Espanyol demands a rematch against Atletico Madrid

Espanyol demanded a replay of its last match against Atletico Madrid, which ended in a draw with three goals for each team.

This came after counting the second goal for Atletico Madrid, although it was rejected by the arena referee at first.

The referee refused to count Atletico’s second goal scored by Antoine Griezmann, but video technology decided its validity based on controversial footage.

Yannick Carrasco scored the third goal for Atletico Madrid at the beginning of the second half, but Espanyol succeeded in coming back and equalizing with three goals.

Espanyol’s statement is based on the decision to cancel the expulsion of Vinicius Junior, the Real Madrid player, after video technology provided clips taken out of context that led to the expulsion of the Brazilian alone.

Espanyol is facing relegation, as it occupies the nineteenth place with 35 points, 3 points behind Cadiz, who is in the seventeenth place, the first safety position.
