    VAR wasn’t used for the Fernandinho foul vs Schalke

    I watched the last few minutes of the Porto/Roma game. When the Porto penalty went to VAR the commentators said that it was being checked to see if the guy who was held back was offside before being fouled and if he was the foul wouldn't have been penalised. I may be wrong but when Ferni gave the penalty away, they said the offside aspect was irrelevent! Who knows what to make of these ‘laws’ nowadays?

    The whole tournament is structured so that this is the case - away goals, two legs, group phase, seedings - its all designed to ensure only a handful of teams have any chance of winning.

    VAR briefly checked it, as they would do all penalty incidents. But the penalty was confirmed pretty much straight away

    I agree. What it is doing is putting a definite metric upon the number of dodgy decisions that go against us versus the number that go for us.
    It's their own evidence. If it continues to mount up, we have evidence to argue bias in their subjectivity.

    if VAR was unable to assist the cartel it would get nowhere near a football stadium.
