Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti questioned the canceled goal struck by Marco Asensio in defeat at Barcelona.
Ancelotti said that he is going back to “Madrid with the doubt of the offside” flagged against Asensio by VAR that cancelled out a Los Blancos goal at 1-1 in a match that Barcelona ended up winning 2-1.
Asensio’s strike was disallowed in the 83rd minute because it was offside.
“It was a complete performance from the first to the last minute. We didn’t win because of the offside, which we still have doubts about,” insisted Ancelotti in a press conference.
Despite the defeat, Ancelotti said that “with performances like this” his team will “win something in the remainder of the season” with the Copa del Rey and Champions League still in play.
Now slipping 12 points behind Barça, he added: “The match was very good and the changes were very good. We are going to fight until the end in all competitions with a lot of confidence.”
