The Blaugrana side complained vigorously after this call by the ref, but the Brazilian midfielder got away with it.

The game between Manchester United and Barcelona did not disappoint fans across the world, but the real disappointment came when VAR was needed and the game's referee did not decide to look at a controversial play.

The game between Los Culés and the Red Devils went back and forth with key chances for both teams, and just when the Spanish side seemed to deserve to score the go-ahead goal in the final stretch, the ref decided that a block by Fred with his right arm did not deserve a second look on the VAR monitor.

Barça players did not waste any time to complain about this decision, but ref Maurizio Mariani did not hesitate and told players for both teams to carry on with the match.

Have a look at Fred's move and make up your mind: Should a penalty have been awarded to Los Culés? (Image might be geo-restricted).

The return leg of this tie will be taking place next week at Old Trafford. For full TV and streaming info, visit our dedicated match page here.
