Very poor red that. Terrible piece of play acting. The game has gone soft if that is violent conduct.

Hope Busquets gets punished after the match, he won't be, but he should, because if Inter win through Motta will miss out on the final becuase hes a cheating bastard.

Saha got red for less.

Seems like the crowd has gotten to the ref, that yellow for Cesar was a little ridiculous.

Im leaning towards Inter now after what's gone on, Busquets should be ashamed and so should the Barca supporters, although they're probably pretty happy with themselves right now.

Soft fouls all over the place, this is pathetic refereeing, let them play.

All getting a bit untidy at the moment. Pretty disappointing game so far.

It was a red, by the letter of the law.

If you ask me though, I think there was no intent. I think he was trying to protect the ball, and didn't realise his hand was high enough to hit his face. If that makes sense.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

No it wasn't. No law says that it was.

Pretty sure if hand meets face the ref can give a red.

Remember Saha's? That had even less in it.

The thing was, the straight red was harsh but a booking would have been expected and that would have seen him sent off anyway.  Terrible piece of playacting from Busquets though, really poor.

Barca have been far too one-dimensional so far, although that's mainly because Inter are just sitting so deep and letting them do what they want until they get towards their area.  Alves seems to be the best source of space for Barca, and Pedro has found some space out on the left as well - the trouble is that Samuel and Lucio are so dominant in the air that Barca's crosses would have to be perfect.

It's been pretty much as I'd have expected to be honest, I found that a decent half really.  Would obviously have been better if the game had flowed more, but Barca's gamesmanship and Inter's time wasting is preventing that.

Refs nowadays barely know the rules it seems. If you're running wildly and swinging your arms in the air and smack someone's face, I get it, that's a red. But to just put your arm behind you to feel how close your opponent is and barely graze his face is no form of violent conduct or any other offence.

No one's doubting that. I think players who do this (and it can be proven, via the footage) should be punished harshly after the game. Some big ass fines and suspensions and this shit would stop.
