Lots of penalty appeals in the midweek round of games, but the only ones given were the two that Mateu Lahoz awarded to Betis in the last game on Thursday night. Both appeared valid, although Zaragoza's Da Silva claimed that the second for hands was involuntary. Messi complained to Velasco Carballo that he should have had a couple against Valencia though, and the Ches also had an appeal for hands by Puyol turned down. Earlier in the evening Ronaldo also thought that Turienzo Alvarez should have awarded him a couple, as well as a possible red card for Christian for his tackle on Arbeloa. And Osasuna felt hard done by on Tuesday when Del Cerro Grande failed to spot Sevilla's Perotti handling the ball late on. All three games ended in draws, so any one of those could have changed the result. What didn't have any effect on the scoreline though was Iturralde' González's decision to disallow Falcao's first strike for reasons only known to him, Atlético winning the game 4-0. Falcao scored two more and also thought he had been awarded another which was eventually attributed to a Lora own goal, so much so that he asked Iturralde for the ball at the end of the match! What he wanted it for God only knows, as he already got one three days ago for his hat-trick against Racing. What, have you lost it already? (23.09.11)
