Luis Suarez showed his one-of-a-kind persona as he was shown a yellow card for looking over the referee’s shoulder to see the VAR monitor during Atletico Madrid’s UCL tie against Lokomotiv Moscow.
The attention-grabbing moment of the Champions League moment came in the 21st minute as the referee went over to the VAR monitor to review a penalty call.
Hector Herrera was adjudged to have handled the ball on the edge of the box, with Suarez lurking behind the referee to get his own look at the incident off the monitor.

Tie tie ended 1-1 as the penalty was awarded and Anton Miranchuk tucked it away. Diego Simeone’s side will feel extremely hard done by the call, but they ultimately should’ve been better.
