Atlético Madrid had yet more reasons to complain in addition to the penalty referee Gil Manzano failed to give in the first half of their Copa del Rey second leg match against Barcelona at the Camp Nou, when Griezmann had a perfectly legal goal disallowed.

Griezmann goal chalked off

in the 59th minute, Carrasco played a ball into the box for Griezmann to run onto. The French striker then fired home past Cilessen, sending the Atleti fans into delight, with what they thought was the equaliser on the night. 

But the assistant referee had misread the play entirely and raised his flag for offside, despite Griezmann having been onside when the Carrasco's pass was played.
