Stepan PAK, “FACTS”
The leader of “Barcelona” Lionel Messi, who on 24 June was 33 years, on the eve of the match 31-th round of the championship of Spain with athletic (1:0) committed a flagrant foul and was to receive a straight red card, but escaped any penalty.
In the second half when the score was 0:0, neither the referee nor his assistants in charge of VAR, has not responded to the rudeness of the Argentine, the ensuing spikes cleats on the foot of the football player Athletic Yeray Gonzalez. On the replay clearly shows that Lionel, who is in the list of the most expensive players in the world only 21-e a place, deserved a straight red card.

In the end, Messi remained in the game and on 71 minutes, gave an assist (250 t-shirt “Barca”!) on the Croat Ivan Rakitic, who brought the “Barcelona” victory in the empty camp Nou with 1:0.
This success enabled the club to top the standings in La Liga and break away from real Madrid by three points (though, the team of Zinedine Zidane, on 24 June, still have a home game with Mallorca).
By the way, in the match of the last Matchday against Sevilla (0:0) Lionel Messi, too, could get a red card, when roughly pushed the opposing player Diego Carlos. But then the judge decided not to punish the “alien”.
Perhaps throughout his stellar career (699 goals in 722 games for Barca!) Yes, even before the birthday to six-time winner of the “Golden ball” Lionel Messi deserve a little leniency from the judges. His most over the years in football, not once was beaten even more severely. See for yourself…
