You are currently viewing Video: slap in the face, Boselli injured, but they did not charge a penalty

Controversy in La Plata. When barely 20 minutes had passed between Estudiantes and Newell’s at Estadio Uno, a play inside the visitor’s area left a player with blood and the VAR analyzing what had happened. Cristian Lema rejected a ball and hit the face of Mauro Boselli with his hand, who ended up injured. Jorge Baliño did not see a penalty, neither did the VAR. Here, the video.

The controversy: was it criminal?

The play occurred when the Uruguayan Manuel Castro looked for Boselli, threw the ball into the area and the Estudiantes striker went looking for it, but ran into Lema and his right hand. Mauro fell clutching his face and Baliño let him continue. After a while, when the game stopped, the VAR reviewed the play.
