    Here's the run for the penalty (great run btw):
    UEFA Champions League Soccer: Juventus vs. Atlético Madrid | TNT

    Notice two things:
    - Kuijpers mimicing the shove
    - Correa not complaining and very, very meek protests (if you can call those protests) from an Atletico team that usual crowds the ref over 50/50 fouls at the halfway line

    And btw, other than on this forum, I've barely seen anyone saying it wasn't a penalty, and certainly noone calling it a scandalous decision.
    But then again, the penalty call wasn't on a Frenchman. And it was for a Ronaldo hattrick.

    I know bashing managers is an Italian pastime , but I don't understand why Juve supporters are so hard on Allegri.

    It's not like Juve's ever been synonymous with beautiful football , and all the dude does is win.

    I was too busy watching the Tottenham game tbh. Call me when Allegri wins something that isn't handed to him.

    It's easy to win when you have the best team in Italy. The only team that can compete with us are Napoli and even they are one of the biggest chockers out there. I can put a donkey in place of Allegri and still come out with wins.
    Allegri didn't have to put much of an effort today because Athletico didn't even show up to play.

    People need to stop with the "X deserved to win" nonsense. If a team deserves to win, then they'll do it without the help or hindrance of the ref.

    Is he really the highest paid coach in the world? I find that hard to believe.

    Alphanaldo called the remontada before the game and he backed it up

    Griezmann and his electrocuted hair nowhere to be seen

    Yeah we should just remove refs altogether and whatever happens on the field happens.

    That's a stonewall penalty to be fair. I'm the furthest thing from a Ronaldo fan too.

    Sure, but the days get much longer for majority of people except random weirdos like bakers. Again it is better for society that the sun goes down at 7pm thanks to Daylight saving than the other way around.

    But that’s the thing. If there are 50/50 calls, no matter whether a penalty is called or not, a team is gonna feel like they were helped or hindered. And judgment calls will always exist.

    Again, not remotely what I'm saying. I wasn't even referring to the play in question but rather the notion that if it a team outplays another but doesn't win because they don't do what it takes to win (IE outscore their opponent) then the notion they deserved it is wrong. If the refs weren't a factor and Juventus won fair and square, then they deserved to win. However if Atleti had parked the bus for say 120 minutes and then somehow won on penalties then they would have deserved to have won.

    Enough debating about the Juve pen. Did Atleti deserve one from the Chiellini tackle/dive at the end?

    No. Contact is nowhere near the ball, which is nearly in the keeper's hands.

    That being said Chiellini should be banned for life.

    It's not a foul anywhere on the pitch, Chiellini just stop and braces for impact.

    That said, I agree 100%, he went from a dude playing with blood flowing all over his face when they were behind, to a guy who flopped 3-4 times in ridiculous ways when they were ahead.

    Read the rules at some point before telling everyone to know about them :laugh:
    50/50 IS trolling.

    You contradict yourself with the frenchman thing, but whatever.
    It was not a penalty. Period.
    If you call for that "contact", then you have 100 pens a game.
    And if it was for the clip, he did to himself.

    Yep, scandalous. Not that Juve are through, but that they're through on this call.

    But then again, I'm not surprised. What we have here is a bunch of fans of "big teams" who are used to getting such calls go their way. It's business as usual.
