GdS: Chiffi gets major call right in Milan-Roma but game management is criticised

By Oliver Fisher -

The referee Daniele Chiffi received a mixed review for his officiating during AC Milan’s 3-1 win over Roma at San Siro yesterday evening.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) this morning have analysed the key refereeing incidents that occurred during Milan-Roma, starting with the first penalty given to the Rossoneri. With the help of the VAR, Chiffi rightly pointed to the penalty spot as Tammy Abraham extended his arm and touched the shot towards the goal by Theo Hernandez.

However, overall the management of the game left a lot to be desired and Roma could have been in even more trouble as it turned out, because in the first half Chiffi did not give two clear yellow cards to Ibanez and Vina.

The two red cards that did end up coming were incontestable as Karsdorp chopped down Theo to get his second yellow while Mancini got one for hauling Leao down inside the box.

    I am rossonero, but if you analyse the ref’s decisions, what about Roma’s claim for a penalty ?

    1. jimmy1138 says:

      Could have been a penalty but rather on the harsher side (Zaniolo fell too way easily).
      But then he would have to give Mikhitaryan’s foul on Krunic too.

    2. Stam says:

      Agreed. Too many soft penalties in the game nowadays.

  2. Joel Serrano says:

    Mourinho is a sore looser.
    Abraham by rule is a handball. PK
    But with VAR but w/VAR the rule should bo modified cause the handball don’t help the GK
    On Krunic that is a pk. VAR & ref mistake
    There were to many hands to the face uncall
    Manchini PK that was a bad call, a no call would have been great for that foul.
    & Mourinho should get at least 2 game suspensions for some of his comments.

    1. Blind Milanista says:

      You should ref the games Joel you are blind just like Daniele Chiffi

  3. Sean Smith says:

    What a one-sided review! Oh sorry i should have expected it. The website has Milan written on it. Every thing Milan did in the game was good. Roma should have had at least 5 red cards……rubbish journalism! So one-sided. Blind bats.
