VAR controversially awards Man City penalty against RB Leipzig, fans can't believe the decision
| Last updated
Fans can't believe the decision to award Manchester City a penalty against RB Leipzig in their Champions League clash on Tuesday.
The Blues opened the scoring when Erling Haaland converted a penalty in the 22nd minute after Benjamin Henrichs was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the box.
Match referee Slavko Vincic reviewed the incident on VAR before pointing to the spot, with people online slamming the decision to award Man City a penalty.
One Twitter user wrote: "Didn’t even touch his arm."
A second tweeted: "That's softest penalty ever in City match, never a penalty, City didn't even appeal for it. If that's handball there would be three or four penalties every match."
A third added: "That’s never a penalty but I’ll 100% take it considering the RB Leipzig goal in the first leg should have never counted."
A fourth commented: "Horrible call handball rules have been so inconsistent with VAR."
A fifth said: "Never a pen that ball didn’t even change direction or touch his arm."
Another commented: "Never in a million years is that a penalty by the way."
Two minutes later, Haaland doubled his side's lead after he headed home following Kevin De Bruyne's long-range effort.
The Norwegian phenom completed his hat-trick just before the break after he bundled the ball over the line.
