Barcelona intends to lodge a formal complaint with UEFA regarding the refereeing in their Champions League game against Inter.
The Catalan team lost 1-0 to their Italian opponents in a game marked by contentious official calls.
Denzel Dumfries handled the ball in the Inter penalty area after Ansu Fati’s alleged handball had disallowed Pedri’s equalizer, but his team was not awarded a penalty.
They also felt that Hakan Calhanoglu ought to have been dismissed for a foul on Sergio Busquets, despite having another penalty claim waved away when Robert Lewandowski was pushed in the box.
After the game, Xavi made it clear how he felt, calling the choices made “outrageous” and “pissed off.”
Now, according to AS, his club is taking the situation a step further by putting together a formal complaint that will be forwarded to the governing body.
