Chelsea disallowed crucial goal against Real Madrid by VAR as Marcos Alonso sees strike disallowed for handball


Marcos Alonso saw what could have been a winning goal scored by VAR against Real Madrid.

In a thrilling game at the Bernabeu, Mason Mount and Antonio Rudiger brought Chelsea level.

Alonso thought he gave Chelsea the lead in the second half

Alonso believed he had sent Chelsea to dreamland and a 3-0 lead by kicking into the net, only to have the effort called off after a VAR review.

Alonso was ruled for handling the ball after it ricocheted into the box, leaving Chelsea ahead 2-0 and tied still at 3-3 on aggregate.

talkSPORT commentator Jim Proudfoot said: “I don’t think there’s actually an advantage for him. I don’t think it should be banned, but they can only arbitrate it based on the applicable laws.

“The current law states that if a player scores a goal following a ball in his hand, then it is disallowed.

“If the ball had rolled towards someone else, that would have counted.”

There was still plenty of drama in the encounter, however, as Timo Werner latched onto a fine through ball from Mateo Kovacic to leave the Real Madrid defense for dead and slot in via a deflection and put the Blues 3-0 up with a quarter of an hour to play.

Just as Madrid were eyeing the breaking point, Luka Modric popped up with the assist of the night.

The Croatian playmaker’s raking pass found Rodrygo in the area, and he side-footed home on the volley to bring Real back from the brink.

Real trailing 3-1 to leave the level level at 4-4 on aggregate as the game went into extra time.
