The play began after the local striker recovered the ball in attack. When he was about to enter the area, the Millionaire’s defender jumped on him and rests his shoulder on his rival’s back: it was an infraction.
The big question is whether the Uruguayan referee Esteban Ostojich should have sanctioned free or penalty kick. The foul starts outside the area and, still on repeat It is not clear if it ends inside.
When in doubt -and without VAR-, it is correct that the maximum penalty is not sanctioned. The curious thing was that he interpreted the movement of the River player as lawful. He didn’t even charge a foul outside the box.
The Argentine striker Silvio Romerowho started at the venue and had been replaced, was expelled for protesting.
