In the 35th minute, when the score was 0-0, the referee canceled a goal by Luis Diaz for offside. The VAR of the match did not change the referee’s decision. In a press release published after the match, the PGMOL recognized that it was a “clear and obvious factual error which should have resulted in the award of the goal through the intervention of the VAR, but it was not did not intervene.” PGMOL called the episode a “significant human error” and announced that it will conduct “a full review of the circumstances that led to this error.”
Liverpool considers “it is unsatisfactory that there was not enough time to make the right decision and that there was no subsequent intervention”. The club finds it “unacceptable that such failures have already been qualified in the past as ‘significant human error’. All results should be established solely by review and in full transparency.”
“This is essential for the reliability of future decisions as it applies to all clubs, and the lessons learned will be used to improve the process to ensure that this type of situation does not happen again,” the club added. “In the meantime, we will explore the range of options available, given the clear need for escalation and resolution.”
Liverpool finished this meeting with nine men after the exclusions of Curtis Jones (26th) and Diogo Jota (69th). The team coached by Jürgen Klopp will host Union Saint-Gilloise on Thursday in the Europa League.
