Real Madrid earned a last minute victory against Valencia thanks to Marcelo’s goal. A goal that in normal circumstances would not have been able to happen, simply because the scores should have not been playing in the game.

Marcelo elbowed Lionel Messi in the face during the Clasico, an action that in any other league would have resulted in a red card. But Hernandez Hernandez refused to even give a foul. Marcelo should have been sent off and banned for at least two matches.

This slack refereeing has allowed Madrid to take advantage, with players like Casemiro—who seems invisible to officials—and Sergio Ramos fouling away.

The decision of Hernandez Hernandez to allow Marcelo to play against Depor and Valencia instead of sending him off has had a big effect on La Liga. It is another adulteration of the competition.
