PARMA – Not even the time to start the championship that the VAR is once again the protagonist. On the one-zero result of Juventus on the Parma field, the technology was used to shed light on the possible doubling of Cristiano Ronaldo. We reconstruct the action in order starting from what we had seen in real time.
At 33 ', Cristiano Ronaldo had been served by Douglas Costa. The phenomenon of the Portuguese national team had made two fakes and then managed to free itself from the shot by evading the defensive intervention of the national teammate Bruno Alves. The right diagonal of Cristiano Ronaldo was stuffed to the edge of the pole. Nothing to do for Parma goalkeeper Sepe.
After the goal, Cristiano Ronaldo had celebrated with his usual exultation accompanied by the "siuuuuuuuuu" of the numerous Juventus fans present in Parma. The hosts had not protested at all and were returning to midfield to beat the kickoff that would restart their offensive action.
At this point the referee Maresca intervenes. The whistle stops Parma players and talks to the VAR room through the silent check. After about three minutes of talks, the referee Maresca mimics the gesture of the VAR and cancels the network.
After Cristiano Ronaldo's goal was canceled, the televisions show the image displayed by the VAR room. In this frame we see Cristiano Ronaldo in a position of very light offside. We are probably talking about cm. To eye nud0 it was practically impossible to notice it but the referees present in the room of the VAR have been able to take advantage of this image and in the end they have decided to cancel the net made by the Portuguese phenomenon.
Cristiano Ronaldo leads the Juventus attack even during Sarri management.
