Legia Warszawa was doing very well in the first half of the match against Widzew Łódź. Although there was little evidence that Kosta Runjaic’s team would have such an advantage until the break, Legia is leading 2-0 after the goals of Johansson and Kapustka. It didn’t look that good in the second half, but Legia kept the lead and finally won 2: 1.
The second goal for Legia Warszawa brought a lot of controversy. All because of the game to Josue, who, while receiving the ball, was hit in the hand. The fans in the stands saw it and immediately began to whistle, because the action referee did not stop. Josue then passed the wing to Wszołek, who crossed the ball perfectly to Kapustka’s leg, who had an unobstructed shot past Ravas.
The situation was analyzed for a long time by the VAR system, recognizing the goal at 2: 0. As Szymon Marciniak, the referee of this meeting, confirmed to us, the situation for the judges was clear and clear. The play of the Legia player was not on purpose, and the hand was next to the body. What’s more, it was not possible to apply the “offensive” hand rule, because after Josue played with his hand, Legia players exchanged a few more passes, and the Portuguese’s play took place in the middle zone of the pitch.
There was also controversy in the case of the unrecognized goal for Widzew. Stępiński took advantage of Lipski’s cross and defeated Tobias from a few meters. However, the VAR analysis showed that Stępiński was on the minimum offside.
