There are teams who are competing against the best out there, and trying to give their 110% to keep themselves level with them, but poor referees’ decisions is killing the game. They have ruined their campaign, and if it continues week and week, the beautiful game of football will lose its beauty.

Poor refereeing decisions are taking away the glamour of football in 2016/17 season, and the games involving big teams have suffered the malice of poor refereeing decisions lately.

Juventus vs Napoli, CoppaItalia semifinal first-leg

The latest victim of poor refereeing decisions becomes the CoppaItalia semifinal first leg between Juventus & Napoli. Juve wins the game 3-1 after going a goal down in first half. Bianconeri were awarded two controversial penalties, and Paulo Dybala converted both of them to give the two time defending champions an advantage to seal their berth in third consecutive final. First, Dybala awarded a penalty seeking a contact to go down, and second Juan Cuardado run into Pepe Reina, despite the Spanish goalkeeper touch on the ball. Both of the penalty shouldn’t have stayed, and Napoli had a penalty appeal rejected, when Albiol was challenged by two of Juventus players.

Napoli Sporting Director – Cristiano Giuntoli publicly outbursts, “Shameful decisions by the referee. Congratulations to our players.” Aurelio De Laurentiis, Napoli club president threatens to play his youth team in second leg against Juventus adding fuel to the controversial decisions.

Villarreal vs Real Madrid, 26th February

Another victim of poor refereeing decision was lately Villarreal. The Yellow Submarines were leading into the game with 2-1, when referee awarded a penalty to Real Madrid. Bruno Soriano handled the ball in the penalty area, which wasn’t a deliberate attempt, but referee Jesus Gil Manzano pointed straight to the spot-kick. Cristiano Ronlado converted the penalty with ease, and Los blancos got their lost footing back in the game, and later Alvaro Morata header seal the game 3-2 for Laliga leaders.

If that game would have ended differently Villarreal would have been pushing for Champions League berth, and Barcelona would have been league leaders. In Laliga margins of errors are very low, and this season Villarrreal game is definitely going to play a role in deciding the champions.
