The controversy returns with him VAR and the offside after the images that have transcended by the Atlético de Madrid’s second goal in Thursday’s game against Huesca, the work of Carrasco. The play, already in the game, provoked protests from Huesca footballers asking him to indicate the illegal position either from the Belgian, or previously from Dembélé at the beginning of the action.
However, the VAR informed the match referee, Munuera Montero, that the position was correct, but when the image that determines whether the offside exists has been analyzed in depth, the controversy has been unleashed.
The blue line that delimits from where the position of a footballer is not allowed, part from Marcos Llorente’s boot, assistant on the play, instead of doing it from the ball, which was further behind.
Had the ball been taken as a reference, the move would not have been validated, since Carrasco’s knee seems to be more advanced than the ball.
The move has increased the pressure on the VAR as it occurred less than a week after a similar action against Real Madrid. In the match against Getafe at the Coliseum, Mariano saw a goal annulled with the offside lines drawn in a way that was highly questioned by the white fans.
