The Avellaneda classic was in the hands of Racing Club due to a controversial penalty at the end of the game, which left Independiente on fire and raised criticism from the entire football world towards the match referee, Mauro Vigliano.
This Sunday, the national director of arbitration Federico Beligoy he disapproved of his colleague’s performance and confirmed that he will be suspended. “It is a serious mistake in a very important game. We decided to preserve it,” he said this morning in TyC Sports.
In addition, he gave his opinion on the possible cause of the error: “It was about the end of the game, perhaps because of the wear and tear he did not arrive with the lucidity necessary to make the right decision.”
“In the talk I asked him if he needed anything, he wanted to know how he was doing, I did not tell him about the game,” Beligoy closed.
The play came in the 95th minute, when Ivan Maggi entered the area and after a hook he dropped on Sergio Barreto’s mark.
Vigliano was very close to the action and did not hesitate to collect a penalty, unleashing the fury of the players, coaching staff and even those close to Rojo.
