in the Champions League final, Real Madrid played Liverpool. Real Madrid striker Benzema scored a goal, but the video assistant referee thought Benzema’s Offside goal was called invalid. However, this decision has caused great controversy.
the controversial decision appeared in the 43rd minute of the game. After breaking into the restricted area, Benzema chose to return the ball. Baldwin immediately blocked the ball and Benzema pushed and shot with his left foot. However, the linesman raised the flag to signal Benzema to be offside first, and the goal was called invalid. After the video assistant referee intervened in the decision, he confirmed that the goal was invalid.
the problem is that the slow motion shows that although Baldwin stabbed the ball, the ball bounced on fabinho’s feet and Benzema scored.
legendary defender Terry questioned the referee’s decision,”why not award a goal? I’m glad Walton explained clearly for us, the rules obviously have no meaning, because when will Liverpool deliberately let Benzema touch the ball? in fact, the touch came from Liverpool players, which just shows that it should be an effective goal.”
Rio Ferdinand also questioned the decision twice,” the ball was touched by a Liverpool player, but should I be judged offside? if I were a Real Madrid player, I would go crazy in the dressing room.”
however, according to the current rules, this goal should indeed be 1 penalized as an invalid goal. The rules stipulate that” in the following cases, the ball touches or interferes with the opponent’s players, so as to obtain benefits: the ball bounces or refracts from the goalposts, beams, competition officials or the opponent’s players. “
the former La Liga referee itulard also believes that” they think Baldwin touched the ball first and then hit fabinho to bounce back, which is the reason why the referee cancelled the goal. this is not due to the interference of the opponent. I think the goal should be cancelled because it is a bounce.”
however, Pedro Martin, an analyst at cobay radio, has a different view.”Liverpool players touch the ball twice, one forward and one backward, so they should consider the goal effective. The embarrassing thing is that the game was delayed for 5 minutes because of this penalty.”
legendary striker van Basten once again questioned,”these praise rules are annoying me. Now they have become too complicated. I don’t know.”
