The Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has called for video goal line technology to be introduced into Spanish football, as it has been in the English Premier League, after his side were denied a clear goal in their last league match against Real Betis at the weekend, Sky Sports has reported.
The Catalan club did end up rescuing a draw from the match but losing another two points while the leaders Real Madrid won to stretch their lead at the top to four points with a game in hand seems to me to have ended any realistic chance of Barca winning the title, although you will get very good odds on them now.
You will not get very good odds on them winning the Copa Del Rey though, after Barca beat Atletico Madrid in the capital by 2-1 to take a commanding position in the two legged semi-final. Real Madrid are already out so Barca are massive favourites and if you want a good bet you might need to use one of the very good footballbets.tips sites around the internet for some advice.
Much harder to call than La Liga or the Copa Del Rey is the other competition the two Spanish giants are still in, the Champions League, although the way that Barca have been well below par at times this season does not encourage me to back them to win it. But with La Liga looking lost, perhaps Enrique and his players will see this as a chance to rescue the season. I certainly hope so.
