The Real Madrid achieved the victory in front of the Inter of Milan (-2), in a party in which the decisions of the referee benefited to the group madridista
The Real Madrid of Zinedine Zidane has life in the Champions League thank you, mainly, to a fellow that never fails him: the videoarbitraje. The merengues won with controversy in the visit of the Inter of Milan to the stadium Alfredo Gave Stefano (3-2) in the third day of the competition of clubs. Before, the Real Madrid had not achieved the victory in the competition, with a defeat in front of the Shakhtar Donest in his première (2-3, in Valdebebas) and a tie in front of the Monchengladbach (2-2 in the Borussia Park).
The meeting between merengues and nerazzurri began very equalised and with an Inter very enchufado in the terrain of game. The group directed by Zidane had his occasions of face to the arch defended by Samir Handanović, but the played more important were by part of the ones of Conte. However, when it happened the half hour of party, the marker put to the favour of the venues after a goal of Karim Benzemá. The French took advantage of that Achraf Hakimi made a mistake when giving a pass backwards, stole the balloon and defined.
To simple sight, went an error of the Moroccan defender, but in the played previous, the left side of the Real Madrid, Feerland Mendy, pushed to Achraf just in the moment in which it had to give the pass. It was a push that neither the referee neither the VAR reviewed and the goal of Bezemá went up to the marker. In the previous press conference, Antonio Conte did not want to desatar the controversy regarding the error of the referee, but affirmed that for him "was clear fault on Hakimi of Mendy in the first goal of the Madrid"
It is not the first time that happens
The VAR has been very controversial since it arrived to the football and always have argued his interventions, but also when they overlook an action that can change the course of a party. The meeting of the Champions League of this Tuesday was a proof of this. The technology did not review the played of Mendy, the Real Madrid came up and marked two goals followed, practically, although Lautaro Martínez recortó the distances immediately.
It is not the first time that a decision (or the fault of decision) benefit to the Real Madrid, as it happened in the Classical, with the penal of Clément Lenglet to Sergio Bouquets, and after the stop by the coronavirus in LaLiga Santander, where the madridistas heaved his thirtieth fourth League to base of decisions more than questionable by part of the arbitration.
