VAR Somehow Missed Casemiro's Dive For Real Madrid

VAR Somehow Missed Casemiro's Dive For Real Madrid

Real Madrid managed to beat Levante 2-1 in a tight game on Sunday night but they were very fortunate to get the match winning penalty from VAR after what looked like a big dive from Casemiro.

It can't be easy for any La Liga side coming up against Real Madrid at the best of times. The 13 time Champions League winners have one of the best teams in the league by a country mile.

Sure they might not be doing great this season, since the loss of Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo, but they're still third and any side with the likes of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric et al must be taken seriously.

On Sunday Levante managed to take Real close to yet more dropped points. Despite being in 13th place the home side had the game level after 76 minutes.

Real had taken the lead through a Karim Benzema penalty only for Roger Marti to level the game on the hour mark, however Levante were denied the chance of a share of the points by VAR.

Casemiro was adjudged to have been fouled by Cheick Doukoure but the video replay suggested there was little to no contact and the Brazilian just threw himself to the ground:

Real Madrid Fan Exposes The VAR Conspiracy Theory

published at5 months ago

It's the second time recently that Real have been on the end of a controversial decision from VAR after Ajax had a goal chalked off by the video officials during the first leg of their Champions League last 16 match.

Bale's winner from the spot leaves Real 12 points behind Barcelona and five behind Atletico Madrid and in third in La Liga, though they do have a game in hand.
