Real Madrid fan's thread of VAR decisions that have gone against the club this season

Amazingly, a penalty wasn't awarded to Real Madrid for this foul on Karim Benzema...

Real Madrid were at the centre of yet more VAR controversy yesterday.

Los Blancos claimed a priceless 1-0 win away at Athletic Bilbao to put them in pole-position to win the La Liga title.

Sergio Ramos scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot, with the Real Madrid captain then at the centre of the VAR controversy shortly after.

The 34-year-old inadvertently stamped on Raul Garcia in the box, but even after the technology reviewed the incident, a penalty wasn't awarded.

So it begs the question; is VAR in favour of Zinedine Zidane's side? It's a debate that will rage on for the foreseeable future.

Ask any Barcelona or Atletico Madrid fan and they'll emphatically answer, yes. However, one Real Madrid fan has created an eye-opening thread of VAR decisions that have gone against the club during the 2019/20 season.

In total, 11 incidents feature in the thread and we've cherry-picked the six best below. You can view the entire thread by clicking HERE.

Maybe the concept of 'Real VARdrid' is a myth, eh?

GIVEMESPORT'S Danny Ryan says...

The idea that 'VAR always goes in favour of the big teams' is one that is not going away anytime soon.

We all thought technology would bring an end to the concept of 'big-club bias' but in a way, it's arguably made the analogy more potent than ever.

But the idea that Real Madrid only benefit from VAR is a ludicrous one. The incidents highlighted in the thread are all the evidence you need to debunk that myth.

Ramos' penalty vs Bilbao

Every team in the world under the eye of the new technology will benefit one week and then have the opposite occur the following.

Were it not Real Madrid, the biggest club in world football, at the centre of these VAR decisions, it's likely no one would bat an eyelid.

It's time to just accept that Zidane's side are going to win La Liga by being the best team in Spain, not because of technological intervention.
