Deniz Aytekin didn't really have problems in this match despite the unexpected start.
Brugge scored at min. 08 and surprised the English side. The referee had a good foul detection and a clear and uniform line. He wasn't forced to take any big call and his co-operation with his team was good.
The only difficult moment After an air pass inside BRU penalty area, #27 MNU tries to control the ball which ends up on his chest. After that #28 while having his arms on his back, strikes the ball. The referee, upon consultation with AAR2 gives an attackerâs foul. However the replay doesnât support the officialâs decision (ball hit MNU player chest, AAR2 suggested it). According to this observer, the fact that the defender has his arms to his back makes the decision acceptable for no penalty considering that you can argue that the defender had no intention. On the other hand, the way he hit the ball, makes us believe that he knew where the ball was. A difficult case for the officials in real time and as a result we can back them.
