Last summer, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) made public its new regulations on the launch of penalties, which forces the goalkeeper to keep only one foot on the line at the time of launch. On August 21, the aforementioned agency affected through a circular in this rule, with which it intends to grant "greater freedom of movement to goalkeepers" and clarify the usual doubts about it. However, far from clarifying the controversy, the first day of the Champions League was stained by this controversy in Dortmund.
Marc-André Ter Stegen's formidable stop before Marco Reus's shot from 11 meters now seems to be involved in the controversy. Romanian referee Ovidiu Hategan did not force him to repeat the pitch, even though the images show that the Barcelona goalkeeper had no foot in the regulation place.
"It is difficult to study their releases, because it always changes. But I had an intuition," revealed the German international, still in the shadow of Manuel Neuer in the Nationalmannschaft.
According to the aforementioned IFAB brief, the members of the arbitration team "must guarantee the repetition of the throw" if the goalkeeper "comes forward before the ball is in play and deflects it."
On the second day of LaLiga, this same controversy presided over Levante - Villarreal (1-2), when José Luis Munuera Montero forced to repeat a penalty that Andrés Fernández had arrested José Luis Morales. After the indication of the VAR, the Andalusian referee ordered that it be launched again and Roger Martí did not forgive the 1-1.
