Valladolid denied a penalty for a handball by Jordi Alba

Referee Clos Gómez refused to give a penalty for Valladolid during their game with Barcelona after Jordi Alba blocked a header from Manucho with his hand in the 12th minute, with the score 0-0.

Manucho headed the ball towards the far post of Victor Valdés's goal and Alba blocked the shot first with his chest and then with his left hand. The Angolan striker and the Valladolid fans in the José Zorilla stadium appealed loudly, but neither Clos nor his assistant referee signalled for a penalty.

Barcelona won the game 3-1 thanks to goals by Xavi Hernández, Leo Messi and Cristian Tello, with Javi Guerra scoring for the hosts.
