Different situations, very identical moves.
Antoine Griezmann was sent off in Atlético Madrid’s loss to Liverpool in the 52nd minute after hitting Roberto Firmino’s head with his foot.
Moments later, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was shown the yellow card in Milan’s defeat at FC Porto, after also hitting Mbemba’s head with his foot.
The bids are similar, and for this very reason the Spanish press was outraged by the difference in criteria.
“Different criteria in similar plays. Situations that, in the case of rojiblancos, reinforce the argument of rigorous arbitration that was lived in Wanda Metropolitano. A move, in the final analysis, decisive for the future of the game», wrote the newspaper Marca.
