What an atrocious rule, lol. This game definitely needed a lolVAR for narrative
Yeah. Remember the first match also. With the first goal of Ajax where VAR used the wrong footage. So many millions in play and amateur hour from one side.
They at the very least will reach the UEFA League knockout fase. Which they would legit be a favorite to win. Losing out on the money while you already have like 1/10 of the budget of other clubs would suck though.
Blind was fouled first. Then had to make the foul to get the yellow. Yellow should stand, but the pen and second red card should not. VAR can absolutely sort this out but doesn't.
Prague, not Genk.
I'm honestly shocked because that's usually not how our games go this season.
Ajax tend to do better in away games though (which is an insanely strong weapon during knock out phases)Well if I'm to speculate I do believe that Chelsea are in the most precarious position right now. They have to go to Valencia, whilst Valencia have to go to Amsterdam. If the home team wins those games and Lille continue to be beaten then Chelsea are out of the Champions League.
Ok but here is where me and others are confused. Why is that arbitrarily a handball and then in the liverpool game we had back to back handballs on genk but the refs ruled them not handballs because it was a "natural" position of the arm?
Ajax players getting suspended could also really impact the next games, but I wonder if uefa dares to screw Ajax even more or not.
Can you even overturn a red card which is a result of a double yellow? I know you can't here in the Netherlands but idk if that rule also applies on an international level.
Also giving yellow for it. Then you imply it was deliberate also.
Didnt watch that game so I can't say, but the likely answer is that there's no consistency between refs. Maybe the officials in the Ajax game would have given those
So in conclusion,
Well that's the problem ain't it. All the technology in the world doesn't matter when it still comes down to refs having to make interpretations and judgements.
It's frustrating because it seems SO much more calculated in American Football.
Or just using wrong moment. Like Ajax vs Chelsea two weeks ago. VAR used the first pic as reference and not the second pick.It's frustrating because it seems SO much more calculated in American Football.
Not to mention bullshit like this happens.
“Here's the actual process of Martin Atkinson manipulating the lines until Firmino is made offside. And he still cannot be offside as he can't score a goal with his arm the eventual line starts from. Shocking. https://t.co/nTiVWUmSXY”twitter.com
