- Chronicle: Atlético tombs Barça and turns Yeda into Anfield
"Here a lot of VAR and little alcohol," a Spanish radio technician joked, while the video arbitration machine fumed in the last minutes of madness that were lived in the second semifinal of the Supercup. Atletico passed after a deranged match, where Barça could score and ended up eliminated against the tough men of Simeone . There were tanganas, paradones, punished penalties, others without whistling and voided goals of all colors.
The carousel began when Messi was left with a bad face to see how they took the 2-1, shortly after starting the second part. First serious sentence of the VAR, which detected hand in the unleashed Argentine. The 10 had left the locker room like a motorcycle, after finishing the first half very angry with Joao Felix , face to face both until his companions came to put peace.
Griezmann advanced to Barça, in the 62nd minute, now legally before a decomposing Atlético. The win was intuited at the time, with Piqué's header for 3-1. However, again the video said no to Barça, braking dry for a minimum offside of Vidal .
From that annulment, Atlético took power, another since then. The VAR, of course, did not stop. Again his referee, Martínez Munuera , asked González González , the principal, for time, because an action between Saúl and Vidal deserved revision. Nothing to play.
Atlético, now yes, went for the game with the desperation of the one who has been ruined. After tying with Morata's penalty, the VAR pushed Simeone and his bench out of his mind for a very clear hand from Piqué, who did not consider a penalty either on the grass or in the engine room. The type of play did not seem to fit the sudoku of exculpatory options that the regulation seems to give to the blows in the upper extremities. The ball hits the defender's hand, which has it loose instead of the back, and its trajectory is interrupted. Keep on, keep on , the referee asked for the rojiblanco astonishment.
The goal of Correa , also reviewed for possible offside, the VAR found no illegality. Atlético, in the final against Madrid.
