They forgave Atlas’ penalty against Pumas for hitting Santamaria’s elbow

Mexico City /

The semi-final match between Atlas and Pumas was marked by a controversial decision by whistleblower Jorge Antonio Pérez Duran, who did not dare to score a penalty kick in favor of the university students for the elbow of Anderson Santamaria on Juan Dinino, or, failing that, a hand from him of the player, as he carried it in a position Abnormal.

When the 86th minute of the match was on, Alan Muzo sent a center with a lot of poison from the right area, something that Dineno himself and Washington Coruso went to look for, although neither of them could finish the match as they would have liked due to the appearance of Santamaria.

The Peruvian appeared clearly with his left hand raised and in his motion put his elbow on Dineno, who had ended up lying on the grass and needed medical attention to try and calm a nosebleed.

In the same action, Corozo can be seen finishing with his head, but the same movement of the defender’s red and black hand prevented the ball from taking a dangerous direction.

Jorge Perez-Duran went to VAR to review the play after he was notified, but considered that there were no elements to score the penalty kick.

At that moment the scoreboard was in favor of Pumas 1-0, so a second goal could put Atlas against the board.
