Petition calling for Barcelona and PSG Replay has reached 200,000 signatures

A petition demanding that Barcelona’s Champions League second leg match with PSG be replayed has garnered over 100,000 signatures online.

Barcelona overcame a four-goal deficit from the first leg in Paris to triumph 6-1 in the Nou Camp and book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The match, which saw Barcelona score three goals in the last five minutes, was hailed as the greatest comeback in football history as Sergi Roberto’s stoppage time finish capped off a miraculous performance.

But one Real Madrid fan has demanded the tie be replayed due to the performance of referee, Deniz Aytekin.

Aytekin was heavily criticised for his performance in the Nou Camp after he gave two controversial penalties for Barcelona and turning down PSG’s appeals for a spot-kick when Javier Mascherano slid in on Angel Di Maria.

Will this petition be successful?

Real Madrid fan, Luis Melendo Olmedo, has set up the petition on  change.org and has asked that Uefa strike the result from the record.

Olmedo cites “incidents that seriously damaged PSG as a result of the German referee Deniz Aytekin, who gave Barcelona an advantage with his refereeing decisions” as the inspiration behind the petition.

Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano admitted he had fouled Di Maria in the penalty area with the Argentine closing in on goal.

“I made contact with Di María. It’s obvious it was a foul. I’m not going to lie about it,” he told Spanish newspaper AS.
