Not much happened in the Bombonera between Boca and A. Mineiro. But ten minutes before the end of the first half, the controversy appeared in the Bombonera. A goal disallowed at the request of the VAR, with a change in the judge’s decision and protests from locals and Brazilians (with Nacho at the head) in a game that was totally stung. Then in Ole We are going to explain what happened. What is certain: it was not missing and what was Diego González’s goal was badly annulled.
After a great play by Chelo Weigandt in the middle of the small area, Norberto Briasco rested his hands on Nathan Silva’s waist, who jumped up and immediately called for foul because he understood that the former Hurricane had made him lose his balance. Next, the González Octopus beat Réver de Arriba and He woke up goalkeeper Everson early to celebrate 1-0.

While those from Boca went out to celebrate and those from Mineiro protested, the VAR (managed by Derlis López, who did not see the hand in Peru vs. Brazil for America’s Cup) called the referee Andrés Rojas. The main referee had seen the action on the field and was confident of the validation of the goal. But the technology, that analyzes especially the goals or when there is a possible manifest error – it did not seem like it-, made Rojas doubt, who and had to go to the monitor to see the play. If the VAR team did not call him, the game would resume with 1-0.
Diego González’s goal cry.
While it may be a play of interpretation (that is, if Briasco has enough strength to displace the defender or if it was a bad calculation in his jump), the sentence of Olé is that eThe Boca player is not decisive in the loss of stability of the Mineiro defender. There was a touch without power, but the Gaul protested, explaining with gestures that there had been a push.
LOOK AT THE GOAL CANCELED
The push in the goal. Badly canceled by the judge.
The point is that a scandal was unleashed on the court, with an evident fever on Boca’s side. And much more when Rojas decided to annul the goal, modifying the initial ruling. The homeowners’ grievances continued at halftime, with Miguel Angel Russo notoriously upset. The complaints were extended in the end, again with DT, accompanied by captain Izquierdoz. Controversy in the first leg of the round of 16, with a goal disallowed at a key moment of the game, which was 0-0 and very close.
