VAR was at the centre of the battle between Juventus and Sampdoria at the Allianz Stadium in Serie A’s Saturday lunch match, wherein the Old Lady just about ran out 2-1 winners.

Samp were the first to profit from referee Paolo Valeri taking a second look at a corner that ended up being handled by Emre Can, then awarding a penalty for the visitors.

Juve had their own penalty awarded for a more controversial call in the second half and Marco Giampaolo’s side were ultimately victims of the technology’s implementation, with Riccardo Saponara having a goal chopped off in time added on.
