Over the years, football has witnessed various incontrovertible game officiating which many referees have learned from and built upon. Meanwhile, yesterday's game between Elche and Real Betis had some controversial decisions taken by the Referee which affected the game.
Elche started the game well and brilliantly took the lead through Fidel from the spot. Lucas Boye doubled the lead later as the home side leads 2-0 at halftime. The second half saw Lisandro Magalian receiving a straight red card after the Referee contacted the VAR. Then the comeback began for Real Betis as Borja Iglesias scored from the spot to reduce the deficit. Juan Miranda equalized with a deflected strike. Willian Jose scored the winner with a strike from the spot to secure the victory for Real Betis.
However, Referee David Iglesias Gutierrez has been criticized for how he officiated the game. The Spaniard sent off two Elche players last night and awarded two penalties to Real Betis and one to Elche.
This has made the officiating be questioned if it was the worst ever in football history. What are your thoughts on this?
