A ‘loud scandal’ defended by Real Madrid… breaking the simplest laws of football


The incident involved changing the substitute during the game, after the substitute had entered, which is a clear and almost unbelievable infraction.


The incident happened in the 84th minute, when coach Carlo Ancelotti decided to take off Marco Asensio, who scored the game’s only goal, and introduce defender Alvaro Odriozola.

This change was the fifth and last for Real Madrid.

But after Odriozola entered the pitch, Ancelotti decided to ask for a “re-substitution”, when he noticed the injury of his French player, Eduardo Camavinga.

After that, the referee oddly agreed to ‘change the substitution’, so he sent Asensio back onto the pitch and pulled out the injured Camavinga.

the law

According to AS, the change is a clear violation of the law.

According to the Laws of the Game published by the International Football Association Board (IFAB), Madrid shouldn’t have reversed the change they chose for their staff.

According to Law 3.3, which means “substitution procedure”, “a substitution is complete when a substitute enters the field of play, from that moment the substituted player becomes a substituted player.

At the Santiago Bernabéu, referee Juan Martínez Monuera didn’t follow this rule.

With Odriozola on the pitch and Asensio out, the match official allowed the striker to return and continue playing.

With Camavinga injured, Real Madrid had to play with ten players and not allow the team to ‘fall back after being substituted’.
