'So far out of his depth he was drowning' - The referee at the centre of a Clasico storm

Alberto Undiano Mallenco has never been far from controversy and is not a popular choice with Barcelona for Tuesday night's Copa del Rey semi-final second leg at Camp Nou

The story is too old to be commented.

i thought this ref had a great game considering classicos of the past. i think all the officials had an awesome match <linesman and 4th official>. zero mistakes according to me. every offside and foul was given to the respective teams.

i mean after the match even the commentators and match analysts agreed that all the decisions given were the correct ones.

i suppose some barca fans think diving into a defender player and going down is a foul. another foul is when players dive when they not even touched <cesc, im looking at you>.

the one incident i can think of that the ref was at fault was when he unintentionally blocked off messi but he was standing still. not like he made an intentional attempt to run 5 steps to block him off. and it was out of the box as well so its not like he stopped a clear goal too.

guess some fans will whine no matter what. if the other team didn't cheat, the officials were crap. those few fans need to wake up already.

Ref had a great game, I was just laughing at the slap Busquets gave to Pepe, my cousin( a madrid fan) jumped up and said he punched him after seeing Pepe fall on the floor, then the replay made him look like a fool lol. Funny we don't acknowledge that, but I guess beating Barca by 2 goals is much bigger news for Madrid...
