Interviews with Cristante in the interval: “He does not give himself advantage on penalties, do you blame me because he missed the penalty?”
Juventus-Rome high tension at the end of the first half: the Giallorossi, under a network, enter the area with Abraham which seems to touch for Mkhitaryan (the assistant Bindoni in fact signals offside, then denied by the VAR) but the touch is from Danilo which therefore puts Armenian back into play. The Giallorossi, however, fails to conclude, laid out by Szczesny, so the referee whistles penalty without waiting for a possible advantage which then arrives: the ball ends up on the feet of Abraham scoring a useless goal since the penalty had now been assigned. From the disk Veretout gets his shot parried from eleven meters from Szczesny and the score remains 1-0 at half-time.
In regulation of the football game, on page 93, rule 12 reads: “The benefit does not have to be applied in situations involving a serious foul play, violent conduct or an offense involving a second warning, unless there is a clear opportunity to score a goal“.
THE AUDIO IN THE CHANGING ROOM TUNNEL: “YOU DON’T GIVE AN ADVANTAGE ON PENALTIES”
In the intermission of the match, Dazn played audio from a conversation between Orsato and Cristante in the locker room tunnel with the referee defending himself: “The goalkeeper comes out, penalty, offside, and if I don’t blow the whistle? No advantage is given on penalties. And then you blame me for missing the penalty?“.
