Messi refused to shake this Referee hand after the game 1

According to the Maxbet Malaysia report, after Barcelona was draw by Girona, Messi was very dissatisfied with the referee Gil Manzano, and he refused to shake hands with the referee after the match.

In this game, the referee has several controversial judgments. First, in the 35th minute, Lenglet had a suspicious elbow Pons action when he was intercepted. The referee confirmed the Barcelona defender after passing the video referee. Lenglet had already broken the ball at the time. This was just an unintentional action, and the red card was too harsh.

Spanish TV station showed that Pique had an argument with the referee Manzano before the start of the second half. Pique apparently believed that Lenglet should not have a red card.

In the second half, Messi was also very dissatisfied with Manzano.  Messi broke through to the top of the restricted area, but was tackle and fell to the ground, and Manzano did not blow the whistle for this. Messi got up and express his dissatisfaction, and also yelled at the referee.
