PSG vs Monaco Features Controversial VAR Decision And Fans Are Furious

PSG vs Monaco Features Controversial VAR Decision And Fans Are Furious

VAR has been at the centre of another controversy, this time in Ligue 1 after its involvement in Monaco's equaliser vs PSG.

The two sides had battled in an entertaining affair but Islam Slimani's strike is a big point of contention.

The Algerian is stood miles offside as the ball comes to him and he taps the ball past Keylor Navas.

However, VAR ruled that PSG defender Marquinhos played the ball before it dropped to Slimani and allowed the goal to stand.

It's a shame the game will be dominated by VAR chat as it was an entertaining affair at the Parc des Princes.

Neymar put Thomas Tuchel's side ahead early but Monaco winter Gelson Martins quickly netted an equaliser.

Monaco went on to take the lead through Wissam Ben Yedder who took his tally to 13 for the season.

But their lead only lasted 11 minutes as Fode Toure unluckily turned into his own net.

Neymar then gave PSG a 3-2 lead just before half-time after dispatching a penalty past Benjamin Lecomte.
