Jerome Boateng Blocks Erling Haaland's Shot With His Arm But No VAR Review

Jerome Boateng Blocks Erling Haaland's Shot With His Arm But No VAR Review

Jerome Boateng appeared to deliberately block Erling Haaland's shot with VAR failing to intervene during Der Klassiker.

Video review was controversially NOT called upon despite the ball striking Boateng's arm inside the box.

Haaland's goal-bound effort was stopped by Boateng who deflected the ball wide for a corner with no appeal or video review.

Naturally, the contentious moment sent social media into overdrive.

"How did VAR not even look at Boateng's handball there? Stonewall penalty denied for Dortmund," one social media user wrote.

A second tweeted: "How was that not a penalty against Boateng!? Clearly stuck out his elbow which denied a goalscoring chance."

A third added: "Surely that's a handball from Boateng? Stops Haaland from scoring."

The lack of VAR proved costly as Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund 1-0 thanks to a first half goal from Joshua Kimmich.

Bayern Munich now lead Borussia Dortmund by seven points with eight fixtures remaining of the 2019/20 season.
