Getafe has denounced Real Madrid before the Competition Committee of the Spanish Football Federation for improper alignment in the match that both clubs played last Saturday in which the Madrid team won by a goal to nil. The azulón club considers that the change made by Real Madrid in the 84th minute in which Odriozola, Marco Asensio and Camavinga were involved was contrary to the regulations. Carlo Ancelotti was going to replace Marco Asensio to bring on Odriozola, but after realizing that Camavinga had been injured, the Italian coach finally withdrew the French player when Odriozola had already set foot on the pitch.
According to Getafe, at that time the change had already been made, so Camavinga had to remain on the pitch. The regulations say that “substitutions will be effective when the substitute enters the field of play; from that moment, the player who withdraws becomes a substituted player, and the substitute becomes a player, so he can resume the game ”.
Once Real Madrid has been denounced, they have three days to present the allegations that will be studied by the Competition Committee. If he agreed with Getafe, José Bordalás’ team, involved in the fight for relegation, would add three points. Competition must assess whether the error was made more by the referee, by allowing the change, than by Ancelotti. If so, it would be a technical error, so the complaint would not prosper.
