On Sunday evening, Los Blancos extended their lead at the top of the table to eight points when they managed to beat Sevilla 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Before the encounter, however, Los Nervionenses were unhappy with Real’s conduct towards the match officials.

The referee in charge for the game was Isidro Diaz de Mera Escuderos, but during Real Madrid TV‘s build-up to the fixture, they included a segment highlighting the official’s past mistakes.

With Real having done similar in previous matches, Sevilla decided to take matters into their own hands and issue a formal complaint to the Spanish football authorities about their opponents’ conduct.

“Sevilla FC has proceeded to denounce this Saturday by means of a letter, before the Competition Committee of the RFEF, the campaign of persecution and harassment against referee Diaz de Mera, appointed as the main referee of tomorrow’s match between Real Madrid and Sevilla FC, as well as against Pablo Gonzalez Fuertes, referee appointed for the VAR, through Real Madrid TV, Real Madrid’s official television channel,” a statement from Sevilla read.

“Sevilla FC would like to formally denounce the present events to the federation, in order to assess whether these events can be considered as an infringement of the General Regulations of the RFEF or any other regulations that are applicable to it.

“The club also wishes to reiterate its strongest condemnation of these behaviours and orchestrated campaigns to undermine the image of the refereeing establishment, doing serious damage to Spanish football and calling into question the integrity of the competition.”
