If the video assistant referee's controversial ruling is established, Manchester United's season in the Champions League will be ruined. On Wednesday night, the Manchester United Red Devils played against Atlanta at Old Trafford for their third week of matches.
Due to a controversial goal that should have been ruled out of offside, the away team took the lead. After 14 minutes, Atlanta scored 2-0. At the end of the first half, the Red Devils were two goals behind.
In the 53rd minute, Marcus Rashford's goal once again brought hope to Manchester United, while Harry Maguire added a second goal for the hosts. Lucas Digne sent a cross and Luke Shaw scored the ball to give Cristiano Ronaldo the lead.
When VAR gave Atlanta's first goal a foothold, it was the most controversial moment of the game. Mario Passalic scored after David Zapacosta passed the ball, and he did it skillfully. Although Mario Passalic was clearly offside, the goal was allowed to stand due to the penalty of the midfield referee.
Manchester United was defeated by the young man because of the terrible and controversial judgment of the center referee. Without consulting the video assistant referee, he sent Wan Bissaka off the field.
When Manchester United played against Atlanta, the midfield referee made another costly mistake, which may have damaged the Red Devils’ chances in the group stage.
Manchester United is the third team in Group F to enter the game. The Atlanta Falcons and the Young Boys were clearly ahead of the Red Devils. The victory over Atlanta put them among the best in Group F.
With VAR and the midfield referee allowing goals, Atlanta now has a chance to rise to the top of the standings. If there is no siege in the second half, Manchester United has a small chance of winning the game.
If Atlanta wins at Old Trafford, it will be very difficult for Manchester United to make it through the group stage.
