MILAN – Milan-Juventus' 38-minute slow-motion episode. On the result of 0-1 for the bianconeri, the referee Mazzoleni awarded a penalty to AC Milan for a touch of Benatia's hand on Higuain's action after consulting the VAR. Penalty but did not arrive the double warning, and then the expulsion, Benatia. After Higuain showed up from the eleven meters, taking the ball away from Kessie, he kicked where he pointed to Szczesny and made a mistake.
This episode has triggered quite a few controversies on social media. The Milan fans were thrown against Higuain, not so much for the mistake as for taking the ball to Kessie, and against the referee, who did not expel Benatia showing him the second yellow card that could be regulated by the hand. Here are some tweets on the subject.
It was enough to say immediately "is rigorous and yellow x Benatia" instead control long, mazzoleni recalled and he goes reluctantly, back, from the penalty but the second yellow no because it would be too much, is the juve fucking. This is our championship.

Benatia warned, did not he?

#FiorentinaNapoli referee Mazzoleni, Koulibaly's foul, caution , goes to the Var, assigns the penalty and turns the yellow card into expulsion. #MilanJuve referee Mazzoleni, goes to the Var assigns the penalty and does not warn Benatia already cautioned.
Find the difference?

A sacrosanct rigor, not for Mazzoleni, who whistles immediately miming an arm attached to the body that never exists, then too shameful is recalled to the Var at that point must give it, but the chocolates serve the same yellow second failure to Benatia.
