Scandal on the 4th day of the Russian Cup.
The match on the fourth day of the group stage of the Russian Cup between Paris NN and Spartak ended with a big defeat for the Nizhny Novgorod team, but everything was decided only at the end. Sergei Yuran’s team had the opportunity to score at least one point, which is now worth its weight in gold for the outsider of the quartet. Therefore, at the end of the match, the home coach became emotional and strongly attacked the main, in his opinion, culprits of this result – the referee team led by Evgeniy Bulanov from Saransk.
“I looked now, Amelin was sitting on the VAR. In the 10th minute, Alexandrov received a hook to the face. And the VAR does not react. This is pure red, *** [блин]. The purest, *** [блин]. I just watched this episode on my tablet. The VAR does not see it, *** [блин]?! A Spartak player hits with his fist. What is there to comment? What kind of football can we talk about? I’m already tired, *** [блин]From this, boys also need to be respected. There will be no more comments,” Yuran was indignant.
During the match, Yuran repeatedly reacted to the judges’ decisions, either with a wry smile or by expressing some complaints to them. In particular, he did not like the disallowance of Alexander Troshechkin’s goal. However, the Paris NN coach behaved like this in the previous match on matchday 8 of the RPL against Dynamo (1-1). in Moscow. But then he probably calmed down after the successful end for the Nizhny Novgorod team, but now he couldn’t hold back.
We were talking about an episode that actually happened a little later than Yuran said. Closer to the middle of the first half. In the fight for position on a set piece, Spartak central defender Nikita Chernov hit his colleague in the role, Viktor Alexandrov, with his hand. He fell to the grass and stayed there as the meeting continued. The Nizhny Novgorod center did not immediately come to his senses.
After the replay, it really looked like Chernov had fouled Aleksandrov. However, Bulanov did not call a penalty during the match and his VAR assistants also did not see a foul that would have resulted in a penalty. At that moment I remembered an episode of the Russian Cup semi-final three years ago between Zenit and Spartak, when Vilmar Barrios hit Alexander Sobolev in the face with his hand. In St. Petersburg, the judges also considered that contact of the defending footballer’s hand with the attacker’s face does not give rise to a penalty. However, Yuran has a different opinion.
What happened in the match “Paris NN” – “Spartak”:
“Spartak” is the best team in the Russian Cup! But Abascal has a forward left
Yuran promised that the Nizhny Novgorod club would contact the RFU ESC regarding Bulanov’s arbitration. But whatever conclusion the judicial panel of experts reaches, it will not add points to Pari NN. The Nizhny Novgorod team is close to being eliminated from the Russian Cup: with two rounds left, it is three points behind Dynamo and Krasnodar.
