Controversial Memphis Depay Panenka penalty vs Juventus 2020 | Bentancur Aouar Tackle? Bernardeschi Foul

By Soccer Blog | Aug 7, 2020

This Lyon penalty vs Juventus was a very controversial one from the second leg of their CL knock out tie, with Rodrigo Bentancur seemingly penalised for a foul on OL’s Aouar. Replays however clearly showed that Bentancur got the ball, with clarification later coming in that it was for a foul by Bernardeschi (Jersey 33) and not Bentancur. Memphis Depay stepped up and to add insult to injury for Juve, scored a cheeky panenka penalty, and it was this goal that knocked Juve out on the away goals rule.

Closeup view of Bentancur tackle on Aouar- no penalty should’ve been given for this tackle that got the ball?

Edit- clarification later received that it was for the foul by Bernardeschi.

    If that doesn’t meet the clear and obvious criteria for overturning a penalty decision, not sure what does. Juve player got the ball.
