Maligned technology divides opinion after controversial Ramos goal for Real Madrid
With Brugge shockingly in front 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu in a Champions League match, Madrid grabbed a lifeline through a Sergio Ramos header.
The Spaniard met a cross from Karim Benzema with 10 minutes gone in the second half, cutting Brugge’s advantage in half.
The goal was given initially, though it appeared it would be waved off after replays seemingly showed Ramos behind the last defender when Benzema’s cross was played.
However, after a video assistant referee check the goal was surprisingly given, with Ramos shown to be onside by the thinnest of margins.
There were plenty of reactions to the goal on Twitter with many beside themselves that the goal was awarded, while others believed that it was a clear example of VAR working as intended.
