Last Tuesday (12), Internacional made an institutional visit to the CBF headquarters, in Rio de Janeiro, to discuss the topic of arbitration. The information was initially released by GE and confirmed by the report from Football in the Vein.
Football vice-president Felipe Becker and football director José Olavo Bisol represented the club. The directors spoke with Alício Pena Jr. and Rogério Carvalho, who are part of the CBF Arbitration Commission, as well as Péricles Bassols, who is the technical manager of VAR.
Six alleged penalties not awarded for Inter were discussed
Among the agendas was the search for explanations for six supposed penalties that Inter understands were not given in their favor in the Brazilian Championship. The moves took place between the 13th and 22nd round of the Brazilian Championship.
- Internacional 0 x 0 Cruzeiro – 13th round (penalty by Mateus Vital on Alan Patrick)
- RB Bragantino 0 x 0 Internacional – 16th round (penalty by Léo Ortiz at Enner Valencia)
- Internacional 0 x 1 Fortaleza – 20th round (penalties by Marcelo Benevenuto on Aránguiz and João Ricardo on Luiz Adriano)
- Flamengo 0 x 0 Internacional – 21st round (Wesley penalty on Pedro Henrique)
- Goiás 0 x 0 Internacional – 22nd round (penalty by Lucas Halter at Enner Valencia)

Despite complaints from Colorado, the arbitration representatives reaffirmed the position that none of the moves constituted a penalty. Still, Inter understands that the visit was positive.
— We discussed the issue of penalties. We also asked some criteria, we know VAR, how it works internally. We made an institutional visit, also taking this agenda, which we think they made a mistake. We sat there for an hour and a half, talking. It was valid — commented football vice-president Felipe Becker, exclusively, to the report from Football in the Vein.
