Sorry, eh … But “the Var did not have the images” is an unacceptable excuse. Because the images were there, it was enough to see them calmly, competently. Caution. We are not referring to the so-called “tactical camera” owned by the host company. No. Just look at the camera positioned on the corner to confirm at least two decisive details: 1) the assistant does not see any offside; 2) Candreva keeps Bonucci in play.

In the video commentary you find on this page, Sandro Sabatini also raises the problem – admitted by Aia, Lega and Figc – of the different number of cameras on the Serie A fields: that’s enough to say that there is no Var that is the same for everyone and for every game. And this disparity is even more dangerous than serious, because every championship game should be played with the same number of referees, assistants and – obviously – technological supports.

From federal president Gravina down, everyone is right to say that “unfortunately the Var did not have the images”. They do well because admitting the mistake would have catastrophic consequences: if one says “I was wrong”, you risk getting the appeal of Juve or the teams involved with Salernitana in the battle for salvation. And also pay attention to the world of betting: Thousands of coupons expired on Juventus’ victory… Well, the people of bettors cannot turn to the bookmakers because the rules are clear: the result of the field is valid. But if a government body (Federation, League or Arbitration Association) officially confesses an error, it becomes the target of disputes, appeals, courts and any compensation because – in fact – it admits the conditioning of the result on the field.

.

That is why the mistake will never be publicly declared. Although, privately, everyone knows that there was. And it was from Mr. Banti, at the Var.
