VAR penalty awarded in Germany after players left pitch

VAR penalty awarded in Germany after players left pitch

Shortly before half-time there were muted appeals for a penalty decision, but they were turned down by referee Guido Winkmann.

Daniel Brosinski tried his luck before half-time and his shot took a deflection off Freiburg defender Marc Oliver Kempf's hand.

The curse of VAR struck again as chaos descended during Mainz's game against Freiburg in the Bundesliga.

As the players departed the pitch, Winkmann was told to consult VAR and ran over to the other side of the pitch to watch the replay on a monitor.

Beatty, Auerbach, and Rick Dumont all said that they thought the district's needs could be met with $105 million in spending. It is an incredibly unique opportunity to be able to work with the board to develop a new school system from the ground up.

The video assistant referee (VAR) system came under fresh scrutiny last night when a team had to be summoned back from the dressing room at half-time to face a penalty.

Both sets of players had already left the pitch for the interval when the technology flagged up a handball at the end of the first period, reports Guardian football journalist Andy Brassell on social media. Protests have taken place during most Monday games.

The second half was delayed by fans throwing toilet paper onto the pitch.

De Blasis followed the penalty, officially recorded in the seventh minute of first-half stoppage time, with a second goal in the 78th minute to seal the win. Wolfsburg is also under threat with four rounds remaining, while survival looks increasingly unlikely for Hamburger SV and Cologne, eight and nine points adrift of safety, respectively.
