Lazio's Penalty Against Borussia Dortmund Branded One Of The Worst Refereeing Decisions In Champions League History

Lazio will be leaving the Westfalenstadion feeling very lucky indeed after an incredibly questionable penalty was given to the Italian side in their Champions League draw with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

Midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic dived over Nico Schulz after the German had perfectly cleanly cleared the ball.

This cost the Bundesliga outfit the three points, with the game finishing 1-1 after Raphael Guerreiro's earlier goal was cancelled out by Ciro Immobile from the spot kick that resulted.

Supporters from any club, let alone Dortmund were left questioning the decision when the replay surfaced. Delaney clearly gets the ball, which is then out of shot for the actual dive.

Despite the availability of VAR, the decision wasn't overrulled - which left fans questioning the point of the system once again.

The decision could have an effect on Group F, with Dortmund currently in first on ten points, Lazio second on nine, and third place Club Bruges on seven. Had Dortmund come away with the three points, then they would have been confirmed as group winners.

However, with Lazio playing Club Bruges next week, it at least doesn't have any effect on the race for second - with the Belgian side needing to win that encounter whatever had happened tonight.
