VAR does not intervene in a questionable Anderlecht goal, which also escapes red for Debast

Kasper Dolberg opened the score for Anderlecht in minute 37. A few minutes later, Anders Dreyer delivered another sledgehammer blow, although there was a smell to it. The Dane was just barely offside. When the signs were still hanging in Jan Breydel, the Purple & White also got away well when Zeno Debast, albeit involuntarily, stood firmly with the studs on the calf of Cercle striker Kevin Denkey.

Five minutes before half-time, Anderlecht seemed to have put the match into a decisive fold. The Purple & White combined smoothly through the Bruges center, after which Dreyer put the 0-2 halftime score on the board. After a long VAR check, the goal was finally approved. The Dane was, in the eyes of the VAR, just standing onside, although the offside line did not seem to be completely straight. Please judge for yourself.

The images:

Earlier in the match, the home team also complained about the match management. Denkey got the ball, shielded the ball, but was hit by the studs of Anderlecht defender Debast on the calf. Referee Jan Boterberg assessed the phase with a yellow card for our compatriot, but the VAR called the ref to the screen. Yet Boterberg stuck to his decision, much to the dismay of the Association.
