The RFEF competition committee showed that Real Madrid benefitted from more bad refereeing against Celta Vigo. They took away the second booking Iago Aspas received against Madrid, for diving, which saw him sent off.

The supposed dive was a foul on him by Sergio Ramos in the area but referee Martinez Munuera thought that Aspas dived and dismissed him.

They competition committee say that in the video they acknowledge there was contact which provoked his fall. That means Aspas can play in Celta's final game of the season, but it had an effect on the title race which cannot be undone.
