Corinthians complains about a penalty against Matheus Bidu at the beginning of the game. Referee Rodrigo José Pereira de Lima did not score on the field. Following the play, Bruno Méndez, from Timão, made a strong foul.
With one less, Corinthians takes the lead
The VAR, led by Rafael Traci, called the referee to review the move, but only the Corinthians defender was foul. The possible penalty was ignored, and Méndez ended up being sent off.
Even with one down, Corinthians took the lead at Arena do Grêmio, with a goal from Romero. The partial victory continued at half-time, when Alessandro tried to invade the VAR booth.
