Fernández Borbolán was in the eye of the hurricane as things blew up in the match between Levante and Racing Santander. Most of the media covered the incident when Domingo Cisma was sent off for attacking an opponent after Caicedo scored with a player lying injured on the ground, but there is no reason for a side to kick the ball out of play if the referee doesn't stop the game, and Cisma was in the wrong. Some of the protest though was aimed at his linesman, who lifted his flag and then dropped it both times that Caicedo scored, causing the defenders to hesitate and let the striker through. Looking at it coldly though, Racing were probably favoured by the referee after he failed to spot Henrique handle in the area early on. Best not to say that though to Cisma right now, eh? Elsewhere Ayza Gámez made himself unpopular at San Sebastian after turning down Real Sociedad's penalty appeal for hands by Atlético Madrid's Tiago with twenty minutes to go. With protests still going on Atlético ran up the other end and equalised, and to make matters worse Agüero scored another for the visitors a few minutes later from an offside position. (24.11.10)
