AC Milan did very well to take the lead against Atletico Madrid earlier this evening but eventually fell, having played with ten men for most of the game. Yet, the Spaniards needed some help from the referee.
Pierre Kalulu was the culprit in stoppage time as he handled the ball in the penalty box. The referee pointed to the spot and Milan were immediately outraged. When we saw the replays, the reason behind that was clear.
As you can see in the video below, Lemar touched the ball with his hand before Kalulu, thus steering it in the direction of Kalulu’s hand. Very poor decision from the referee, by the looks of it.
