What the Tuesday was not hand, the Thursday yes. The VAR has been protagonist in this day of the Europe League after it signalled a penalti in favour of the ACE Rome in his party against the Real Betis in the Stadio Olympic, after from the Room VOR called to the referee of the meeting so that it reviewed the action in the monitor.

In the played, after a centre to the area, the balloon finish striking in the arm of Ruibal, that finished changing directly the path of the spherical. The ones of José Mourinho finished being benefited in a played that it was exactly the same to which starred Denzel Dumfries in the defeat of the FC Barcelona in front of the Inter of Milan the past Tuesday in Giuseppe Meazza.

Although it surprises the change of interpretation by part of the referee's referee, the most surrealist is that in the VAR was commissioned the same referee that, two days ago, 'ignored' an identical action of the Inter. Pol Go Boekel was to charge of the technology in the party between Italians and Spaniards, but this time yes signalled the played like penalti.

Absolute indignation with the arbitration

The Barça was victim of an authentic theft in Milan. The history could have been very distinct in case that it signalled the maximum penalty in favour of the Barcelona. Lto action took place in the injury time and, to having hit from the eleven metres, the Catalan picture had achieved an importantísimo tie.

The indignation from the club is absolute. Xavi already left it clear in his back press conference to the party: "it would have to speak the referee. For me it is very clear. The one who would have to speak is he. It is very important in this sport and would have to give explanations. To me no it has wanted to them to me give. I remain me with the last 20 minutes that have been well. We have to do a better party. We have to compete better".
