On Wednesday, February 7, there was a strong controversy after the penalty awarded by the referee of the match that ended with the classification of Riestra about Communications in the 32nd finals of the Argentine Cup.
Due to this situation, the AFA made the decision to suspend Joaquin Gil, who sanctioned a non-existent penalty that evidently favored the Bajo Flores team.
In this stage, Gil will no longer have participation in the next Monday crossing between Atlético Rafaela and Miter. Instead, actions will be conducted by Jorge Baliño.
How was this decision?
The last minutes of the match were being played and everything seemed like it was going to end in charges from the penalty spot. However, a play that came from the right zone was taken advantage of by Gonzalo Bravo, who fell to the ground without having had any contact with the defender of the opposing team.
After this action, the referee ruled a charge from the twelve steps that ended with the goal with which Blanquinegro qualified. After this indication there were protests from the Postman.
For now, its suspension will be until further notice and the national football authorities are probably considering the possibility that this type of matches will also have the support of the VAR.
