The VAR gives victory to Porto de Casillas in front of Roma

The VAR gives victory to Porto de Casillas in front of Roma


In extra time, when Roma attacked the most, Florenzi grabbed the Porto striker and the referee did not see him. The match was 2-1, like the first leg in Italy. The Roman goalkeeper was going to take the door when the referee said he should wait, that he should not be in a hurry.

He put his hand to his ear and waited to be told what was going on. Then he went to the VAR screen and there was no doubt that there had been a useless grab, because it did not reach the ball, because the shot was impossible and the ball went out, but the grab existed.

The referee took a long look at the screen and when he returned to the field, he made the gesture of the VAR and pointed out the maximum penalty. Florenzi wanted to explain that he had barely grabbed him, that it was very slight. But no. Héctor Pérez scored.

There was one more play in that second part of the extension. A Roma player fell in the area against a rival. The VAR saw it and did not indicate anything. Oporto de Casillas is already in the quarterfinals.
