Benzema’s Goal Against Chelsea SHOULD NOT Have Counted, Argue Spanish Media

Real Madrid’s equalising goal in their Champions League semi-final first leg with Chelsea should have been chalked off.


That is the opinion of a refereeing expert in Spain who feels Zinedine Zidane’s side were fortunate match official Danny Makkelie did not spot what they felt was a foul in the build-up.

‘Casemiro commits a foul on [Cesar] Azpilicueta before [Eder] Militao heads to Benzema, who scores,’ Juan Andujar Oliver, a refereeing expert in Spain, told Radio Marca.

A subsequent poll on Marca’s website saw 48 per cent of voters go against Andujar Oliver’s verdict by insisting it was not a foul by Casemiro.

Makkelie came under pressure in the build-up to the match in the Spanish media with growing fears that Real Madrid’s leading role in trying to establish a breakaway European Super League would hurt them in the two legs against Chelsea.

The referee showed a great deal of leniency in treacherous conditions and if Andujar Oliver is to be believed, Real Madrid have Makkelie to thank for not ruling out what could prove to be a crucial goal in the balance of the tie.
