The Video Assistant Referee has made yet another contentious judgment in the Italian Serie A this season, following his decision to allow a player to score a goal while holding a bottle of water in his hand earlier in the campaign
During the sixth week of the Italian Serie A season, the match between Genoa and Atlanta was a lot of fun.
A strong defensive line applied effective pressure to the opponent's attack as the visitors got the game underway on a high note. During the 9th minute of the game, Giovanni Someone scored his first goal for Hellas Verona, after executing a brilliant assist from Marco Davide.
This created an encouraging atmosphere for the visitors, who outperformed Genoa in the first 20 minutes of the match. Using Antonin Barak, Verona extended their lead.
Cricito's penalty spot kick gave Genoa the opportunity to come back stronger in the second half of the game. Genoa's brilliant performance resulted in their first goal of the match through Cricito. Matia Destro restored parity for the home team before scoring a contentious goal that should have been canceled by the Center Referee and the Video Assistant Referee, but was not.
Although a review showed that Dastro was holding a bottle of water while playing ball, the VAR and referee upheld Dastro's goal, which might be regarded as the worst decision made in the entire Italian Serie A this season.
Football rules prohibit a player from holding an object during play, in order to ensure the safety of the players involved. Dastro's goal should have been disallowed since it was in violation of the regulations of the game of soccer.
A late goal by Nicola Kalinik provided Verona an equalizing goal in the final minute of the game, bringing them level with their opponents.
