OTHER Shortly before the half hour, Peyre pulled Raman down in the penalty area, but ref Boterberg saw no harm in it. Strangely enough, there was no sign of a VAR intervention. Afterwards, it was confirmed that VAR had effectively watched the phase.
Vincent Kompany, however, was not happy about the phase and made himself angry along the line. Result: a yellow card. "That yellow was justified," Kompany is brief about the phase, "The referee and I have a difference of opinion about that phase, that's all I can say about that."
Benito Raman is immediately sharper about the phase, "It was clearly penalty, I've already seen the footage back in the meantime. Yet the referee told me he didn't see a pulling move."
