For others, there is penalti, but no red to the ex of Chelsea, since the car happen of Icardi went far and was not self-evident occasion of goal.
For many others, so much the penalti like the expulsion are very clear and the VAR made a mistake clearly when saying him to the referee that saw the played previous in the monitor.

The push that gives him Gueye to the side is minimum, but for the referee was sufficient for desequilibrarle.
The party had changed totally

The madridistas were a lot of better that the Frenchmen and attained to advance thanks to a goal of Karim Benzema in the minute 16.
