Through the publication News Benfica, the club da Luz scalped up the performance of the video referee in the game with Rio Ave, namely with regard to the evaluation of out-of-game bids marked by Jorge Jesus’ team.
«Our team’s thirst for victory has been well patented since the opening whistle, constantly pushing the ball out of Rio Ave and impressing speed and aggression in all offensive moves. The success of the strategy and the fruits of the excellent display were revealed through the various goal opportunities created, with two goals scored and two others canceled, after the intervention of the video referee to mark out of play (by centimeters and well judged), throughout the first part. The play remained in the second half, with our team extending the advantage and, without calling into question the performance of the refereeing team, seeing a penalty shot transformed into an offside which, as far as could be seen in the television broadcasting, caused perplexity ”, it can be read.
In the same publication, the eagles express “the desire for quick improvements” for André Almeida, “a race champion who will certainly know how to overcome this misfortune.”
