🎥Was it a valid goal or not? Referee management returns in detail on the decisive phase at Club Brugge – Cercle Brugge – Football News

The heart of the blue city of Bruges stopped for a few minutes yesterday. In the end, Jonathan Lardot decided not to award a goal to Cercle Brugge due to the previous offside. What is the opinion of the referees’ management at this stage?

Six minutes. It seemed to take a long time before VAR and Jonathan Lardo came to a decision. Final Verdict: It does not matter if the ball crosses the goal line or not. The photos were previously referred to as stealing.

“I also found it to be a very difficult stage to evaluate,” admits Frank de Bleecker. Under review. “I was sitting in front of the TV and had to re-watch the images. At first, everything and everyone looked at a different stage. Did the ball cross the goal line or not?”

In the end there was also a decision on that stage. “We don’t have goal-line technology in Belgium. But the VAR looked at the scene from all possible angles and came to the conclusion that the ball had indeed crossed the goal line.”

“VAR must then look at the actions that took place before that action,” De Bleeckerie explains. “This is standard procedure. This happens all the time. At that moment it was noticed that two Cercle Brugge players were in an offside position.”

Did VAR make the right decision in the Club Brugge and Cercle Brugge match?

For De Bleeckerie, the goal was rightly disallowed. “One of these two players was already involved in the match situation. At that moment, the offside rules started to apply and it was over.”

“It took a really long time before the decision was made,” the former senior referee knows. He added, “But such a decision should not be underestimated. This was the decision of the season. They acted very well and correctly.”
