LaLiga: Invented penalty – Ancelotti blows hot as Real Madrid drop points to Girona

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has said an “invented” penalty is the reason they drew 1-1 with Girona in LaLiga on Sunday.

Madrid took the lead through Vinicius Junior in the 70th minute, before the visitors were awarded a penalty 10 minutes later.

Marco Asensio was deemed to have handled the ball inside the box.

Cristhian Stuani converted the penalty, while Rodrygo had a goal ruled out for a foul on goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

The draw leaves Madrid just one point ahead of Barcelona at the top of the table.

“The first situation is quite clear. [Asensio] didn’t touch the ball with his hand. I spoke to him. He touched it with his chest.

“His left hand was in a strange position, and if he touched the ball with his hand there could be a doubt. But he didn’t. They invented it,” Ancelotti said.

The draw comes after Madrid’s first defeat of the season in midweek when they lost 3-2 away at RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
