It did time that Cristiano Ronaldo did not mark from the penalty spot, but the nickname of 'Penaldo' has gone back with strength in the social networks after the last controversial victory of the Juventus of Turín. The 'bianconeri' won to the Genoa on the horn (in the minute 95) with a maximum penalty of 'CR7' that he caused and, to continuation, commissioned to transform.

The sequence leaves clear that the author of the penalti, Tonny Sanabria, hardly brushes the leg of the Portuguese forward when this leaves fall in the interior of the area. It was a 'piscinazo' in all rule, but the collegiate Antonio Giua bit the hook and conceded to the Juventus three points of gold, that cost him to keep leader of the Series To to the detriment of the Inter of Milan.

Of course the arbitration of the Juventus-Genoa did not like to the Inter, that saw prejudiced indirectly, as neither to the Naples. The brother of one of the forwards of the picture partenopeo, Lorenzo Insigne, has loaded duramente against the referee of the Juventus-Genoa. "And the VAR? This is the ruin of the Italian football" published Marco Insigne, that criticised even more to Giacomelli, the referee that pitó the Napoli-Atalanta (2-2).

And it is that in said meeting produced until three possible penaltis in favour of the Napoli that were not pitados. One of them, work of Kjaer on Fernando Llorente in the minute 86, caused the ire of Carlo Ancelotti and his back expulsion, losing like this the party of the next day. The Napoli finished very angered with the arbitration in front of the Atalanta, and some think that the Juventus received a deal more 'favourable' in front of the Genoa.

The VAR follows without generating consensus in the European elite

"The big VAR-gogna", has published in the last hours Marco Insigne -the brother of the quoted footballer of the Napoli- in a post in his Instagram, collecting images of the three possible penaltis no pitados to the celestial team in Saint Paolo during the second part against the Atlanta. It is clear that the controversies that generates the VAR in Spain also are presents in the Series To.

The own Leo Messi thought days backwards, in an interview, that treats of a tool that likes him but that still has to perfect to be totally just. It treats of a thought shared by the majority of players of the elite, that sometimes see prejudiced by the wrong application of the VAR, or by his invalid application when it would have to appear in scene. The debate follows very alive in the big leagues.
