The first half of the match between Borussia Dortmund and Ajax Amsterdam was full of referee controversy. The umpire’s decision regarding Mats Hummels’ red card in particular looks strange.
The Eredivisie players were hungry for the return leg after a painful defeat two weeks ago. Then they lost 0:4 in the opponent’s area. The Dutch put on a real show of skill in front of their audience.
In the second match of these two teams, the situation in the first half became very complicated for Dortmund. In the 29th minute, Mats Hummels was fired from the field with a red card.
The German actor tried to get the ball out of Anthony by moving the ball. He missed the ball, but he also did not catch the legs of his opponent – it was the Ajax footballer who stepped on his leg and fell as a result.
However, Michael Oliver pulled a red card. It appears that the referee’s decision had to be changed after the VAR analysis, but it has not.
– Late Hummels. But it wasn’t red – Rating of Tomasz Urban on Twitter. Lukas Podolsky also publicly disagreed with the judge’s ruling.
This situation was by no means the only contention in the first half. Borussia received a penalty after an alleged foul at Bellingham. Marco Reus turned “11” into a target.
