“Stinginess”… What is the reason for the lack of Hawk Eye technology in El Clásico?

Millions of people around the world wondered about the reason for the absence of Falcon Eye technology from the match between Real Madrid and Barcelona, which was held for the 32nd round of the Spanish League.

A major controversy arose after Lamine Yamal touched a cross that crossed the goal line before Andrey Lunin blocked it, amid calls for Barcelona to count the ball as a goal.

Unlike the five major leagues, there was no goal-line technology, or what is known as “Hawk Eye,” to resolve the issue, so regular video technology was resorted to, and there was no snapshot that actually showed whether the ball passed the line with its full turn or not.

Ultimately, the video technology determined that the ball had not crossed its entire circumference, and it was not awarded a goal.

According to Spanish media, the reason for the lack of Falcon Eye technology is the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, who refused to pay money to purchase it from FIFA.

The “Hawk Eye” technology costs only 3 million euros, yet Tebas refused to have it in his competition and considered this value to be exaggerated.

Ultimately, it became clear how important the technique was, especially since no one could say for sure whether the goal was correct or that the decision not to score it was correct.
