Referee Daniele Chiffi Correct Not To Award Any Penalties In Inter’s Goalless Draw With Genoa, Italian Media Argue

Referee Daniel Chiffi had a fairly quiet and efficient evening in charge of Inter’s Serie A draw with Genoa, and was correct not to award any penalties or send anyone off, according to Italian media.

The referee was praised for his handling of the match in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that he got all the major decisions right and that none of the potential penalty incidents came to much.

Chiffi’s first major decision came in the ninth minute when he handed Nerazzurri wing-back Ivan Perisic a yellow card for a hard challenge, but some Genoa players and staff felt it could have been red.

According to the Gazzetta, however, the yellow was correct and a sending off would have been harsh.

Meanwhile, the newspaper looks at two penalty appeals, first by Genoa for an Edin Dzeko shoulder-to-shoulder challenge on Filippo Melegoni on the half-hour mark, then by Inter for Leo Ostigard’s challenge from behind on Dzeko in the 44th minute.

In the view of the Gazzetta, there was very little in either of these incidents, and Chiffi was correct not to point to the spot in either case.
