“In the event of a counter-attack, RC Genk attacker Paintsil continues at speed in his own half and plays the ball in front of him,” says De Bleeckere in his weekly review of the weekend. “Club Brugge defender Sylla is clearly too late and hits RC Genk’s attacker at full speed and with high intensity. The Club Brugge player has no intention or ability to play the ball and endangers the opponent’s safety. The referee gives a yellow card. We expected a red card for this foul. The Referee Department understands that the VAR did not request an onfield review from the referee because not all technical criteria were present for an intervention.”
