Krakow - Legia.  Judge's fault.  Legia was entitled to a penalty kick

In the 39th minute, Legia took a free kick, and the ball was passed to the Krakow penalty area. There, after the copy, Bill van Amersvoort and Matthews Hounia fought for it. The “Pasów” player, covering the ball, hit his opponent’s face with his elbow and both players fell on the field.

Interestingly, Judge Przybic decided that he had wronged a player in Legia and whistled for the offense, awarding the football to Krakow.

Watching the replays, we have no illusions that Pelle van Amersfoort actually made the mistake and, by hitting his elbow in the opponent’s face, deserved a yellow card for a reckless attack. The intervention of the VAR judges, who served as Krzysztof Jakobek and Marcin Borkowski, seemed to intervene in an instant.

Unfortunately it did not happen, and the question remains why? The situation looks straightforward and clear, but the VAR remained silent and the game resumed.

Mateusz Holonia may have been offside by the time he crossed the penalty area. Unfortunately, no replays have been provided to confirm this. Even if he was offside, the VAR referees should have intervened anyway, because there was a potential penalty kick. After analysis, an indirect free kick should be replayed which should remove any doubts about this controversy. In the Friday match between Stal Mielec and Wisła Płock, such a situation occurred, and after the match resumed, the freezing frame was displayed with an offside line and no one had any doubts that he was offside before the foul.
