The CBF hit the hammer on the formal complaint made by Fortaleza for not scoring the maximum penalty during the match against Goiás, on June 9th. According to Leão, referee Bruno Arleu de Araújo (FIFA / RJ) made a mistake by not giving a penalty for the move made by Yago Pikachu, in the 19th minute of the first half.

The move in question was carried out by the emerald defender Caetano, who pushed the tricolor right-back in the penalty area. Called by the video referee Pablo Ramon Gonçalves-RN, Arleu even consulted the monitor to review the bid, but followed up with the decision not to apply the penalty to the defender of Goiás.

The decision taken by the CBF Arbitration Commission was to admit the referee’s error and remove him from his scales. In this way, Bruno Arleu de Araújo will only referee in games after completing a training program. In the document sent to FCF and Fortaleza, the representative of the football entity recognizes the ‘brusque movement’ and the lack of correct punishment.

According to the mentor of the CBF, there was an impact on the attacker caused by the movement of the defender of Goiás. In addition, the representative ‘sympathized’ with Fortaleza’s feeling for the arbitration error and assured that Bruno Arleu de Araújo will be referred to the newly created Arbitration Performance Assistance Program (PADA), where the reason for the mistake will be evaluated.
