The VAR was correct in deciding to overturn the penalty awarded to Inter during the second half of their Serie A clash with Fiorentina yesterday, according to Italian media.

Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport has argued that if anything the foul was by Nerazzurri striker Lautaro Martinez on Fiorentina defender Lorenzo Venuti and not the other way around.

In the 64th minute of yesterday evening’s match, referee Daniele Chiffi pointed to the spot after a challenge between Martinez and Venuti which saw the Argentine striker go to ground.

In real time it appeared as though the Inter player had been unfairly challenge, but the VAR advised Chiffi to have a second look on the monitor and the official agreed with the VAR’s assessment that it had actually been Martinez who kicked into the foot of Venuti.

The official quickly waved away the Nerazzurri’s penalty, and the Gazzetta argue that this was the correct decision.

Meanwhile, the newspaper also suggest that Chiffi missed an incident where La Viola goalkeeper Pietro Terracciano picked up a backpass by midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli, for which Inter players appealed but the referee did not give anything.
