However, the referee of the “mouse” technique warned Monoera that there was a handball on Militao and asked him to review the screen to confirm or deny the decision. However, the international referee canceled Real Madrid’s penalty kick and awarded another kick to Seville, which was tackled by the Croatian Ivan Rakitic, and scored the second goal for his team.
The Spaniard, Oliver Andujar, the referee expert at Radio Marca, says, “The ball hit first in Militao’s shoulder and then with his hand, and this case was unintentional and was not sufficient to award a penalty kick, and the referee had to demand the continuation of the play and grant a clear penalty kick to Benzema afterwards.” Bono made a mistake. “
As for Ituraldi Gonzalez, the arbitration expert for the newspaper “AS” (AS) and radio “Cadina Ser” (Cadina Ser), he stressed that “with the current regulations it is a penalty kick, and with the update of the rules of the game regarding hands for the next season, it will not be a penalty.”
