Portuguese ref steals the show with VAR call

WATCH: Portuguese ref steals the show with VAR controversy in Madrid - PSG clash

November 26, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Real Madrid was leading the game with authority, but a questionable call by the ref tarnished an interesting clash.

Real Madrid and PSG were giving fans their money's worth during their UEFA Champions League tie at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, but ref Artur Dias decided to step in and join the "fun" in his own terms.

The Portuguese referee had three wrong calls in less than 30 seconds, by failing to give a foul for Los Blancos in PSG's half of the pitch. The ball kept on rolling and Les Parisiens came close to scoring, but Thibaut Courtois fouled Mauro Icardi before he could score, resulting in a penalty.

To make matters worse, referee Dias decided to send Courtois off for his foul...then he decided to look at the Video Assistant Referee, making fans go berserk after he overturned all decisions and gave the ball to Real Madrid due to the foul against Marcelo.

Have a look at this tricky incident (Image might be geo-restricted).

Real Madrid had taken the lead thanks to a fine display by Karim Benzema, who capped an impressive collective action with a precise shot. Unfortunately for him, most fans will be talking about VAR's latest controversy when the game ends.
