Juventus Fans Are Incensed That VAR Invalidated A Late Arek Milik Goal Saying It's Ruining Football

After falling behind twice, Juventus battled back and came close to winning in Turin, but VAR overturned a late goal from Milik for Leonardo Bonucci’s offside.

Milik’s goal was disallowed because the Italian defender was just outside Salernitana’s last man, and he also received a red card for pulling off his shirt during the celebrations.

Max Allegri, Juan Cuadrado, and Federico Fazio of Salernitana all received red cards for dissension.

On social media, the majority of Juventus supporters are upset with VAR and think the judgment was incorrect because Bonucci was outside of a Salernitana defender’s line of sight but didn’t obstruct Luigi Sepe or interfere with play.

In their Serie A match against Salernitana on September 11, 2022, Allegri’s team appeared to be unlucky not to win after having two goals disallowed for offside, two players sent off, and two players red-carded. This resulted in an incredible tie for the Old Lady versus the Visitors.

At the Allianz Stadium on Sunday, September 11, 2022, Salernitana fought valiantly against the Old Lady, but Antonio Candreva’s goal in the 18th minute of the first half gave the guests the lead.

Despite trying to breach Salernitana’s defense before the first half ended, Allegri’s team was unsuccessful because Dusan Vlahovic’s goal for Juventus in the 39th minute was disallowed for offside.

After that, three minutes into the first half’s stoppage time, Salernitana was awarded a penalty and Juventus defender Bremer was given a yellow card. Krzysztof Piatek then fired the ball past Mattia Perin to give Salernitana a two-goal advantage.

The Old Lady outplayed Salernitana and made more of an effort to breach the opposition’s defense in order to tie the game and possibly score additional goals to earn all three points, but Vlahovic, Arkadiusz Milik, and Juan Cuadrado all missed good opportunities.

However, the Old Lady’s big moment finally arrived as a thrilling stoppage time equalizer followed.

Tonny Vilhena’s unsportsmanlike challenge inside the area resulted in Juventus earning themselves a penalty as well.

The shot was taken by Gleison Bonucci, but it was blocked by Luigi Pepe. Bonucci swiftly grabbed the rebound and scored to tie the score at 2-2.

Arkadiusz Milik thought he had scored the game-winning goal in the 95th minute, just before the second half ended, but the goal was disallowed for offside.

Was it a wrong decision?

The Serie A insists that the VAR considered Antonio Candreva’s position despite new video evidence suggesting that Juventus’ victory over Salernitana should have been appropriately allowed.

Arkadiusz Milik’s header from a corner that would have broken the tie at 2-2 was disallowed because Leonardo Bonucci was deemed to be offside and interfering with the game.

After the game, Max Allegri and Bonucci expressed skepticism, claiming Candreva was close to the corner flag and so kept everyone onside.

According to the footage supplied by Sky Sport Italia, Bonucci was onside by a good 50cm at the time of the Milik header while Candreva was 2.9 meters from the touchline at the time.

However, the Lega Serie A confirmed to DAZN that Candreva was taken into consideration while drawing the line to determine Bonucci’s offside position.

The Sky Sport Italia camera does not use a specialized algorithm like VAR that accounts for camera angles in order to determine a location on the field that is more accurate.

What is the Juventus fans reaction?

A lot of Juventus fans feel the decision that saw their club’s late-minute goal ruled out was erroneous; some fans went on Twitter to air their views on the match. See some of their comments below:
