Cameras Cut To VAR Room In Real Madrid Game, Not A Single Soul Was There

Cameras Cut To VAR Room In Real Madrid Game, Not A Single Soul Was There

There was a heavy VAR presence in Real Madrid's 4-1 win over Real Valladolid yesterday, but to the confusion of everyone, there seemed to be absolutely no-one in the VAR room.

The hosts, specifically their striker Sergi Guardiola, had two two goals ruled out after the referee elected to use the technology.

But on the first occasion when the cameras panned to the room where you'd normally find those in charge of VAR, there was not a soul in sight.

Did they just disappear and go out for a few pints during the game? Did they have a nice siesta?

Well, it seems there is actually a reason for it. As per The Mirror, the camera that the TV network cut to was actually one focused on a room used for an earlier game.

It was supposed to go to another room where there were officials checking VAR for the Real match - and so there were actually referees doing their job - despite TV footage showing otherwise.

In terms of the game, Real got back to winning ways despite going 1-0 down early on. Karim Benzema bagged a brace, while Raphael Varane and Luka Modric were both on the scoresheet.
