The La liga giants FC Barcelona were denied a clear goal in Sunday's controversial 1-1 draw against Real Betis, when the match referee Alejandro Jose Hernandez failed to see the ball had actually crossed the Real Betis goal line and was unaided as, unlike Europe's other major leagues, La Liga doesn't have goal line technology.

And after being denied a clear goal the Barcelona coach Luis Enrique stressed his desire for Spanish football to embrace video technology in crucial refereeing decisions and according to the league chiefs trials to take place from next season.
On Wednesday ahead of FC Barcelona’s Copa del Rey semi-final, first leg at Atletico Madrid, the 46-year-old Spaniard Luis Enrique, who is currently managing the La Liga champions said, "I think we have to differentiate between video refereeing which means re-refereeing many things and I am not in favour of…and helping the referees with technology in key moments of the game,"
"A ball over the line or disallowed goal or red card offence…these are the plays where the referees need help and would only lose two or three seconds to check and clarify." Enrique added.
