Competition, which also gave Betis a accessory fine of 350 euros and 600 to the offender in application of art. 52, rejected the allegations presented by the Sevillian entity, which indicated in its writing that there was a manifest material error in the arbitration certificate, since he understood that the Frenchman tried “only to defend his position and maintain possession of the ball, there being no excessive force or action worthy of expulsion”.
