The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has rejected the appeal presented by the Leganés for the repetition of the game that faced Levante, on day 8 of this season, for “lack of legal basis” after the club cucumber report having suffered a penalty against “outside the area”.

The match held on October 5, 2019 was marked by a controversial action by Dimitrios Siovas. The cucumber player knocked down the granota Roger out of the area after 44 minutes of play, but the referee indicated penalty without interference from VAR. The Leganés ended up losing that encounter by 1-2 and the president of Madrid, Victoria Pavón, asked for the repetition of the meeting from that minute.

The RFEF rejected the complaint of Leganés -At the beginning of 2020- by “lack of legal basis” and for the “danger” that would have meant setting a precedent with the repetition of the game, as confirmed to Europa Press the general director of the entity, Martin Ortega.

The case was in the hands of RFEF Competition Committee, who declared himself incompetent to resolve the complaint on October 9 and went to the General Secretariat of the agency. There, after another resource of Leganés, the protest returned to Competition, which finally decided to rule against the blue and white interests.
