Watch: Videos show officials got three huge calls wrong during Milan’s defeat to Inter

By Oliver Fisher -

There were three major incidents that decided the outcome of last night’s Coppa Italia Derby della Madonnina, and all three went against the Rossoneri.

We begin with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s second yellow card. Totally discounting the fact that Romelu Lukaku should have seen red for refusing to stop pursuing the Swede after their altercation – which was another error – the second yellow from Valeri is a shocker.

As the replay clearly shows, the player – if any – who brings down Kolarov is in fact Brahim Diaz. Kolarov is the one who kicks Ibrahimovic as his leg moves back.


Then, the penalty incident. There is no clear angle to show that there was obvious contact or certainly enough to bring Barella down, which means that the on-field decision of no penalty should have remained given VAR is in place to eliminate ‘clear and obvious errors’ and not to aid exaggeration from attackers as happened last night.

Finally, the ‘foul’ for the free-kick leading to the goal. As the clip below shows, Lautaro Martinez in fact kicks the back of his own foot and flops to the floor.

    If Barella would have fouled Leao that way would you say no penalty too? 🙂
    Unlucky with Lautaro. I did not see that replay yesterday

    You are not doing anyone any favors with this “video analysis” since they only show that the officials made correct calls, you only show what poor decision making our players have. Maybe you could’ve argued that Lukaku had to get a red card when he lost it and Ibra did a number on him, that would’ve changed it all in our favor, but, since it didn’t happen, we had to play better.
    I think our tactics have been read and we don’t have a way of changing it up, since we don’t have anyone new on the right wing and the players we use basically play a right back just further up the pitch, zero contribution in attack, only defensive work. We just need to hold it together, somehow, and make it to the champions league, get some proper talent on the right wing and centre back, let them gel together for a season or two, and with that new experience the titles will come, 100%. Apart from Ibra, almost nobody in our starting lineup played in the CL and that is where a player and the team grows.
    Much love to all Milan fans!

    Relax, when we have our first team players back, we will be OK again. Chalhanoglu and Bennacer are crucial. Let’s just hope for no more injuries.

    We will be in the title fight until the end.

    This was the worst behavior I have seen from an Italian judge. A cowardly referee who did not let the first half be played as doubtless must have led to Lukaku getting a red card for his behavior … A referee who also showed Ibra and his yellow card, which was a red and also in both cases were doubtful , not to say that the former was wrongly convicted. The penalty was also incorrectly awarded and in the end the free kick that was awarded was not right …. Hopefully we will not see this awful copy to the referee any more time …. The derby is difficult to judge and a match like this would have required a Collina, almost

    Everything is clear,they just want Milan out and they’ve done it , it’s a lesson to the team,thus they have to play better henceforth so that bad officiating won’t hurt us

    The referee lost control of the match, ending the first half prematurely..this single incident made lose players confidence.. inter players began diving at any contest they faced coz referees weakness was too apparent as we approached the hour mark… he had to exert his authority by issuing a red, be it deserved or not..

    Inter was stronger from the start, but Milan was more clinical.. they could have managed to play with the single advantage was it not for the officiating error… The silver lining is that our new center back is a beast, n Milan has matured to a level that they can comfortably play with their backs against the wall.
