Expensive cost the Chilean referees Cesar Deischler Y Eduardo Gamboa, in charge of the VAR, the error made when canceling a legitimate goal to Cerro Porteño, which could have changed history in the defeat of the Paraguayan team 2-0 against Fluminense, for the first leg of the round of 16 of CONMEBOL Libertadores Cup.
It is that after Conmebol came out admitting that it was a mistake, the governing body of South American football announced an indefinite suspension for both judges, in addition to the Argentine referee Julio Fernández.
This was made official through a statement from its Arbitration Commission, where it stated that “technically analyzed by this commission, concluding that they have incurred serious and manifest errors in the exercise of their functions in the development of the aforementioned match, specifically due to the cancellation of the goal of the Cerro Porteño club, of course offside“.
In this way, the three judges were suspended for “an indeterminate time in the exercise of their functions in competitions organized by Conmebol.”
Of course, the punishment will not disqualify them from directing matches in national competitions, so Deischler and Gamboa could deliver justice in Chilean soccer.
