Referee makes freakish VAR penalty call

The decision ruled that Daniel Brosinski's cross had been handled by Marc-Oliver Kempf, and Mainz midfielder Pablo de Blasis duly slotted the unexpected opportunity home to make it 1-0.

There were some weird scenes at the end of the first half when players left the pitch for the break with the score at 0-0.

The huge victory for means Mainz swapped places with Freiburg, taking their place just one spot above the relegation zone.

But while the players were walking back down the tunnel towards the dressing room, the video assistant asked Winkmann to look at the penalty call again.

He hooked Cohen up to the lie-detector machine and said: "I'll start with some easy ones. Robert De Niro fired back, once again referencing " Meet the Parents ".


Mainz and Freiburg players arguing over the penalty as the referee makes the decision.

"We were under the impression that when the referee blows for half-time that's it", said Saier.

The curse of VAR struck again as chaos descended during Mainz's game against Freiburg in the Bundesliga.

The confusion continued after the break, as fans threw toilet rolls onto the pitch in protest against Monday night games, delaying the restart by several minutes.

At the time of the robbery, the suspect was wearing sunglasses, a gray sweatshirt, black shorts and black gloves. Witnesses said a man walked into the store, pointed a.38 caliber revolver at the clerk and demanded money.


Footage from broadcaster Eurosport during the incident showed that players from both teams were already in their respective dressing rooms when Winkmann requested they return to the field.

La Liga, however, has opted to bring in VAR for 2018-19, while lawmakers have given the green light for video replays to be used at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Many German fans have opposed the introduction of Monday games, saying matches should be played on the weekend when most supporters can attend.
