VAR upheld the winner of Atletico - Valladolid

Atletico Madrid scrapped Real Valladolid’s 1-0 victory at home in La Liga on Saturday, thanks to a late header from Vitolo ‘s replacement to move into third in the lead.

Atletico Madrid beat Valladolid 1 (0-0) in a 30th round match of Spanish Championship played before their Wanda Metropolitano stadium’s unfilled stands.

Vitolo cashed in from Valladolid’s debutant goalkeeper Jose Antonio Caro ‘s bad situating to head the ball simply past the goal line. Despite the fact that a defender drove it away, a VAR analysis maintained the choice by the linesman to award the goal.

Vitolo was the scorer of the goal worth three points in the 81st moment and VAR gave the final choice on the shot, foreseeing that the ball crossed the goal line with the whole length.

Thanks to this goal, Atletico has attached 52 points with Seville and completed third, consolidating their situation in the Champions League. Valladolid remained with 33 points in fifteenth place.

Getafe and Eibar contested 1-1 in the penultimate game of Saturday’s program. The host team took the lead in the 30th moment with a goal from Etebo, and Charles equalized in the principal half at the 6th moment of the arbitrator’s extra time. The subsequent goal was scored by Eibar in the 86th moment yet the Bigas scorer’s back was signaled from the VAR room.

Leading Barcelona has sixty-five points, three more, yet in addition more than Real Madrid.

The remaining three 30th round matches are planned for Sunday and meet Celta Vigo-Alaves (14.00), Valencia-Osasuna (19.30), and Real Sociedad-Real Madrid (22.00).
