Trailing 2-1 in added time, Bayern Munich thought they could equalize through Matthijs de Ligt in the 13th minute of added time, resuming a deflection from Thomas Müller’s header. But the referee of the match, the Pole Szymon Marciniak, very quickly whistled an offside position for the Munich left-back Noussair Mazraoui, signaled by one of his two assistants, before even letting the situation play out until the end. end.

The referee”apologized

In slow motion, neither Noussair Mazraoui nor Matthijs de Ligt appear to be in an offside position, covered by Real central defender Antonio Rüdiger. “This decision is an absolute disaster. We must let the action play out until the end. This is the rule, especially since it is so close to the goal, and it is so limited. The first mistake is made by the linesman, the second comes from the referee“, estimated Thomas Tuchel.

The scene at the end, I find it incredible. I can’t understand why he doesn’t let the action play out. He apologized. I wouldn’t want to say that Real are always lucky, but it makes the difference today“, slipped de Ligt, at the microphone of DAZN. “He himself knows in the end that it was a mistake“, estimated Manuel Neuer on DAZN.

For Bayern striker Thomas Müller, “the situation (of the disallowed goal, editor’s note) was very strange. I won’t be able to say what happened but it happens very often in Madrid. This has happened to us before.” On the contrary, Real’s French defender Ferland Mendy judged on Canal+ that “this is all the strength of the club at the end of the match. We are very united, we give our all together. You might think it’s luck, but it’s anything but luck to get there again.”
