He hit it like it was Zlatan’s head
Never seen that before. A team kicking the ball out on purpose to get a VAR review.
Really smart by Hakimi
Half the Inter players were telling him to put it out tbf.
it would have been checked no matter when the ball would have gone out
Nah, really dumb move.
Should the penalty not been given, he would've just given possession away. VAR checks it either way, so why not keep playing until the play ends naturally?
Depends on the ref/league. Yesterday the ref missed a clear penalty in favor of our opponent even after checking the VAR, then on the second half, our player got kicked in the shoulder in the opposite area, but the play still went for about 2 minutes and the ref didn't consult the VAR.
Welp, at least things got even
It was pretty stonewall that's why and the ref was in a poor position
The assistant should have given it but seemed scared
He hit that with hate lmaooo
I ve seen him play since he was 16. Never seen him this angry
does it have a wife, he wants to hit that piece aswell
Hatred almost made him miss
There is no such thing as almost when taking penalty’s
The closer it is to missing the better the pen
The closer we are to danger, the farther we are from harm.
Needs more pipe weed and lembas bread
the last of the old toby?
This is poetic.
"Anyone can score a penalty, but not everyone can score one that barely goes in"
You can definitely almost miss when taking a penalty.
Like what does that even mean?
there is no such as almost when taking a penalty
that sound is really satisfying
like a sniper shot
What a pen
Half the thread thinks its a mental decision and the other half thinks it's a stonewall penalty lol
Welcome to serie a
Aiming for Zlatan's shit eating grin
Strange situation. The slide definitely is a penalty, but at the same time it looks like Barella loses his grip and actually jumps over the leg by mistake. So he never touched him.
yeah he kinda dived but if he didn't he would have been hit.
True, but players shouldn't always have to rely on being hit and potentially hurt to get a call. If Barella hadn't jumped, he would've gotten clipped. So pen either way imo.
Yeah, I kind off agree. This situation is so strange though, because he didn't dive and he also didn't jump to avoid getting injured.
It just looked like he got tangled in himself while trying a flick and fell lifting his leg over the slide.
I wonder if in cases where a player jumps to avoid contact but loses balance an indirect free kick would be a better call
Well, if there is no contact it can never be a direct free-kick/penalty, so then it should've been an indirect free kick.
And since VAR can only check for penalties in this instance and there is no contact (so no penalty) VAR shouldn't have intervened at all...
There probably was contact which simply was hard to see.
But this was to tell you that a foul without contact can never be a penalty/direct free kick.
That is the written rule on those cases? Thanks for the info and clarifying it, I wasn't aware of that! So it is not "a pen either way" but a pen if there was contact (which I didn't see any of) or indirect free kick if there wasn't.
Yes, there is.
I find it stupid that the ref seemingly ignored that barely is at a 50° angle from the ground when he pretends to be clipped.
Yeah, Barella did the dying swan shit and that is standard in football nowadays. I despise it, but most players do it so you can't even point it out as "bad taste in this case" when everyone does it. Doesn't take way that he would've been hit and the pen wouldn't have been discussed as "50/50".
I myself think there shouldn't be a contact for the foul. However these decisions are inconsistent. Leao himself got a yellow for "dive" in similar situation this season.
Still a foul though. Barella's ability to move was inhibited by a reckless slide. If you've gotta jump a reckless challenge and fall doing it, it's still a foul.
Honestly the whole "refs are shit" thing is overblown. It was both a yellow and a pen.
Not a yellow, in the penalty area it gets depenalized
Sorry, my comment is ambiguous.
My point was that Zlatan's 2nd yellow was a yellow. And also the pen was a pen.
Inter really lucky today, Zlatans red card was also no or just minimal contact
[yes, really lucky mate, so much luck](http://prntscr.com/xoad9k)
Jesus man you didn’t have to do him like that
On a real note.. wow that is dominant
as a nerrazuri i expect us to lose the next derby when it matters, in serie A.
> So he never touched him.
Are you blind?
he didn't, go frame by frame
Im with you, doesnt look like he touches him at all.
I did , I can clearly see Barella's right foot being dragged.
Then you are legally blind. He so clearly jumps the contact. Its still a serie a penalty because he would've hit him if he didn't jump but he still made absolutely 0 contact
Nah, he’s right. There’s almost no contact there. The slide just makes it look like there was contact
No, look at it frame by frame. No actual touch at all.
It's not a dive or a jump to avoid getting injured either. If Barella wasn't so clumpsy it would be a clear penalty, I'm not sure what it is now.
No touch. But I agree with the penalty decision
LMAO what pen is that
Brilliant from Hakimi to kick it out to force VAR to look at it
Doesn't VAR look at it either way? Afaik, they can just undo anything that happened after the penalty if they give it
They do. They also check it while the game is going on.
Every comment on this post is either about the pen being a banger, it being the most obvious clear pen ever, or it being a dive
Is it me or barella was already down and there was no contact??
doesn't need to be contact he moved to avoid a reckless tackle and lost balance
There HAS to be contact for a direct free kick/penalty offence. If no contact it should be an indirect free-kick.
Can you point me to the rule for that? I always thought that the *attempt* for reckless play is enough to warrant a direct free kick, but that information might be outdated then?
"If an offence involves contact it is penalised by a direct free kick or penalty kick".
Law 12 Fouls and Misconduct, Laws of the game.
Yeah, but look at the text right above that: "A direct free kick is awarded if a player commits any of the following offences against an opponent in a manner considered by the referee to be careless, reckless or using excessive force:
• charges• jumps at
• kicks or attempts to kick
• strikes or attempts to strike (including head-butt)
• tackles or challenges
• trips or attempts to trip"
Not sure I am misreading this, but I would say that the attempt is still punishable then?
True, but at indirect free kick it also says:
"An indirect free kick is awarded if a player:
plays in a dangerous manner
impedes the progress of an opponent without any contact being made
is guilty of dissent, using offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures or other verbal offences
prevents the goalkeeper from releasing the ball from the hands or kicks or attempts to kick the ball when the goalkeeper is in the process of releasing it
commits any other offence, not mentioned in the Laws, for which play is stopped to caution or send off a player"
Then you could also say that it was a case of Barella's progress was being impeded.
Which does not matter since the attempt to trip (with his trailing leg for example) is already made.
The following notes of the indirect free kick section go more into detail that this part of the rules is more aimed at scissor or bicycle kicks to my understanding.
I mean barella cut back to avoid Leao who was committing to a slide challenge. It was also a trailing foot that would have just caught Barella's foot. Its not like it was a crunching tackle, so calling it reckless is a bit much.
One of the best pens I have ever seen
Took out all his anger on the kick
Was there any contact?
He mad af
Lukaku - "Chat shit get banged"
Zlatan fanboys in the mud
What a stupid tackle
He almost fucked it up
Lukaku v Ibra spicing up
if Ibra was still on the field yea
Dub for Rom
Well, he did say he'll wait for him outside didnt he
Lukaku shows up with Mourinho in the parking lot.
Barella was on the ground before Leao even touched him?
No keeper’s saving that in a hundred years, what a blast
there's no contact at all
how the fuck do you go to VAR and see the player wasn’t even touched AND STILL call it a penalty
honestly I could see the reason behind it, but Barella falling before the defender slide in just doesn’t cut it for me
First the red, now this. Bribery allegations incoming...
> Bribery allegations incoming...
Inter haven't paid players in 3 months... bribery with what? Pirelli tyres?
Because conte cried about the ref earlier in the week and this is all that matters in this league
he only jumped to avoid some injury, but there was contact or else Barella would not be tragger in opposite way, unless Barella is superman
What u see from ur angel is not exactly what happend
Yeah I agree the important thing is what you see from your demon
Got downvoted for stating the same thing because I am a Milan supporter. It was a blatant dive. The ref literally spent 3 seconds looking at the replay before making a decision.
You're an idiot if you think its a "blatant dive" Either he falls due to contact or he falls cuz he slipped lost his footing trying to stop and cut as high speeds, either way its NOT EVEN CLOSE to being a dive.
The fact that there was a VAR check and still the pen stood seems absurd to me
Actually unreal that both the refs called it correctly at first then reviewed it (with technology, an even better view) and somehow fucked it up
Ibra in the mud
I don’t understand how anyone can watch this and not think it’s a penalty. Also AC fans have an inferiority complex and it shows heavy
It is Milan. AC is associazione calcio, meaning football club. It would be like calling arsenal “fc”
What about the FC fans tho?
Only to real madrid.
How was that a pen lmao?
Lukaku gets the last laugh
Doesnt matter how it happens, Inter will get the last laugh
Am I too biased to see the contact?
How is that a penalty, Barella skips Leao's legs and dives
exactly, he skips his leg to avoid being hurt, still he does hit his foot if you check other angle, or esle Barella would not be dragged in opposite way of his movement and body.
He never actually touched him🤯🤯🤯
Somebody's getting murdered today
Wait,they give a pen for this?
One more goal rom, and its ur best day in ur life!
He could have lifted over it to go on with the play, just as easily as he could have left it planted to sell the foul better, but why should he give away a chance at penalty, or sacrifice his ankle to be more convincing? The onus is on the defender to know wtf he is doing and not lunge into a space where there's a high likely hood of contact with another player without even being close to the ball. He got clowned.
Valeri in the performance of his life lmao
that was so horrible
Looked like an easy call but from the replay it looks like there may be no contact and might be a dive. Probably the right call at the end of the day
Insane that the ref didn't just call that a foul on the field.
How was that a pen?😂
A pen anyday
clear pen, if it was outside the box you wouldn't complain about it being a foul
There wasn't even any contact. Barella jumped over the leg
I don’t get how that makes it not a pen. If Barella doesn’t jump, there’s contact and it’s a pen. Just cause Barella avoided getting hit doesn’t mean a foul wasn’t committed.
Lol excuse me? He was falling down before Leao arrived and Leao never touched him
smart play, blame Leao for sliding in nowhere near the ball :)
Yet didnt touch Barella, and he was already falling.
I think he meant that reckless tackle is a foul regardless of contact. Still seems harsh tho
He knocked his foot out from under him. That's an easy call
Watch the replay my friend
Yeah looks like he pulls his left leg from underneath him
I thought so too initially but from the replay it looks like there is no contact and Barella jumper over him
The ref pitys Inter at this point. Joke red and joke pen
Lmao Milan fans are actually the worst holy shit
Care to explain?
Every Milan match thread is full of Milan fans whining about the other team and the refs.
Well u are in the match thread without clearly watching the game. Whats ur point?
There is literally no contact, get a new pair of glasses
Inter players are great at hounding the ref. Milan naive to think that the ref would rule on the game in an unbiased way despite how much players shout.
This is what screeching like a clown against the supposed wrongs of a referee the matchday before gets you
A made up red card and a made up penalty
not sure he touches him enough for a fall, but in VAR era touch = penalty (something for ifab to review)
I swear Barella jumps before there is any contact
He hops over his first leg and just goes down, the trailing leg doesn’t even touch him??
And people will say Milan are getting free penalties lmao
Such a shit show😂😂😂
It looks like he never touches him.
Joke call, he on the way down and there’s no contact
This ref is seriously lagging today. Like every single decision takes noticably more time than usually.
Forza INTER e Forza Lukaku
And the Oscar award goes tooo Nicolo Barella
Most ridiculous pen ever given in football history
Former Man United strikers flirting in Milan
LMAO now the ref is injured 😂
Keeper's gotta be saving that.
That post sound is so satisfying..
what the fuck, am i blind or he didn’t even get touched?
Never a red on Ibra and never a pen here either...
Such a strange refereeing
Unbelievable that they needed VAR for such a clear decision
Zlatan’s mouth is bigger than his nose.
this is for ibra
Milan been fucked by the ref here, first the bad second yellow and now a shit pen call.
1000 IQ by Hakimi though, respect that
I honestly don’t see any contact from Leao
Because he scored a pen against our former back-up keeper?
How much did they pay the ref
2 wholesome awards
What a pen, undeserved tho
Flair checks out
Looks like he is on his way down before the contact was even made, not enough in that
