GdS: Milan on the wrong end of another critical refereeing error against Porto

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan can count themselves unlucky to have been on the wrong end of yet another bad refereeing decision in the Champions League, a report claims.

It was the French official Clement Turpin who took command of the game at the San Siro which ended with a 1-1 draw as Luis Diaz’s opener was cancelled out by a Chancel Mbemba own goal, but La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) reports that the game marred by the decision to allow Porto’s goal to stand.

The paper remarks how Milan ‘are not very lucky in the Champions League’ because after the refereeing mistakes in the matches against Atletico Madrid and Porto (first game, when there was a foul in the build up to Diaz’s goal again), yesterday a decision by the referee weighed on the result.

The goal for Porto came when Marko Grujic entered into a duel against Bennacer and tackled him from behind but by taking his leg out and knocking him over first. The referee Turpin let it go and the VAR chief Letexier did not call him back to watch a replay, not considering it a clear error.

    Nothing to complain about. Porto deserved their points fairly.

      What does it have to do with the validity of a refereeing decision?

      No matter who dominates, the referees are still supposed to judge the game based on the rules of the game. The rules say you can’t kick the opponent TWICE before getting the ball.

      It was a clear foul and the goal should have been disallowed – one way or another (VAR).

    Only in Serie A might that be considered a foul. I wanted it to be, but it’s not.

      LOL. You clearly don’t know the rules or even ever played the game.

    Bad refereeing! It was the problem, not unlucky things. It was obviously a foul. The truth can’t be hidden. The referee have to be punished. If players can be punished (for players given yellow & red cards), it should be the same with referees for his bad decisions.

    Porto outplayed us and probably deserved to win the game, but that was a foul on Bennacer.

    Shit happened. Lets move on

    The game against Atleti was lost because of the ref. Yesterday was a 50/50 call that I don’t think anyone really can complain about. One thing Milan must do is learn to play in spite of the calls refs are going to make mistakes they have to deal with those frustrations better.

  7. Samora says:

    Why must we always complain about referees errors?😔😔😔

    …we must work on our own efficiency to score goals during matches, play like “ACMILAN” consistently in all our matches and score again and again!

      The margins are so thin that such clear refereeing ERRORS decide the outcome of the game. That’s why we complain. So many lost points due to referees already and basically out of 16 because of that.
