Barcelona remains at the top with a 5-point lead in front of Atletico Madrid. `I have always said that the work of the judges is difficult, but in the first half, the opponent`s goalkeeper obviously plays with his hand outside the penalty area, so equality leaves us with a bitter taste in his mouth, ` Iniesta commented. Las Palmas did a great job in this game, and we missed the edge in the last third of the field to finish them, but we remain at the top, although our lead was reduced. change our setting, `he added. The coach of the `blue-red` Ernesto Valverde was also not pleased with the decisions of Laos. `The penalty was shocking, I think the equalizer came from a non-existent penalty, and that goal gave the rival a self-confidence as we played much more hurriedly, ` Valverde said. Barcelona accepts Atletico Madrid on Sunday in the 27th round of the championship, and the meeting may prove crucial in the fight for the title. `We lost two points at a very important moment of the season, and we knew we would be playing a hard-to-reach field, although Las Palmas is in the relegation zone, and on Sunday against Atletico Madrid will be the hardest battle. we try to increase it by winning against our direct competitor, `said midfielder Sergio Buscakes.
