Goal-line technology is all about the advancements in the number of camera angles that officials are able to consult to improve the reliability and efficiency of decision-making.

The technology is used in Europe’s top five leagues such as Bundesliga, Premier League, Serie A and Ligue 1 use the technology, while the Eredivisie and in the Championship too.

The changes were first adopted by the English top flight in the 2013/14 season, due to Frank Lampard’s controversially disallowed ‘goal’ against Germany at the 2010 World Cup, they set the trend as the wealthiest leagues across Europe quickly followed suit in 2015.

The reason why Spain’s top tier division doesn’t use goal-line technology, is because President Javier Tebas reportedly views the change as ‘too expensive’, per MailOnline.

For another season, while the rest of Europe are all hopping on the trend, Spain have been without the technology, with El Larguero reporting that Tebas is unwilling to pay the ‘£2.6 million’ stating that it is costly to integrate it into the Spanish game.

VAR, which has repeatedly been bashed for plenty of reasons, is in full force in La Liga, but without the camera set-up required for goal-line technology, there are plenty of decisions that are made difficult for the referee.
