Atletico Madrid Boss Simeone Reveals Why Real Madrid Get More Penalties


Real Madrid get more penalties than other teams in Spain because they are on the attack more often, according to Diego Simeone.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu have suggested Madrid, who sit four points clear of the Catalan giants at the top of La Liga, are benefiting from favourable decisions from referees.

Zinedine Zidane said has was “tired” of hearing such comments after his side beat Athletic Bilbao 1-0 on Sunday, the second straight game they have won courtesy of a Sergio Ramos penalty, which was awarded after a VAR review spotted Dani Garcia’s trip on Marcelo.

Madrid have been awarded nine penalties in La Liga this season – only Athletic and Real Mallorca have earned more (10 each) – and Simeone thinks it is natural for a team that plays on the front foot to get such decisions.

“VAR exposes everything. Before we didn’t have the possibility of seeing some things that we now see. The referees are people who can be wrong as well,” the Atletico Madrid boss told a news conference.

“It is fairer. If they give you more penalties, it’s because you are in the opposition’s area more. If they attack more, like Real Madrid, it means you are there longer.

“In the speed of the game it’s difficult to see what happens, but now another referee sees it with calmness on television. People too, from their homes.

“Then there is a person who decides, which is the VAR. It can hurt you or help you, but now we are all clear on if its offside, if it’s a penalty… we are all more exposed.”
