In the latest episode of Open Var, new details have emerged regarding the controversial match between Inter and Udinese. Notably, a penalty secured by Lautaro Martinez came under scrutiny, which paved the way for a Nerazzurri breakthrough.

The match referee, Di Bello, was quoted as saying, “The defender did nothing!”, suggesting he saw nothing irregular in the contact made. This opnion was not shared by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), Mazzoleni, who urged Di Bello to reconsider, stating “He unbalances him, come see it” (as told on Open Var).
