GdS: Referee Marciniak gets major decisions right during Dinamo Zagreb vs. Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Polish referee Szymon Marciniak has been praised for getting the major decisions right during AC Milan’s 4-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb last night.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) have provided their usual referee review starting with the most debatable incident in the 58th minute, when Robert Ljubičić pulled Sandro Tonali down after the midfielder had been put in behind by Ante Rebić’s backheel.

The penalty for Milan was clear as per the paper so that was a tick for Marciniak. There were no issues regarding the opening goal in the 39th minute as the cross from the right by Tonali found Matteo Gabbia well behind the offside line.

There were two challenges in midfielder that happened in the 34th and 35th minutes to interrupt Dinamo’s counter attempt. First was Theo Hernández on Sadegh Moharrami, then Rebić on Ljubičić, but both were rightly not given as fouls.

A yellow card was shown to Arijan Ademi (43′) for a late tackle from behind on Tonali and to Charles De Ketelaere (46′) for a stomp on Josip Mišić ‘s foot. Finally, it was right to disallow Tommaso Pobega’s goal as Divock Origi had started the move from an offside position.

  1. We’d be screaming about terrible refereeing if that penalty had been given away BY Milan – I thought it was very lucky. But you see them given.
