The new technology places Fiorentina ahead


Fiorentina qualifies for the 1/8-finals for the Italian Cup thanks to the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology used in the tournament from this round. Violettes beat Sampdoria 3-2 on their field, with two of their goals coming after penalties for the use of the technology in question.

Seconds before the end of the regular 90 minutes, Nicholas Muruu of the visitors` team played with a hand in the penalty area, but the judges did not see the situation well. It was necessary to look at the record and only then was the penalty given, as Jordan Veretus kept cool, ranking his team ahead with the final 3:2.

The Senegalese Kumai el Babakar opened for the hosts after just two minutes of play, but in 39th Edgar Barreto equalized. During the second half, the penalty shootout came. In the 59th Veretto made 2:1 of the white point, and here VAR help to see the violation of Babakar. But this time, the sailors wiped off the opponent`s lead after Gaston Ramirez did not make a mistake from the 11th meter in the 77th minute. The culmination was in the 90th minute when the referee gave a second penalty to Fiorentina and Veretou was right again.

At the 1/8-finals, the viola will face the winner of the Lazio - Citadel couple playing on Thursday. Fiorentina joins Inter, who yesterday slipped forward after a penalty shootout. Later tonight, Milan and Verona will determine the third round of the tournament.
