Haywire VAR reverses "clear cut" penalty and red card to save Real Madrid



Late goals from Sarabia and Kylian Mbappe was all that was needed by PSG to avoid a defeat by Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League heavyweight clash on Tuesday night.

Karim Benzema scored an early goal for Madrid in the 17th minute, and for much of the game, Real Madrid dominated the midfield and tested PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas with multiple attempts at goal.

VAR had  in the second half be put to the test after it looks as if goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois fouled a PSG player. But after multiple consultations with the Video Assistant Referee, the Referee rescinded the Red card handed to Thibaut Courtois and scrapped the 1-1 awarded in favour of PSG.
