The WHERE was present in the first part of the Club World Cup final between Bayern Munich vs. Tigres and it was in favor of the Mexican team. It was barely the 18th minute when Joshua Kimmich sent the ball to the back of the goal defended by Nahuel Guzman.
Although at first the central referee Esteban Ostojich considered the goal valid, the claims of the Argentine goalkeeper and a call from the VAR booth made him review the play.
In the end Ostojich decided that Robert Lewandowski he was out of place and decided to annul the score, which would have meant 0-1 in favor of the Bavarian team. After Kimmich’s shot there seemed to be a deflection by the Polish international, who despite his efforts to get out of the way, brushed the ball.
At minute 58 it was the same VAR that confirmed the superiority of the Bavarian team. Lewandowski he finished off before the exit of Nahuel and the ball was at the mercy of Benjamin Pavard, who scored with easy execution. At first the whistler scored out of place, but after the review the goal was considered good.
