Looks like UEFA wanted to see NO GOALS in the 1st Half, this has been proven time and time again if you check the Replay:
- Firstly Sergio Ramos injured Mohamed Salah causing him to leave the game. Ramos received no card from the referee for doing it.
- In fact Ramos challenged Liverpool players and he is a defender, the referee backed up him up 100% of the times.
- Real Madrid SCORED A GOAL in the 42′ minute! It’s a legit goal. The linesman RAISED the flag ONLY after that goal was scored (an “offside” flag) … there is no better way to RIG the games.
- The players are forced to pass the ball, they barely attack each side, mainly because the referee takes advantage of any opportunity to switch sides, call fouls only when needed (e.g. to stop an attack).
Clearly UEFA wanted to see No Goals in the 1st half, perhaps they want to see a 0-0 by the end of the regular time (so Liverpool could easily win via Penalty Shootouts), the referee cannot disqualify goals after goals, so it would be interesting to see how the 2nd Half would develop but clearly there is a huge amount of RIGGING behind the scenes, and the referees/linesmen are behind it.
