VAR awards R. Madrid dubious PK against Barca

VAR steals the show as Ramos scores controversial penalty vs Barcelona

October 24, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
Clement Lenglet pulled Ramos' shirt inside the box to create the controversy, and referee Martínez Munuera decided to award the spot kick after watching the replay.

Once again, Sergio Ramos proved why he is considered the heart and soul of Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid.

The Spanish player returned to action after missing the UEFA Champions League clash against Shakhtar to lead Real Madrid's assault to Camp Nou, and as expected, he had a key role in the game by causing and eventually scoring quite the important goal for Los Blancos against their bitter rivals.

Everything started from the left flank, where Real Madrid took a free kick. As the ball approached the 6-yard box, Clement Lenglet pulled Ramos' jersey as many players around the world do in set-pieces. The action initially escaped referee Martínez Munuera's sight, but VAR stepped up to ask the official to take a look at the controversial play.

Eventually, the ref would award the penalty, causing quite a storm on social media. Apparently, fans were not satisfied with this call, mainly because how VAR has been used to shift the tide in some games where Real Madrid has been involved.

Have a look for yourself and decide if this should have been awarded as penalty, which was converted into a goal by Ramos (Image might be geo-restricted).
