Champions League

According to photos made available in 3D, De Bruyne’s goal for Manchester City against Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinal should not have stood.

The Belgian international tied the score at 1 in the 67th minute with a beautiful long-range effort. This drew the Sky Blues back into the contest.

Due to a long-range goal by Vinicius Junior, the Citizens were behind at the break. De Bruyne afterwards scored from an almost identical location.

Talk Sports reported that the goal enraged Real Madrid players and manager Carlo Ancelotti, who felt it should not have been allowed to stand.

Referee Artur Dias gave Ancelotti a dissenting booking, and VAR did not examine the goal.

Arsene Wenger, the former manager of Arsenal, spoke about the City goal on beIN Sports during the game. The network’s 3D technology determined that the ball had truly left the field of play.

According to Wenger, through Madrid Zone, “VAR should have checked Bernardo Silva’s controlling the ball out of play.”
