The season is barely seven match days long, but the decisions of the referees and VARs have already caused a lot of commotion. Similarly this weekend, with questionable phases in Club Brugge versus Cercle Brugge and AA Gent against OH Leuven. As every week, the Referee Department sheds light on the most questionable phases.
After the Bruges derby, there was a lot to do about the canceled penalty kick for the Association, which saw an opportunity to take the lead away early in the second half. After an intervention by the video ref, Lawrence Vissers ruled that Iké Ugbo went to the ground too eagerly after an improper tackle by Simon Deli. Although the images seem to support that view, the Referee Department believes that the VAR should not have intervened for a clear error. They therefore support the original decision and state that Cercle simply deserved a penalty.
The two eleven meters of the Buffalos were also under discussion in AA Gent against OH Leuven, but the Referee Department did not provide an explanation about this, surprisingly enough. However, the authority ruled that striker Laurent Depoitre had to be given a red card for a rash intervention, in which the VAR should have intervened. In addition, the video ref and referee Jonathan Lardot are thrown wreaths for their ‘teamwork’ with a disallowed goal from the home team, where first an advantage was given and then returned to a foul by Alessio Castro-Montes.
