Some late controversy occurred in the final stages of the first-half of action in the Champions League final as Karim Benzema had an opener ruled out for offside.
A VAR review of the effort ensured that the scoreline remained 0-0 going into the half-time break despite there appearing to be some contact on the ball from Fabinho and Ibrahima Konate.
The decision came about due to the fact that a deliberate ball hadn’t been played back by a Red to the French hitman (in an offside position).
