was almost mistreated by Judge Santiago Jaime Latre. Because, Messi wants to be awarded a yellow card!
“The referee wanted to give me a yellow card, that’s unbelievable,” said Messi, who was caught in front of the camera at half time.

Lionel Messi is really in the shadow of the penalty for accumulating tickets. If he receives a yellow card in this match, Messi will surely miss the next match, which on Sunday (11/4) in the morning VIB will face Real Madrid.
Fortunately, Messi did not get the card. So he can certainly participate in the El Clasico event.
