Superstar defender Matthijs de Ligt has appeared to get away with a “cast-iron” handball which should have led to Torino being awarded a penalty against Juventus.
In the 10th minute of this evening’s Serie A clash between Juventus and Torino, summer signing Matthijs de Ligt appeared to handle the ball – but the officials failed to award Torino with an apparent ‘cast-iron’ penalty.
After Tomas Rincon’s long throw-in into the box, the Dutchman appeared to handle the ball before clearing the ball in a dangerous area.
Take a look at the incident below:

We can’t believe that VAR didn’t step in and overrule this decision, it looks like a clear penalty.
