Mainz top Freiburg after VAR drama

Mainz VAR penalty

Mainz went on to win the crucial relegation clash 2-0.

Freiburg appeared to have gotten off the hook before half-time as defender Marc-Oliver Kempf looked to have handled the ball only for the incident not to be picked up.

But Freiburg's players were already off the pitch and entering their changing room when they had to be called back. Some were looking at TVs to determine exactly what was going on.

After a lengthy delay, Pablo De Blasis stepped up to take the spot-kick for Mainz, beating Alexander Schwolow in the seventh minute of stoppage time to open the scoring for his side.

Kleindienst, on as a half-time substitute, almost equalised with a header at the right end moments later but the visitors were made to pay in the 78th minute.

'It leaves a bitter taste, but we have to accept it with a heavy heart. "Things are getting stranger".

They have also injured not less than 3,000 people since the start of protests, according to the reports by Gaza's health ministry. Israel says it is doing what it must to defend its border, and to stop any of the protesters getting across the fence.

Mainz on Monday returned to winning ways and climbed off the relegation play-off spot after grabbing three vital points following a victory over struggling Freiburg, who suffered their fourth straight loss, reports Xinhua news agency.

There were some weird scenes at the end of the first half when players left the pitch for the break with the score at 0-0.

However, as the players headed off, the official consulted VAR after a late incident inside the penalty box.

The game also had to be delayed at the start of both halves as fans protested against the match being played on a Monday night.

Six minutes and 44 seconds after the first 45 minutes were up, Pablo de Blasis stroked home to put his side a goal up and to allow both teams to head off the pitch for half-time again.
