Goal canceled by Montiel: Palmeiras vs River Plate, Copa Libertadores | Liberators cup

River Plate partially defeated Palmeiras 0-2, thanks to goals from Robert Rojas and Rafael Santos Borré, in the second leg of the Copa Libertadores semifinal.

With this result, the millionaire team is just one goal away from achieving the feat in Brazil and the series is the same, which began with a 3-0 against, as a result of the first leg, played in Argentina.

However, at River Plate’s best moment, the VAR, led by Colombian Nicolás Gallo, annulled the third goal for Marcelo Gallardo’s team, in a play that seemed legal, and that ended with a volley by Gonzalo Montiel, attacking the area, from the right side.

The action, which was initially given as a goal, had the intervention of the VAR, and after a rigorous analysis it was determined that there was a previous position ahead of Santos Borré and, therefore, it was canceled.

In the repetition, which is not very clear, it is seen that the Colombian comes from a millimetric advanced position, after capturing a rebound from Nacho Fernández. For many, the arbitration decision continues to generate doubts.
