LaLiga outfit request replay after VAR drama

As the Video Assistant Referee continues to make headlines in Europe, one LaLiga side has requested a rematch as the VAR was not 'working correctly'.

Leganes were left livid after they felt a penalty was wrongly awarded against them against Levante on Saturday afternoon.

However, the referee's communication with the VAR seemingly failed after the fourth official passed on the message via the phone.

Levante went on to secure a 2-1 win, but Leganes president Victoria Pavon says the bottom-place club will request a replay.

"Serious things happened in this match between Leganes and Levante, like calling a penalty against us that was a foul outside the area," Pavon said, as per Marca.

"It also happened in the match against Valencia a few weeks ago.

"As well as this, VAR wasn't working correctly.

"It came and went, so we don't feel we were competing under equal conditions to the rest of the teams and that's why we're going to request to replay the match from the minute of the penalty.

"We found that VAR wasn't working well through our delegate and other sources who we don't want to reveal."
