« Against everything and everyone »: Vascaínos are enraged by arbitration in defeat to Palmeiras

On the night of this Sunday (27), Allianz Parque received Palmeiras x Vasco, a game valid for the 21st round of the Brazilian Championship. Alviverde got the better of it and won 1-0, but it wasn’t the result that drew the most attention in the match. VAR’s action, by annulling a Cruzmaltino goal in the first half, raised doubts and many complaints on the part of Vasco da Gama.

At 15 minutes of the opening stage, Paulinho hit a shot of rare happiness, beat Weverton and opened the scoring for Vasco. Despite the painting, the try was annulled. VAR caught Argentine striker Pablo Vegetti offside at the origin of the bid and invalidated the beautiful firecracker from the Cruzmaltino midfielder. In the repetition of the move, a lot of doubt. If the number 99 of the Rio de Janeiro team was really ahead of the penultimate defender from Palmeiras, it was by a matter of millimeters. But even with the enlarged image, nothing was clear.

Vasco was better in the match and the VAR action irritated the Cruzmaltinos. On social networks, many fans of Gigante da Colina detonated the video referee and protested against the CBF. “Against everything and against everyone” was the message most often published by Vasco da Gama. See some reactions:

Vasco’s situation in the Brasileirão

After suffering another defeat, Vasco stopped at 16 points and remained in 18th place in the Brasileirão. With Bahia’s setback against Botafogo, the distance for Cruzmaltino to leave the relegation zone remained the same (five points).

Despite the defeat in São Paulo, the fact is that since the arrival of coach Ramón Díaz, Vasco has been showing marked improvement day by day and this has given hope to the fans. The team’s next commitment is crucial for the club’s intentions in the Brazilian Championship. On Sunday (3), starting at 6:30 pm (Brasília time), Gigante da Colina faces Bahia, a direct opponent in the fight against relegation. Arena Fonte Nova, in Salvador, will be the stage of the duel.
