VAR reached an historic milestone, as it was used to disallow SPAL’s goal for 2-1 up and instead give Fiorentina a penalty in their 4-1 victory.
The technology inevitably takes time to use, so when SPAL went on the counter to score moments after Federico Chiesa went down in the opposite box, the confusion and tension was palpable.

The referee has disallowed a goal for @spalferrara after consulting VAR!
And he has awarded a penalty at the other end of the field for @acffiorentina!
