Mainz v Freiburg: Hosts awarded penalty on VAR after half-time whistle blown

Mainz VAR penalty

Daniel Brosinski tried his luck before half-time and his shot took a deflection off Freiburg defender Marc Oliver Kempf's hand.

VAR confusion reigned in the Bundesliga as Mainz and Freiburg players had to be recalled from the half-time break after a penalty was belatedly awarded.

Referee Guido Winkmann initially allowed the game to play on, denying Mainz a penalty, before blowing for halftime shortly thereafter. After reviewing the incident he then decided that Freiburg had handled the ball in the area at the end of the first-half, meaning Mainz now had a penalty seven minutes into the interval! One Freiburg player could even be heard saying: "No, we're not coming back out".

Freiburg coach Christian Streich, who was recently sent off for dissent in a league match, was pictured on the sideline smiling and shaking his head in disbelief after being told to bring his players back out. Some were looking at TVs to determine exactly what was going on.

Mainz midfielder Pablo de Blasis scored the penalty to put the hosts 1-0 up. "Things are getting stranger".

Mainz fans protest the Monday night contest by throwing toilet paper onto the field.

When the game was eventually restarted Mainz doubled their lead in the 78th minute after a shocking error from the visiting keeper, who gifted the hoists the second and final goal of the game.

Protests also delayed the initial kickoff, and the whole game took place to the sound of shrill whistles as supporters made their displeasure known with the Bundesliga.
