With Van Boekel in the VAR, some hands traced to those of Dumfries against Barça were whistled against Betis.
The big difference is that in the Barça game, the VAR did not order the action to be reviewed.
Surreal situation in the Europa League last night. During the match between Roma and Betis at the Olimpico, the referee signaled a penalty for hands similar to those of Dumfries against FC Barcelona in the Champions League.
The most surprising thing is that Pol Van Boekel was in the VAR, the same as in the Barça match! .
In a cross, the ball hit Ruibal’s arm, thus changing the trajectory of the ball. Being in the same situation, Italian team against Spanish in the transalpine country, the match referee did just the opposite.
This time he did punish the Betis and Dybala put his team ahead from eleven metres.
Another example of the mistake made at the Guiseppe Meaza last Wednesday in the highest European competition. Same character, different result.
