Video: Real Madrid given a penalty after ridiculous VAR review against Betis

Posted by

When VAR works well, there are no arguments that the technology is worthwhile and necessary.

However, when the interpretation is wrong, it makes a mockery of its usage.

During the Real Betis v Real Madrid game, a late decision by the officials was an absolute shocker.

With the score at 2-2, Madrid’s Borja Mayoral bore down on Betis defender, Marc Bartra.

As Bartra stumbled, Mayoral gave him a little shove, the former’s left-hand making contact with the ball as he fell.

After a VAR review, Los Blancos were subsequently given a penalty from which Sergio Ramos scored the winner.
