Juventus and Lyon were both on the end of some absolutely terrible decisions to give away, and win, penalties in their Champions League clash.
The Italian side hosted the French side in the last 16 second leg on Friday night, as Europe's elite competition returned for the first time since March.
Lyon took an early lead in the game through Memphis Depay's Panenka'd penalty but they were extremely lucky to have even won the spot kick in the first place.

However the referee seemed to even things up, and Cristiano Ronaldo literally did, as the Old Lady made it 1-1 on the night from their own spot kick.
The referee decided that Miralem Pjanic's free kick was handled in the wall, despite the Lyon defender's hands looking like they were in a perfectly good position.
Hell of a makeup penalty call in the Juventus-Lyon game. Nonsense. pic.twitter.com/OY1v3ihgVc

Lyon actually won the first leg 1-0 in France so the away goal, thanks in part to the referee and VAR, put them in a really strong position.
The winner will face either Real Madrid or Manchester City in the quarter finals, with that game taking place next week in Lisbon over just one leg.
Do you think VAR has actually improved decisions in football? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
