Draw with Sevilla leaves Actual’s Zidane seething


Madrid: After seeing their chance to reach the top of the Spanish La Liga slip away, defending champions Real Madrid turned their anger toward the officials. Real blasted the referee and VAR after Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Sevilla, which kept the club from taking the lead with three rounds to go. Chasing their first league title since 2014, Atletico Madrid stayed two points in front of both second-place Real and Barcelona. The complaints by Real came after video review turned a penalty kick for the hosts into one for Sevilla with the game at 1-1 in the second half. The referee had called a penalty for a foul on Karim Benzema in the 74th minute, but VAR went back to find a controversial handball by Real defender Eder Militao a few seconds earlier in the other area. “I never speak about the referees, but today I’m angry,” Real coach Zinedine Zidane said.
