The challenge between Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic and Sassuolo forward Gregoire Defrel in yesterday’s Serie A clash at the Mapei Stadium was not a straight red card, according to Italian media.

This from today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that referee Luca Pairetto got the decision right in the controversial moment at the end of the first half.

The Gazzetta gave Pairetto an overall score of 5.5/10 for his performance, in which he sometimes let the match get away from him, but argue that he got the major decisions right.

Each team was awarded a penalty, and in both cases the case was clear-cut and giving the spot kick was the right decision, in the view of the Gazzetta.

Meanwhile, on the collision between Handanovic and Defrel, the newspaper gave the view that the contact was primarily made by the attacker running into the goalkeeper rather than the result of any action on the keeper’s part, and so Pairetto was correct not to send Handanovic off for the challenge.
