And so we reach the end of the first season of VAR! The video system came into play again this weekend, with Sánchez Martínez in particular overturning an earlier decision to award a penalty for hands by Sevilla’s Mercado when they were 1-0 up against Athletic Bilbao. A draw there would have given Athletic a place in the Europa League next season, but after that Sevilla went on to score again, and the Basque side were out of Europe. No real controversy in this season’s cup final between Barcelona and Valencia, with referee Undiano Mallenco in charge for the last time before retiring, which meant that Estrada Fernández takes our “White Stick” award this season after clocking up 168 yellow cards and 23 red in 25 games, well clear of his nearest rival.
