CorSport: Serie A will debut semi-automated offside in Supercoppa derby

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan and Inter will square off in the Supercoppa Italiana on Wednesday next week and semi-automated offside will be devoted by the Lega for that clash. Hopefully, it will contribute to less controversy. 

Semi-automated was, of course, used in the World Cup and the technology uses sensors in the ball to determine if it’s offside or not with great precision. As reported by Corriere Dello Sport (via MilanNews), it will be debuted in the Supercoppa.

AIA, the referees’ association, have been testing the technology for several weeks now and the Supercoppa final will be the first game. It will then be used for the rest of the season in Serie A, as per the newspaper.

The Supercoppa will be played in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday and kick-off is set for 20:00 CET. For now, though, Milan are focused on taking on Lecce this evening and will be hoping to bounce back after two disappointing results.
