Calvarese Questions Var’s Lack of Intervention in Genoa-Juve Match and Malinovskyi Case

Former referee Gianpaolo Calvarese has provided a detailed analysis of significant events that occurred during the match between Genoa and Juventus.

In his analysis for Tuttosport, Calvarese highlighted two pivotal incidents. Both incidents transpired in Genoa’s penalty box. The first related to a penalty allotted in the first half due to goalkeeper Martinez’s intervention on Chiesa. Calvarese noted, “Chiesa shifted the ball and was then overwhelmed. There was no need to caution the goalkeeper.” He evinced the referee’s correctness in not issuing a warning to the goalkeeper.

The second incident involved a suspected handball by Bani on a cross from the right. This occurred early in the second half, shortly after Gudmundsson’s equaliser. Calvarese pointed out, “The Rossoblù defender adopted a risky posture and the ball struck his outstretched arm.”

Reviewing the replay, he noted an apparent deflection. Despite this, Calvarese stated it was strange that VAR didn’t intervene, considering that Juventus’s penalty claim was denied. He noted, “This season, we have seen penalties awarded for arm touches considerably less evident than this.”

Towards the end of the match, Malinovskyi was awarded a yellow card after a dangerous intervention on Yildiz. Calvarese suggested a red card would have been the rightful decision due to the player’s attitude, speed, and point of contact.
