Juventus forced AC Milan away from home to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Copa Italia clash played at the San Siro on Thursday, February 13th.
The first half ended goalless with neither side dominating the opposition. AC Milan, however, struck first when Ante Rebic converted a ball through to him by Samu Castillejo.
10 minutes later AC Milan were down to 10 men with defender Theo Hernandez receiving his second yellow card in the 71st minute.
Juventus started to dominate late in the game with a numerical advantage as AC Milan tried to defend their lead. However, with the game seemingly almost over a ball into the box by Juventus was going out of bounds only for star player Cristiano Ronaldo to attempt an overhead kick which hit the arm of an AC Milan player.
The referee saw it as unintentional but the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) overruled and gave a penalty despite the AC Milan defender not even facing the ball. Did Ronaldo and Juventus cheat AC MIlan with a penalty to have first leg advantage? watch the video and decide
